NostraData Retail Performance

Total retail performance was 20.7 per cent up compared to last week and 3.6 per cent up compared to the same time last year. Overall growth recovered from negative territory over the last 12 weeks and based on the trend last year looks to decline -6.3 per cent over the next nine weeks. The top performing category, Natural Medicine was 49.1 per cent greater than the next largest category, Baby, last week. The top brands are A2, Panadol and Elevit. At the same time last year, Panadol, Elevit and Ferro were the top three brands. A2 Platinum sales were unexpectedly high last week, with all three steps of the formula in the top 10. We expect this trend to remain for the foreseeable future.
