New York, NY – Oct. 2, 2018 – Today, Nielsen Brandbank, the world’s largest provider of trusted digital product content for e-commerce websites, mobile shopping apps, merchandising and marketing, announced that it has been chosen to join Walmart’s Connected Content Partner Program. With this designation, Nielsen Brandbank will be an official enrichment provider for Walmart, focused on creating and managing content for the retailer’s grocery categories.

Walmart’s choice of Nielsen Brandbank to lead the enrichment of its Connected Content Partner Program recognizes Nielsen Brandbank’s strong position within the industry and the value and strength of the Nielsen Brandbank content.
“We are proud to be a digital content partner for Walmart and are thrilled to be amongst the curated community of content experts within the Connected Content Partner Program,” said Raymond D’Aprile, Commercial Director North America at Nielsen Brandbank. “Nielsen Brandbank is well positioned to help Walmart’s FMCG suppliers navigate the changing landscape of online and mobile shopping. As Walmart makes its transition from a brick and mortar retailer to a true omni-channel commerce destination, our dedicated team of data specialists, product photographers and quality assurance managers will produce quality digital content to accurately represent grocery products and brands in an engaging, consistent manner that aligns with Walmart’s content strategy.”
