With the custom views solution, Topco members and their store shoppers will be able to search and filter using standard and custom product attributes across 425,000 national brand and own brand products. Topco members can meet the increasing consumer demand for transparency by creating custom attributes based on their own shoppers’ priorities and interests. For example, if a retailer wishes to promote humanely sourced products across a store or region, they can use the platform to create a custom attribute for humane by identifying products that carry desired animal welfare and wildlife conscious designations. They can also use the tool to highlight products with more familiar attributes such as non-GMO or gluten-free.

“The attribute customization offering is truly ground-breaking in that it enables Topco members to more effectively guide shoppers to the products they want in the store and online,” said ‎Randy Skoda, President and CEO of ‎Topco. “Not only does the platform offer thousands of standard attributes, the data within it can be leveraged to customize attributes so Topco members can differentiate in their markets and provide information that is important to their shoppers.”
