“It’s fantastic to see innovative FMCG marketing campaigns coming to the fore in a market that has seen margins tumble, which in some cases has led to smaller marketing budgets. The FMCG and grocery sectors of retail marketing are perhaps the most difficult of all, with retail marketeers having to adhere to much stricter instore guidelines than other parts of retail.”
