As the holiday season approaches, FMCG businesses are gearing up to make the most of the festive cheer. One crucial aspect that can significantly impact a company’s success during Christmas is smart pricing. This article explores how market research can empower brands to make informed pricing decisions that maximize profits and attract customers during the Christmas season.
