Weetabix Food Company has appointed eCommerce analytics platform, E Fundamentals, to help drive its current eCommerce performance and outline its future online strategy.

Weetabix has appointed the eCommerce analytics provider as it looks to ensure brands are easy to find and information is consistently presented to shoppers in store and online. The partnership will also ensure that the nation’s favourite cereal has ‘brilliant basics’ in place online and is equipped to evolve with the changing shopper landscape.

E Fundamentals will also support with upskilling Weetabix’s UK sales and marketing division across its brand portfolio, which includes Weetabix, Alpen, Ready Brek and Weetos, to build internal capabilities and incorporate eCommerce within future brand plans.

2019 will see the continuation and evolution of Weetabix’s award winning ‘Have You Had Your Weetabix?’ campaign. The partnership with E Fundamentals aims to replicate the strong visibility Weetabix has already built with shoppers online, through improved search terms and product information.

A comprehensive product range and evolving consumer landscape has led Weetabix to apply greater focus on its eCommerce strategy to enhance product performance, starting with the rollout of the E Fundamentals analytics platform in the UK – currently one of the biggest ecommerce grocery markets in Europe. E Fundamentals’ online tools will equip Weetabix with actionable data so the brand can disrupt and expand in a competitive category.

E Fundamentals will help Weetabix build a strong eCommerce foundation across all brands by establishing best practices and helping to increase overall breakfast category value for online grocery retailers. The service will support the company by seamlessly integrating eCommerce into its wider business and driving online sales through its ‘8 Fundamentals’ framework.
