Shopper Insights for Consumer Product Manufacturers and Retailers
ORC International understands that what consumers "say" and what shoppers "do" may often be two different things. That's why our shopper insights services are dedicated to helping manufacturers and retailers understand consumers throughout the purchasing process, from pre-store, to in-store, to point-of-purchase.
