A proven driver of footfall and spend in travel retail, the confectionery & fine food category has long been a staple of the retail offer across all travel environments. Now more than ever, the sector has a key role to play as international travellers return in significant numbers. It meets a number of key traveller needs - gifting, self-treating, convenience and personalization, to name but a few – and also helps retailers generate the theatre and experiences that travellers increasingly demand.
But how will the confectionery & fine food sector meet the challenges that lie ahead? Supply chains are being tested, pricing is under pressure, and concerns over sustainability are driving customer preferences.
To explore these and other topics, TFWA is staging two 90-minute webinars on Confectionery in Travel Retail on December 13 and 14 at 10h30 CET. And although the confectionery sector will remain at the heart of the discussions, the sessions will address the market in its entirety, including food, sweets and also health supplements that are an important part of the product mix in some regions.
Full details of the programme will be published shortly; keep an eye on TFWA.com for updates.
