Unitas Wholesale has published its new Plan for Profit Licensed & Tobacco 2020/21 category guide, which highlights the core range for the licensed and tobacco categories.
New for 2021, the Plan for Profit wine range has been developed with several key suppliers using specific data for the symbols and independents channel.
Category Controller – Plan for Profit, Tracey Redfearn said: “The research that Unitas Wholesale has carried out with its supplier partners ensures that the new range caters to a variety of wine shoppers with differing in-store missions. We know that stocking the key brands is imperative for independent retailers and offering shoppers the key wine varietals will encourage them to trade up.”
Retailers will also find further insights on key categories including ‘lager & beer’, ‘cider’, ‘craft ale’, ‘spirits’ and the emerging ‘hard seltzers’ category to help them better understand and grow these areas in store. Price-marked and VAT exempt products are also highlighted throughout the guidance.
Printed copies of the Licensed & Tobacco category guide are available in selected Unitas Wholesale member depots now. It can also be accessed at planforprofit.co.uk and via the Plan for Profit app which is available to download on Google Play or the App Store.
