“Advantage Report is an established industry programme in the Convenience and Wholesale Channels and has been running in the UK since 2001, when the UK operation was set up.

Emerging Trends in Convenience for 2020 and Beyond
A Strong Convenience and Wholesale Offering and Growth with Advantage UK
Advantage Report Retailer programme in the Convenience Channel has exponentially grown year-on-year with strong support from both suppliers and leading retailers/wholesalers. This year, just under 800 individual respondents from over 370 different suppliers provided feedback to their key customers through the Advantage Report programme (an increase of over 100 additional suppliers since 2018).
Advantage Report offers extensive trend data and whilst being an industry programme, we are able to offer a great degree of flexibility and tailoring when it comes to reporting the results. With significant consolidation and changes in the channel, ‘having trust in the relationship’ has been identified as the most influential factor in achieving success by both suppliers and Convenience retailers in this year’s programme.
