NielsenIQ Rises to the Omnichannel Measurement Challenge8.12.2021 15:01:00 EET | Press release

The shopper journey continually evolves as consumers have more control over what they do, see, and hear. That means the tools used to measure and analyze sales, market share and consumer behavior must also change. In an environment that continues to experience seismic shifts, measuring when, where and how consumers are buying is imperative. This allows fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) manufacturers and retailers to anticipate trends and react faster to consumers’ needs and expectations. Although the fastest growing channel in Western Europe and North America is online, e-commerce measurement tools are largely fragmented. Users must combine data from multiple sources to get a full picture of the market. NielsenIQ is transforming the FMCG and retail industry with its innovative solutions and precise insights, which offer an integrated, accurate, complete, and more granular view of the offline and online marketplace—making it easier to analyze trends across channels.

While all four organizations embrace the European Commission’s vision to maintain safety, protect human rights and create a harmonized framework for artificial intelligence and robotics, the collective sees the following primary issues with the proposed regulations as currently drafted: The mandatory third-party certification requirements will slow tech innovation across Europe. The restrictions will hinder artificial intelligence adoption and put European companies, especially SMEs and startups, at a competitive disadvantage glo

 Aleph Farms and WACKER Develop Open Supply Chain Solution for Proteins Used in Large-Scale Production of Cultivated Meat8.12.2021 14:09:00 EET | Press release

Aleph Farms, the first cultivated meat company to grow steaks directly from non-genetically engineered animal cells and WACKER, a supplier of leading protein production technologies, today announced the development of streamlined production processes for essential growth medium proteins to cost-effectively grow cultivated meat. These proteins, central to promoting and supporting cell growth, are not widely available in the market today and represent one of the most prohibitive expenses in scaling up cultivated meat. The agreement between WACKER and Aleph Farms is non-exclusive, meaning any cultivated meat company will be able to obtain these same affordable proteins, without using fetal bovine serum (FBS) or animal-derived ingredients. This open supply chain solution is expected to enable the industry to scale and achieve price-parity faster, eliminating a key hurdle in the commercial viability of cultivated meat.
