Heritage Brands wished to cement its position as market leader in the pure essential oils category and drive new and expanded pharmacy channel distribution. Not only would the Oil Garden range resonate strongly with key pharmacy shopper demographics, but also deliver portfolio growth and improved commercial returns.
The cornerstone of the strategy was the targeting and acquisition of new retail banners and independent pharmacy customers, in parallel with working closely with Chemist Warehouse stores directly to influence and drive major promotional activity and planogram compliance. Working across both retailer management and in-field support, Rocket were able to drive incremental sales, increase distribution and create an aromatherapy & wellness destination category with the Oil Garden range. Equally important was to continue focussing on organic growth through ongoing banner partnerships with new range implementation and consumer value pack and gift offerings for seasonal events.
All retail banner and independent stockists have seen strong growth in their pure essential oils category driven by Oil Garden attracting new shoppers.
- Sales in the independent & banner pharmacy marketplace have grown +60% over the past three years.
- Sales in Chemist Warehouse have grown 15% over the past three years
- Oil Garden has grown its distribution significantly across the independent & banner pharmacy marketplace from 500 stockists to 750 (+50%)
- Acquisition of five new banner group customers (Amcal, Discount Drug Stores, Good Price Pharmacy, Chempro & Star Discount Chemist) generating incremental new business equating to 21% of total brand value over the past two years
