Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Shopping Aloud

Girls Aloud helped launch Nestlé Confectionery's Kit Kat Fashion Break on-pack promotion last month. It gives consumers the chance to win £1,000 cash as well as shopping vouchers.

Sporting chance

Britvic and PepsiCo have launched a new TV and press campaign for Gatorade. It will encourage shoppers to get active with its 'We Love Sweat' campaign.

New Buttons design

Cadbury has introduced a new pack design for its Dairy Milk Buttons. It is also investing in a 'Buttons Fun on the Farm' campaign which offers free family events nationwide.

Vimto mixes it up

Vimto launches a new campaign this month built around its mixed fruit taste. The £5m relaunch has the strapline "Seriously Mixed Up Fruit" and targets the teen audience.

An irreverant view from the network

An interesting thing happened the other day. We won a court case. To be honest I wasn't surprised. This was one of those 'slips, trips and falls' claims beloved of those wonderful, ambulance-chasing solicitors.

Full of the joys of spring

Spring Petroleum has become the first retailer to install Dresser Wayne's Global Ovation fuel pump.

One step ahead

The Ladder Association has published a book to promote safety and best practice. The free 12-page A5 publication is intended to be a handy reference for use in the office or on site. The LadderBook champions the ladder as an invaluable piece of workplace equipment, taking as its theme: 'if it's right to use a ladder, use the right ladder and get trained to use it safely'.

In Virgin territory

Moto Hospitality has signed up with Virgin Radio to provide its 48 outlets across the UK with a dedicated radio stream.
