ECR National who can assist their development.

At the heart of ECR is people
development. Developing the skill-
set of the sector’s employees is
crucial and promotes the need for
education and improved
knowledge. Ultimately, ECR
develops better collaborators.
Individuals with multi-disciplinary
competencies and an ability to
negotiate with trading partners to
unlock the “win-win” scenario and
provide best-in-class service for
consumers & shoppers.

EFFICIENT CONSUMER RESPONSE (ECR)?
ECR - The Association ECR - The Concept
There are twenty National ECR Initiatives in Europe
who work closely together.
This network allows ECR Nationals to share the most
effective national projects often culminating in their
adoption across Europe.
These local networks are the most widespread
collection of retailers, consumer goods manufacturers
and service providers for the grocery sector in each
of their local domains. By aggregating the local
networks, the most powerful network of companies in
the European grocery sector is formed encompassing
domestic operators and multi-national concerns
This massive network allows the ECR to develop
relevant output, create widespread awareness and
encourage European-wide adoption.
ECR – THE CONCEPT
The purpose of ECR Community is to facilitate companies &
trading partners (retailers, manufacturers and service
providers) to collaborate for the benefit of consumers in a
“Transforming the way we work
together to fulfil consumer wishes
better, faster and at less cost”
During its existence, thousands of companies across
Europe have contributed to and implemented on a
national or European level this unique model of
excellence in collaboration across the consumer
This collaboration should be within the confines of
the Focus Areas of ECR.
