House of Sarunds has become an approved supplier to the Nisa membership giving 2,500 retailers access to the largest collection of competitively priced premium Belgian chocolate and confectionery that is currently available from a single UK source. Many brands or product lines are exclusive to both Sarunds and to the independent channel and not available in the supermarkets.
Stand out products include 22 exclusive items from Guylian, one of the UK’s most popular Belgian chocolate brands Guylian is perhaps best known for its Belgian chocolate sea shells and sea horses and although Sarunds stocks them too, it has secured exclusivity on a whole range of Guylian’s other innovative new products such as the fabulous new waffle cones which are a great tasting novelty at just 69p RRP. Another great seller is the exclusive ‘no added sugar’ wrapped Guylian Belgian milk and dark chocolate bars and a dark chocolate bar with cranberry 100g RRP £2.49, plus Guylian Belgian milk chocolate raisins and Guylian dark chocolate blueberries and cranberries in 150g pouches RRP £3.00.
So by working with Sarunds, retailers can benefit from the pulling power of the Guylian brand with an impressive range that is not available elsewhere. All Guylian products are halal certified and suitable for vegetarians.
Sarunds also offers an incredible range of competitively priced, high quality Belgian boxed chocolates. These include the 250g Maison Pierre ribboned gift boxes RRP £5.99, 200g boxes of Belgid’Or Cocoa dusted truffles RRP £2.99, 200g boxes of Cupido flaked truffles RRP £2.49, 200g Excelcium gold selection gift box RRP £2.29, premium 100g Maitre Truffout milk chocolate bars with hazelnut, caramel and strawberry filling RRP £1.39, 175g boxes of Bianca flavoured cocoa dusted truffles RRP £2.49
Feedback from the Nisa membership has been extremely positive, especially regarding Sarunds’ boxed chocolates offer. Latesh Patel from ‘Loco’ in Bromley said “Sarunds offers us something completely different which our customers have bought in to immediately. This has shown in how fast the products from our first order have sold, especially the 250g Maison Pierre ballotins as I only have 3 left from 12 so need to re-order quickly! I will also be placing a separate Christmas order next week to ensure we have a nice range of gifts for the festive season”. Nidesh Amin from Village Store, Beckenham Lane said “It is great to be able to purchase so many quality chocolates from one supplier.
Everything we have ordered has sold well and there is nothing sitting on the shelves. All year round products are delivered next day and we are very happy with the service levels offered by Sarunds.”
