Who we are
Who are The Retail Institute?
The Retail Institute is a specialist research team within Leeds Beckett University offering over 20 years’ worth of knowledge in the consumer goods and retail packaging supply chain.
We started our journey as a Faraday Centre; a governmentally funded research unit appointed with a purpose of helping industry innovate through application of academic methodologies. Throughout the years, our expertise in consumer behaviour in relation to products and retail services has grown and we have developed a number of unique techniques that assist and inform the strategic activities of our industry partners. Consumer focused innovation remains at the core of what we do.
