Müller is targeting growth in the wholesale and convenience channels with the introduction of price marked packs on its Müller Corner yogurt pots.
The dairy company has optimised Müller Corner for the convenience and wholesale sector, with stacked packs which take up less room on shelves and reduce in store complexity.
It enables the dairy brand to continue tapping into increased demand for Müller Corner yogurts, building on a strong performance in 2020 which saw more sold during the first lockdown than in any period in the last three years.
The £1 price marked pack range, which is available from 1 April, consists of a two pack of Müller Corner Strawberry and a two pack of Müller Corner Vanilla Chocolate Balls.
The company’s FRijj brand, which is made using milk from British farms and now comes in a fully recyclable bottle and a long lasting ambient recipe, is also available in £1 price marked packs.
The move is in line with Müller’s strategy to add further inspiration to its core range of branded products, while targeting new and growing channels.
Jon Piper, commercial director at Müller Yogurt & Desserts said: “We think there’s a big opportunity for the number one brand in the yogurt category to thrive within the convenience and wholesale sector.
“As we continue to grow and add further inspiration to the category, we need to create products that not only add taste to life and meet the needs of shoppers, but also multiple channels.
“In 2019 the Müller Corner range was +1.3% on volume and last year it was +5.6%. That’s because we have invested heavily in Müller Corner, shoppers value trusted brands, people are eating at home more and it’s a sub-sector with lots of growth potential.
“With our optimised price mark offering, we’re confident and excited in our approach, and believe this will deliver real value to our retailers within the wholesale and convenience channel.”
