Dairy products, although present on store shelves regardless of the season, are also subject to seasonality. Ready-made ice coffees are becoming more and more popular, especially now in the summer. Therefore, it is worth displaying them, even in the checkout area, where we reach for impulse products.
Cheeses, creams and yoghurts are products that end up in customers' basket all year round. Apart from seasonal products, the aforementioned coffees, but also sour milk or cold soups, competition among dairy producers is constantly growing.
Whether you have products from multiple manufacturers or just a local supplier, proper storage and display of your dairy products is the key to gain more sales.
Storage of dairy products - general rules
In the case of dairy products that have a relatively short shelf life, it is very important to maintain the continuity of the cold chain. Store employees should constantly monitor the temperature at which the products are stored (from the time of delivery, when we check the temperature in the delivery truck, until it is sold).
It is also worth reminding about FIFO, the principle according to which products that arrived earlier should be delivered to the store first. Of course, you should absolutely monitor all deliveries and plan to display the assortment according to the expiry date of the product, indicated on the packaging.
Various devices can be used to display dairy products in the store. The most important thing is that they provide appropriate conditions for specific groups of the assortment, including a sufficiently low temperature. Due to the method of sale (self-service or with service), dairy products can be displayed in:
