Mars Petcare is helping wholesalers capitalise on the continued growth of petcare with the launch of its ‘Dream Sixteen’ – a reinvigorated core range of must-stocks across its best-selling brands. Including three new price-marked packs (PMPs) from Pedigree® (£3.75), Sheba® (£4.75) and Cesar® (£4.75), the Dream Sixteen is set to help the wholesale and convenience channels capitalise on the increased footfall that many retailers have seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, with price-marks appealing to over half of shoppers who say they like this format.
Offering shoppers great value, Pedigree is the number one wet single serve brand, and its pouch format is growing at an impressive +33%. For those pet owners looking to trade up for, Cesar Trays are growing at +8%, while Sheba Pouches are seeing growth of +14%. As premium options, the well-known brands help to encourage people to spend a little more to treat their beloved pets. Having these available in a PMP helps retailers offer their customers great value from their local store.
Dave Warren, Trading Controller at Unitas Wholesale, comments: “Mars Petcare has provided a range of support for its Dream 16 range and to date, it has been an excellent success. Early indications demonstrate that the support provided – via our central platform, including our NPD package launch and trade adverts which have featured across multiple platforms, from in-store through to our club leaflet – has helped to drive key brands. This will in turn help in the growth of the category. Mars Petcare continues to activate within the wholesale sector and we know further activity is coming down the tracks in 2021 to continue driving the PMPs, which we will fully support.”
The new PMPs are available now and will be supported with ‘Dream Sixteen’ merchandising advice and planograms from Mars Petcare.
The prices on these PMPs are recommended retail prices (RRPs) only. Retail pricing is at the sole discretion of the retailer.
