“The Cadbury Wispa Biscuits’ launch will build on Burton’s highly successful track record of introducing some of the UK’s best-loved brands into the biscuit category,” says David Costello, Burton’s Biscuit Company’s head of customer category mManagement.
“The Cadbury Wispa brand has already been a major success across numerous new formats, including hot chocolate and chilled desserts. It will bring excitement and fun into the biscuit aisle, offering consumers a sumptuous eating experience.”
Merchandised in shelf-ready cases of 12, the 124g packs launch in stores nationwide at the end of July with an rrp of £1.79.
In addition to a £250,000 through the line campaign, the launch will be supported by heavyweight in-store activity, including a comprehensive range of POS and merchandising to attract shoppers.
The Cadbury Wispa Biscuits’ launch follows the success of this year’s limited-edition Cadbury Creme Egg Biscuits which the company claims generated £2.7 million worth of sales in just 16 weeks (January to April 2014, Nielsen MAT data).
