The Company

RMG (Retail Media Group) is energetic, entrepreneurial and growth focused company. It is primarily comprised of two key lines of Business, Retail Media and AIR MILES INCENTIVES.

Retail Media was formed in February 2002, with a vision of bringing new cost-effective, mass reach advertising vehicles to market, thus creating new revenue opportunities from under-utilized media assets. The company began with the invention and launch of the AdBar, a simple yet highly effective captive audience medium which leverages the massive traffic at checkout in grocery stores.

Retail Media’s advertising business has grown to a network of over 500 stores across the country. AdBar has evolved into a major, mass medium delivering over 65 Million Impressions every 4 weeks across the country. The product selection has grown and now includes AdTray, AdCap, AdWrap, as well as substantial innovations around the original AdBar product through die cut and lenticular innovation.

In 2008, RMG added a new division by assuming management of the AIR MILES INCENTIVES Program on behalf of Loyalty One. AIR MILES INCENTIVES give companies the ability to grow their business by offering AIR MILES reward miles, with the flexibility to customize offers and programs specifically designed for their needs.

RMG continues to grow year after year, with sales having grown by nearly 200% over the past 5 years. RMG has been recognized by Profit 500 as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada for each of the past 5 years.
