Following on from the 50p price marked packs (PMP) for top countlines last year, Kraft Foods is launching packs for Cadbury Picnic and Cadbury Chocos.
This extension of PMPs for the chocolate brand comes as new research shows that they not only improve the price image of a convenience store in the eye of the consumer but also that the majority of retailers believe they sell faster than standard packs, as well as helping to drive footfall to stores.
The on-pack promotion will see the packs marked at 50p, available from the 1 August.
Protecting retailer margins while running PMPs is important to Kraft Foods and the business works with its customers to ensure that retailers can offer competitive prices on the most popular chocolate countlines.
PMPs are used to help improve the rate of sale, for example, Kraft Foods has seen a 9% increase in Rate of Sale for Cadbury Daily Milk 49g when 50p PMP’s have been in store, since April last year.
Other countlines which launched 50p PMPs last year were Cadbury Twirl, Cadbury Crunchie and Cadbury Wispa.
The manufacturer hopes a similar sales boost for retailers will occur with the two new additions to the range.
Susan Nash, Trade Communications Manager at Kraft Foods, said:
“The latest price marked pack promotion running on a further two Cadbury branded countlines will ensure that retailers can continue to make the most of their confectionery sales, especially as research shows that almost half of shoppers say that a price marked pack would encourage them to switch brands.”
