Custom-designed packaging developed to grab shopper attention and increase sales in store.

Unique 1-pound packaging is made from 100% recycled materials and is fully recyclable. The clamshell includes embossing on the top to reinforce the Zespri brand and support Zespri’s global brand strategy to drive sustainability.

Zespri’s display will feature updated creative to reflect their new marketing campaign, and is designed to let the new 1-pound packaging be the hero.

To Drive Incremental Sales:

1) Build large, eye-catching displays. Retailer X featured SunGold™ Kiwifruit for a month which included a 4-week TPR + 3 display bins at front of store. This averaged a 200% $ sales lift over the month.

2) Multiple display locations increase sales. Try merchandising kiwi in and out of the produce section and see sales soar! Stacking cases by the check-out lanes catches unexpected shoppers on their way out!

3) Position kiwifruit near fruit with similar pricing strategies. According to a recent independent study, merchandising next to berries or grapes increases kiwifruit sales by 80%!

Bonus! In an independent study, shoppers reported that they rate their shopper experience higher when Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is on display. Increase the fresh perception of your store by building prominent displays!
