Grocery stores, in particular, have a history of relying on third-party brand artwork and content creation rather than sourcing directly from manufacturers. This incurs excessive costs for brands and retailers and adds unnecessary middlemen that can lead to outdated or inaccurate listings and slow down the rapid go-to-market coordination demanded by today’s digital commerce.
