    VANCOUVER, BC, April 2, 2024, Fobi AI Inc. (FOBI:TSXV) (FOBIF:OTCQB) (the "Company" or "Fobi"), an industry leader in harnessing AI and data intelligence to enable digital transformation, is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a data license agreement with Asahi Canada, a subsidiary of Asahi Europe and International. Their portfolio, renowned globally, boasts premium brands including, Asahi Super Dry, Grolsch, Peroni, Pilsner Urquell, and more.

    Rob Anson, CEO of Fobi AI, emphasizes: “Operators don't need more data; they require plug-and-play tools like the Fobi Data Exchange. This empowers them to leverage and automate their data effectively, unlocking its full potential for monetization. The ability to make real-time decisions on the fly is unprecedented in the beverage alcohol industry. Fobi AI takes great pride in collaborating with a global beverage company that has a long-standing history of over 100 years in operations."


    Under this agreement, Fobi will provide Asahi Canada with a fully automated data intelligence tool, offering real-time analytics, insights, and forecasting capabilities. This data will enhance visibility into the competitive landscape, enabling the company to make informed decisions that drive profitability and foster continued growth.

    The beer industry continues to face increasing competition from alternative beverage categories such as wine & ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages. In response to this challenge, brands and manufacturers must make faster, smarter, data-driven decisions to identify gaps and opportunities in their business landscape. Fobi’s fully automated dashboard offers real-time insights down to the city and region level, allowing brands to pinpoint market gaps and uncover new opportunities. This empowers them to optimize resource allocation and marketing strategies, ultimately maximizing profitability.

    Fobi’s custom dashboard will enable Asahi Canada to build detailed customer profiles based on demographics, purchase history, and spending patterns. This allows a deeper understanding of consumer behavior and market trends across both retail and industry levels. By leveraging Fobi’s actionable insights, Asahi Canada can make faster, smarter, data-driven decisions to optimize operational strategies and ensure ongoing success in today’s dynamic beverage industry.

    Colin Foley, Director of Field Sales at Asahi Canada, states: "We're super excited to be partnering with Fobi to power our analytics and insights in the private channel in Western Canada. Gaining additional visibility into the competitive marketplace in the private channel will be instrumental to expanding our business in Western Canada and driving growth as we move forward. We're super excited to be working with Fobi as we continue to build and grow profitable and mutually beneficial partnerships with our retail partners in BC."

    David Nicholls, VP of Liquor Beverage at Fobi AI, states: “Many breweries have been operating in the dark with very little light to guide their way on roads that are becoming increasingly challenging. By providing Asahi Super Dry with a fully automated analytics platform, they will have the power to make stronger data-driven decisions and the ability to act in real time. This winning combination will support their growth ambitions and success in Canada.”
