The 2013 Summit may be coming to a close, but IRI has plenty more news to share. We kicked off the third and final day of another action-packed Summit with not one but three major announcements. Check out the summaries below or click the links for full details.
The results are in! Today IRI’s annual New Product Pacesetters report revealed the most successful food and beverage and non-food CPG product releases of 2012 across the U.S. multi-outlet geography (a new feature of this year’s report!), which includes traditional grocery, drug and mass market retailers, as well as sales from dollar and club channels, Walmart and military commissaries. Dannon Oikos, Starbucks K-Cups and Bud Light Platinum were the top three best-selling new food and beverage brands, while Allegra, Colgate Optic White and PetArmor earned top honors in the non-food category.

IRI’s second annual DigitaLink segmentation study analyzes shoppers in the United States, France, German, Spain and the U.K. based on how they use smart devices and online media to research and buy CPG products.
