M&M’S NEW LIMITED EDITION UNION JACK DESIGN

May 9th, 2012

To capitalise on the upcoming British summer, Mars has announced the launch of M&M’s Limited Edition Union Jack pack, containing only red, white and blue peanut M&M’s.

With Union Jack branded packaging, the Limited Edition packs aim to highlight Mars’ British Heritage, as the company prepares to celebrate 80 years of manufacturing in the UK.

M&M’s Union Jack packs will be available in-store from 20 May 2012 for a limited eight week period, in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the numerous other summer events.

Retailers are advised to stock up and utilise promotional point of sale display units and site in British themed areas to capitalise on the incremental sales opportunities created by a year of British pride and nostalgia.

The limited edition packaging, a montage of red, white and blue peanut M&M’s in Union Jack formation, also comes with a lower price point providing extra value for consumers and opportunities for retailers to drive extra sales.
