Back in 1987, Red Bull not only launched a completely innovative product, it created a whole new product category – Energy Drinks. Since then, Red Bull’s approach to deliver the best product on the market is to put the customer at the heart of every decision, but to do so, a thorough understanding of the customer was needed.
By working closely with Checkers (one of Shoprite’s upmarket store chains in South Africa), Red Bull initiated a collaborative journey to increase its involvement in assortment decision-making, embedding dunnhumby’s customer data science and insight, to drive category growth.
