Plan for Profit Category Controller, Tracey Redfearn, explains further how the new edition of Plan for Profit help independent retailers in light of recent changes to consumer shopping habits “The increase in consumers working from home has driven the rise in in-home consumption across many categories, this trend has resulted in retailers increasing space to accommodate take home and larger family packs in the drinks & snacks fixtures, which is reflected in the updated guidance. The new guide also highlights the key opportunities within the pet care category in line with the increase in sales of pet treats and premium pet food.”
