ChannelSight and Recipe Guru announce strategic partnership to help global brands and retailers translate increasing levels of recipe content engagement into positive commercial outcomes

Dublin – 15th June 2020 – ChannelSight, the leading ecommerce intelligence solutions provider for brands and Recipe Guru, a global provider of enhanced, curated recipe content for food and smart kitchen brands have announced a partnership aimed at driving better brand engagement and measurability via recipe content.

“With more home-cooks of all skill-levels confined to their kitchens than before, now is the optimal moment to announce this partnership. With a view to combining the expertise in recipe sourcing, curation and creation from RecipeGuru, alongside ChannelSight’s ecommerce know-how and capabilities, we are offering a powerful end to end commerce enabled recipe ecosystem for brands and retailers” Niamh Sterling, CEO at Recipe Guru

The recent unprecedented shift towards home cooking as a necessity has given rise to a number of challenges for brands and consumers. Product scarcity is a particular issue and consumers are cooking with unfamiliar ingredients, lower budgets and varying cooking skills. Search interest in ‘how to make sourdough starter from scratch’ was up 4,750% over the past 90 days, while product limitations mean that searches for ‘pantry recipes’ increased 250% in the same period.  At the same time, adoption of online grocery solutions is soaring. The opportunity for brands to connect with consumers using recipe content is at its peak. The partnership between Recipe Guru and ChannelSight enables brands to adopt an end to end shoppable recipes solution at a critical time.

“The timing has never been better to harness the power of ChannelSight to help translate the high engagement rates into commercial outcomes for global brands and retailers who source their recipe content from Recipe Guru to inspire and delight their digital shoppers across all owned, earned and paid digital media platforms.” Niall O’Gorman Co-Founder at ChannelSight

Shoppable recipes have been gaining traction for a number of years now, however they have often been far-removed from e-grocery. A lack of curation and options to purchase products has led to many brands losing sales to competitors, and users copy-and-pasting recipes into google to find relevant products to cook with. Niamh Sterling, CEO Recipe Guru explains:

“With more home-cooks of all skill-levels confined to their kitchens than before, now is the optimal moment to announce this partnership. With a view to combining the expertise in recipe sourcing, curation and creation from Recipe Guru, alongside ChannelSight’s ecommerce know-how and capabilities, we are offering a powerful end to end commerce enabled recipe ecosystem for brands and retailers that want to increase their digitally influenced sales online and off, positioning themselves as a destination for reliable recipe inspiration, knowhow and ingredients for their B2B and B2C customers. Putting the right recipe in front of the right person at the right time has always been a focus for Recipe Guru, and ChannelSight will further enhance this offering with clear and precise measurability of its commercial impact for brands.”

“We are excited to partner with ChannelSight to bring recipes from our global publishers to life. This partnership means we can jointly deliver a seamless end to end solution of the very best in global shoppable recipe content, with deep consumer insights and a more relevant, frictionless shopper experiences to our FMCG, kitchenware, grocery retail and connected kitchen brands”
