Newfoundland and Canada’s Territories are not covered presently. These panellists are given a hand held scanner by which they scan the barcodes on the items they buy as a part of their household purchases. Once a week, the collected data is transmitted back to the company by the scanner. Analysis of this data gives first hand insight into the behaviour and attitudes of the consumers.
