Clever ways to maximise sales of Tuna in your store

Understand the health-conscious shopper that you’re trying to appeal to and create an offering that would appeal to this type of consumer. For example stocking Fruit & Vegetables (if you don’t already!)

Merchandise these items next to complementary products, such as pasta and pasta sauces to cross-sell other products by giving your customers meal ideas. Why not add a meal-deal promotion to tie these products even closer together?

Introductory promotions on new lines, especially new additions to the market will encourage your shoppers to try something new.
