Why the Table Sauces category is important in Convenience

How to shake up your Table Sauces

Quickly check the affluence of your customers to ensure you are meeting their needs and are stocking the right brands and SKU’s. Simply visit Check My Area to double check your customers’ affluence and check your range.

Advice for Low Affluence Stores

  • In lower affluence areas, shoppers tend to buy more Brown Sauce and Salad Cream but a full range of products should still be on offer.  Focus ranges on core flavours / variants
  • Should space permit, add Retailer Choice across the different segments to demonstrate value

Advice for High Affluence Stores

  • Look to offer a wider variety of Table Sauces and dressings with higher price points, premium brands and local products
  • Consider adding more experimental food trend flavours/variants

We update the store regularly to be sure it continues to meet our customers’ needs - this includes reviewing the range on offer, ensuring it is well merchandised so it is easy to shop and ensuring we have up-to-date POS.
