Powershelf is pleased to announce Merisant, the manufacturer of some of the world’s leading tabletop sweetener brands including Equal®, Whole Earth Sweetener Co.®, Canderel® and Pure Via®, is joining the Powershelf Network—an always-on, real time asset tracking system at select Giant Eagle locations.

“Powershelf has the potential to revolutionize the in-store shopping experience for all stakeholders: retailers, brands and consumers,” said Brian Huff, President, North America at Merisant. “We are very interested in leveraging Powershelf to learn more about how our products perform on the shelf.”

“Out-of-stocks are such a major problem for retailers and manufacturers alike. We are excited to work with Merisant to improve their on-shelf-availability, and show them what the future of retail looks like,” said John White, CEO of Powershelf. “We are confident Powershelf will not only reduce out-of-stocks, but will also deliver unprecedented insights to the Merisant team.”

The Powershelf system is deployed at select Giant Eagle grocery stores, with additional installations in the convenience, natural foods, grocery, and life sciences channels. Through its base of installations, Powershelf is able to report live data back to consumer packaged goods (CPG) customers anywhere in the world.
