Just clarifying the information last week regarding the Q3 NOW targets.

When it comes to the Q3 target, your outlet needs to achieve this SOM based on the combination of Peter Jackson FMC + Longbeach FMC.  The brands include sub-brands such as Peter Jackson Classic, +Fresh Burst etc.   Regardless of the SOM of the two brands from their base, the outlet only needs to achieve the NOW target to qualify for an A grade.

In the example above, the retailer had the following breakdown of Peter Jackson & Longbeach SOM from Q1:

Peter Jackson 5.00% SOM

Longbeach 4.44% SOM

Benchmark from Q1 9.44%

If the outlet was to finish the quarter with the following, they would be considered to have achieved their target:

Peter Jackson 2.0% SOM

Longbeach 8.5% SOM

Q3 PJ&LB SOM combined 10.5%
