For 2015’s report, which delivers actionable recommendations to grow the category towards a £1bn target by 2020, RbD has delivered two bespoke research pieces on behalf of Marston’s. Our dedicated shopper survey spoke to over 1,000 people to understand their attitudes towards the PBA category, whilst our shopper behaviour study monitored the behaviour of 900 consumers in store. 

This is the third consecutive year RbD has worked closely with Marston’s to deliver category insight that supports its targets for growth in the rapidly expanding Premium Bottled Ale category.

“We have worked with RbD for a number of years to supply insight into the Premium Bottled Ale category. As well as providing findings and recommendations that feed into our yearly Premium Bottled Ale Report, the results form a crucial part of our strategic planning for Marston’s future involvement in this rapidly expanding category. RbD have become a trusted partner, working collaboratively with us and delivering insight that is relevant and well thought through.”
