German consumers have become more demanding: food should not only be delicious, but also fresh, healthy, sustainably produced and presented in an appealing way. A new challenge for retailers - and at the same time an opportunity for them to distinguish themselves with the placement of healthy, nutrient-rich foods.
To help the marketers with this challenge, Zespri's six-week summer of 2017 study tested the sales impact of an additional display of SunGold and Green kiwis in various sales zones. The study also compared the effects with the impact of other measures, such as flyer advertising, and examined the effect of placements on the margins.
- The study showed that Zespri kiwis are well suited as impulse takeaway articles: For example, additional displays increased kiwi sales in a test market by up to 117%.
- This effect surpassed the effects of flyer advertising.
- In addition, a higher margin for trading was achieved with these additional placements.
