New products are important for shoppers and they’re particularly important to the biscuit category. New products entice shoppers to the fixture whilst they shop in store for their regular purchase and as such can drive incremental sales.
In the last 5 years, Sweet Biscuits has grown by £51m through branded new products in the market which shows the interest consumers have in new flavours and formats within the category.
In 2020 new products played an important role for consumers as they looked for interesting items in their shop to treat their households throughout lockdowns which resulted in 11.4% of the Sweet Biscuits sales coming from new products.
