Tetley is to modernise its decaf tea by changing the traditional cellophane wrapped carton packaging that it has always had to its modern soft pack packaging.
The new packs of Tetley decaf will clearly display the tea type and the pack size and hope to achieve visual impact on shelf whilst taking up less space.
The new packs will begin to roll out from this month and will be available in shelf ready trays of 2×6 for Tetley decaf 40s and 80s and 2x1x3 for Tetley decaf 160s.
For the convenience sector Tetley decaf 80s will also be available in a 1×6 tray.
Simon Attfield, Customer Marketing Controller for Tata Global Beverages said:
“We are making a significant investment in our brands this year so it is the right time to make this change.
“The new pack design will bring Tetley decaf in line with the other every day teas in our range that were given a new look in July.
Research shows that the soft packs have proven popular with consumers.
Being re-sealable they are preferred by many for keeping the tea fresher for longer and they eliminate the collection of tea dust common with carton packs.
The market for decaf teas remains strong showing.
For the last seven years Tetley has dominated the decaf sector and currently has 34% value share, more than 10% ahead of its nearest competitor.
