Grocery & Retail Gourmet

The U.S. grocery market generates over $638 billion in sales and employs 3.4 million people. It is one of the nation’s largest industry sectors and is rapidly evolving in an increasingly competitive and complex retail environment.

The Canadian grocery market is a C$139 billion industry, and it faces many of the competitive and economic challenges that confront U.S. retailers.

EnsembleIQ's grocery brands are dedicated to staying 'ahead of what's next' in helping retailers and their supplier partners succeed in this dynamic space.


There are over 150,000 convenience stores in the U.S., a huge but fragmented market, with purchase decision makers in both corporate headquarters of chains and on the store floors of independent owners.

The $40 billion+ Canadian C-store market employs over 165,000 people and serves more than 10 million customers every day.

EnsembleIQ's convenience brands bring their respective segments news and information that facilitate more effective businesses, not just in stores but throughout the C-store supply chain.

Private Label/Store Brands

More than ever, retailers today need to utilize store brands to differentiate themselves from their competition. Innovation and exclusivity have never been more important for private brands to help retailers achieve loyal customers.

Store Brands delivers the strategic and tactical information retail executives need to develop and support compelling, differentiated store brand programs. From industry trends and opportunities to innovation tools and store brand success stories, Store Brands provides actionable ideas for maximizing quality and profitability in store brand programs.

Shopper Marketing

Shopper Marketing has always been a big focus keyword, but may never have truly been understood. EnsembleIQ has been at the forefront of this discipline, and knows the ins and outs of this nuanced experience.

Let EnsembleIQ's newest area of focus guide you to finding the perfect shopper experience to get ahead.


From Fortune 100 retailers to single-store apparel manufacturers, from global food manufacturers to start-up restaurateurs, technology is the lifeblood of successful business. Technology fosters internal efficiencies across operational functions, and it drives external engagement with business partners and end-user consumers.

Decision-makers at consumer-facing organizations need to understand which existing and emerging technologies can best help them achieve these critical business goals. And they need to identify the technology partners that will best help them get there.

EnsembleIQ's technology brands provide the thought leadership and networking opportunities that companies in the consumer goods, retailing and hospitality industries need to build the internal capabilities and external partnerships necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing marketplace.

Pharmacy & Medical

EnsembleIQ Canada has healthcare professionals covered with its mix of products addressing pharmacists and technicians, physicians, and healthcare managers in English and French.

Our print publications, including Pharmacy Practice + Business and Profession Santé, inform and inspire pharmacists and pharmacy owners to be their best in their new role as primary healthcare providers, and to help them run a profitable, successful pharmacy focused on better patient care and customer service. Meanwhile, the Medical Post is a uniquely independent voice for Canadian doctors addressing important issues such as compensation/fees, practice management and regulatory issues.

Supporting these brands are robust websites—CanadianHealthcareNetwork.ca, ProfessionSante.ca and eCortex.ca—which offer up-to-date healthcare news, lively commentary and accredited professional learning.

Foodservice & Hospitality

The North American foodservice and hospitality markets employ more people and drive more revenue than almost any other market segment. But with more and more retail markets entering the foodservice arena and technology becoming central to the hospitality industry, it is increasingly difficult for operators to compete. EnsembleIQ's foodservice and hospitality brands are dedicated to helping with cutting edge insights, practical education, and integrated marketing programs.

Retail Business Leadership

A business is only as good as its leadership, and success or failure can rest on that leadership. From marketing strategy to operational decisions, leadership can make the difference.

Let EnsembleIQ's deep reach in the area of leadership help you and your business connect with your target audience.
