 CHICAGO, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Nielsen Marketing Research has signed an agreement with Mars, Inc. to provide the packaged goods manufacturer with all outlet marketing information, decision support services and analysis for all Mars, Inc. units, including new agreements in Canada, Mexico and with Uncle Ben's.
 The Mars contract comes on the heels of major recent agreements Nielsen has reached with such packaged goods leaders as Kraft General Foods, Nestle USA and Quaker Oats.
 "Mars is a sophisticated marketer, and we're very pleased to be recognized as a member of their decision-making team," said John H. Costello, president and chief operating officer, Nielsen Marketing Research-USA.

 Nielsen will provide Mars, Inc. with a number of innovative data applications and application deliverables, including Nielsen Workstation, a Windows-based application system that allows users to integrate and evaluate retail information from a variety of sources to assist in on-line decision-making.
 "Nielsen's ability to service Mars in Mexico and Canada, as well as the future potentiality of covering Europe, was one of the determining factors in helping us reach our decision," said Jerry L. Esposito, director-commercial, Mars, Inc. The agreement is a major expansion of the successful relationship the two firms have enjoyed since 1988. Mars, Inc. brands serviced by Nielsen will include Mars Snack Foods, Kal-Kan, Dove, Uncle Ben's, Effem and Master Foods Interamerica (Mexico).
