Ginsters Limited Edition SandwichesIt’s the New Year and 2016 has a lot to offer! The Retail Data Partnership (TRDP) have looked at possible meal deals for your store, and how you can get an edge of the supermarkets and your other competitors.

On Wednesday 13th January, Ginsters launches a new limited edition sandwich selection. The chicken Balti sandwich is 100% British roast Chicken in a Smoky Balti sauce with lightly spiced Cumin Yoghurt dressing and Spinach on malted bread. The Ham Hock and Piccalilli sandwich is 100% British Pork with Mayonnaise and mixed leaves on white bread.

Ginsters Sales and Marketing director Linda Evans said:

we have developed our new Limited Edition sandwiches to provide retailers with something different to offer their customers and stimulate interest and variety in the sandwich category.

These sandwiches should attract shoppers who are looking for something different to try this January.

3 months ago, Hovis launched a range of healthier sandwich alternatives – Hoves Good Inside Sandwich Thins and Hovis Good Inside Flatbreads.

Sophie Lyons, marketing manager at Hovis says:

Sandwich thins have become a key alternative for bread occasions and now the fastest growing sandwich segment with an impressive growth of 54%. Flatbreads are also bucking the trend within supermarket ready-meal sandwiches, and we are confident that we can offer consumers are healthier alternative without compromising on taste, texture or fulfilment. Hovis is renowned for goodness and innovation and with the introduction of both products we aim to not just add value to shoppers’ lifestyles but also for retailer’s sales’, (Forecourt Trader, 2015).

Create additional enjoyment for your customers, merchandise Hovis Sandwich Thins and Flatbreads alongside branded sandwich selections to offer choice as well as a healthier alternative. Why not also place sandwich fillers, such as Ham, Turkey, Coronation Chicken and Cheese in the fridge next to your pre-made sandwiches and place your bread products nearby. This gives your customers more lunch and pack-up options, driving category sales without the need for new lines.
