Top Tip

To grow cider sales retailers must offer real choice and not me-too brands. You don't need duplications of mainstream brands - one or two are enough. Having some authentic and premium ciders is important, and so is reducing your 2 and 3-litre PET range. Making sure all your ciders are sold cold is crucial. Don't just have 10 lager brands in the chiller, make sure you have some space for cider.
