P&H aims to support retailers with guide to best-selling products

08 November 2017

As part of its ongoing efforts to support retailers, NFSP partner supplier, wholesaler Palmer and Harvey, has announced the latest release of its Guide to Best Selling Products.

Having landed with more than 3,000 P&H retailers on Monday (November 6), the guide provides in-depth analysis on the latest trends and best-selling products across the convenience and forecourt sectors, to help retailers ensure they are stocking the right products in their core range.

The guide contains all the latest information on best-selling products broken down by category and sub-category, alongside top tips on merchandising and key trends seen within the convenience and forecourt sectors.

The  guide has been put together using a combination of SalesOut data, P&H shipment data and IRI EPoS data, as well as valuable insight from P&H category experts. This ensures that the volume rankings supplied in the Guide to Best Selling Products are a true reflection of the last six months’ sales across convenience and forecourt retail.

Now in its sixth iteration, the guide highlights notable changes to consumer behaviour. For example, the latest edition features an overview of the growing consumer preference for high protein content foods, and the sales opportunity this presents for independent retailers.

Also reflective of growing consumer trends it appears the British love affair with gin isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Gordon’s Gin jumped three places, from being the sixth most popular spirit in Issue 5, to the third most popular spirit in the latest issue.

Rory Brick, Channel Development Director at P&H, commented: “Although we are seeing industry experts forecasting for growth in the convenience sector, it has never been more important for retailers to stock the right core range.

“The Guide to Best Selling Products is a great tool for helping retailers gain insight into key categories, and understand which products are driving footfall and satisfying the demand of their customers.”

Guide to Best Selling Products is delivered to all independent and mini-multiple retailers, and is also available to view via the retailer zone on the P&H corporate website.
