Best Displays: Quarter 3 2021

– Seen in store – 

At Snooper we understand the importance of having great activations that benefit manufacturers, retailers and shoppers. We also believe inspiration doesn’t only come from what your direct competitors do but from other categories as well.

Therefore, each month, our Snoopers report hundreds of displays that caught their attention and take photos of them. Brands that have subscribed to ‘Snooper Best Displays’ have a full access to this library. A rich source of information that help them easily benchmark competition, find inspiration and track the number of votes by brand throughout the year.

As the ‘Best display of the Month’ report is providing a qualitative assessment of the display execution in store, Snooper can also help you assess your off-location strategy from a quantitative perspective: our ‘Share of Visibility’ report tracks share of display by category, brand and pack type.

In the 2021 winter, Mondelez was the undisputed winner of best displays, tying up more than two-thirds of the best displays across the country as voted by our Snooper shoppers, with Cadbury at 40% of all best displays.

Interestingly, categories talking to winter warmers, beyond bakery snacks and breakfast oats, were surprisingly absent.

The big call out for Beverage were new categories being Off Located. This has been showcased in the on-trend non-alcohol alternatives category, exemplified in Woolworths with Heineken 0.0

In addition to new categories being off-located, here are a few of the displays that caught our shoppers’ attention between July and September. In general, scale of display was equally important as any theming.

The Mondelez Monopoly on Displays

Mondelez had no fewer than 6 different chocolate activations in field during the quarter, and a number of these were multibrand displays from which other brands in the portfolio, namely Pascall, Natural Confectionery Company, and Oreo were beneficiaries of the halo effect of display adjacencies and inclusions.

Most mentioned by our shoppers was the ‘Help Cadbury give $100,000 so girls can get in the game’ footy related displays.
