Big Bear rolls out Fox’s Glacier lines in shelf ready cases
03 May, 2019

Big Bear Confectionery will roll out single facing shelf-ready cases across its core Fox’s Glacier lines to retailers nationwide this month, following a successful trial with the Co-op.

The new single facing shelf-ready cases offer an alternative to hanging confectionery and are designed to maximise space where it’s at a premium, make it easier for retailers to manage stock and minimise time taken to re-stock.

Andrew Ovens, marketing manager at Big Bear Confectionery, explained: “As our centenary year, 2018 was a great year for the Fox’s Glacier brand, with sales up 7% year-on-year and brand awareness standing at 91%.

“However, talking to independents and symbol groups, it’s clear the need to balance space and range has never been so acute. There’s a definite move towards retailers looking for alternatives to hanging bags, so having successfully trialled single facing shelf-ready cases with the Co-op estate, we’re now rolling out the new single facing cases of 10 to stores nationwide.”

Amid all the political turmoil, do you feel as prepared as you can be for EU exit on October 31, deal or no deal?
