Fast-growing discount grocer expands analytics capabilities


Aldi has extended its partnership with Nielsen to gain more shopper and advertising effectiveness insight.

Nielsen and Aldi announced an expanded multi-year relationship for integrated analytics data around shopper panel, custom retail analytics and advertising effectiveness. Under the agreement, Nielsen will be Aldi's preferred data and analytics provider, covering the chains' nearly 1,700 stores in 35 states across the U.S.

Nielsen will provide Aldi with a combination of analytics, including consumer-sourced panel data, custom retail analytics and advertising effectiveness. Nielsen’s combined consumer panel and advertising effectiveness analytics, the only integrated data set of this capacity available to the industry, brings forth a deeper view of shopper panel data and the role that advertising plays within it, a critical strategy in navigating today’s evolving grocery retail landscape.

“We are continually creating a better grocery store for our customers,” said Scott Patton, VP of corporate buying at Aldi. “We selected Nielsen for its differentiation of consumer and retail data in the marketplace, so we can continue to focus on doing what we do best – save people money on their grocery bills.”

Aldi operates almost 1,700 U.S. stores in 35 states. The company has said it plans to have 2,500 locations in the United States within the next five years.
