About the team

The UK Off Trade encompasses grocery multiples, symbol groups, eCommerce as well as cash and carry wholesale routes to market. It is a highly competitive and concentrated market with large scale customers and competitors providing a fast paced and dynamic trading environment. The Off Trade is a data rich environment which enables a relatively sophisticated analytical approach to managing customers. The key dynamics include the continued growth of the grocery multiples, the growth of convenience and the development of digital platforms.

The UK market is a well-developed, competitive environment with a number of large competitors selling to very well developed trade segments. The On Trade consists of over 120,000 licensed premises supplied by a number of large national and many small regional wholesalers. Although the On Trade Channel in totality has been under pressure in recent years, the markets that Pernod Ricard operate in remain comparatively buoyant. Thus the channel is an important contributor to the profit of Pernod Ricard in the UK as well as playing a vital role in building the equity of our brands with consumers.
