On Shelf Availability

This Working Group is focused on helping retailers and their partners to both recognise the crucial importance of on-shelf availability to retail profitability, but also the various ways in which the issue can be more effectively addressed.

The Working Group is supported by some of the leading academics in this field, offering members a unique forum for sharing new knowledge, tools, and techniques to not only cut retail losses associated with this problem, but also help to deliver a better shopping experience for retail customers.

Our Meetings

ECR Retail Loss Group regular working group meetings provide an opportunity to network with industry peers, hear updates on the latest research and sector initiatives, and development new skills and insights. All retailers, CPGs and academics can participate at no cost.
