Focus On - Hot Beverages

Dear Retailer, The ‘Focus On’ guides by Plan for Profit are specifically designed for the independent retailer. Each guide contains expert product and category insight to help you make the most of opportunities in store and meet the needs of your customers. In this issue we’re discussing the packaged hot beverage category which is a sector undergoing enormous change. Tea, historically the favourite among Brits, has fallen behind coffee in terms of share. However, instead of just giving more space to coffee, retailers should focus on accommodating the growing demand for formats like coffee pods, driven by the rise in at-home coffee machines. In this issue, you’ll find an overview of the market’s latest trends, as well as a run-down of the must-stock products you need on your shelves to meet them. All copies of the Focus On Guides are available to review on the Plan for Profit website and app. Visit or search ‘Plan for Profit’ in your preferred app store.
