    Booker, the UK’s leading food and drink wholesaler, have launched their fifth edition of “Fit For The Future” guide for Londis and Budgens stores, identifying the best opportunities for retailers to grow sales, maximise profits and to help offset cost increases including the 10 per cent increase to the national living wage.

    The latest edition focuses on three key areas- optimal range, retail crime solutions and save £££ to invest and grow.

    Optimal range

    Booker has improved choice with the ranges it has to offer, through own label as well as branded products. The wholesaler has increased choice on price marked packs, fresh and frozen products with over 900 new products now available to Londis and Budgen’s retailers.

    Booker is ensuring they offer a convenience range that covers all need states, having great breadth and depth covering a “Good, Better and Best” approach for shoppers, as well as, different pack sizes to help retailers.

    The “Fit For The Future” guide also offers helpful tools such as planograms to utilise ranges.

    Retail Crime:

    As many retailers would have undoubtedly been affected by the growth of retail crime, Booker have included guidance, advice and solutions on helping with the topic in their latest feature.

    Save £££ to invest and grow:

    Booker have concluded the edition with a fantastic “Save £££ to invest and grow” model which can add up to £165,000 additional profit. The section features 22 different solutions to retailers through new ranges, exclusive deals or sales driving initiatives.

    Stewart Fenn, Sales Director at Booker Retail Partners says, “We hope retailers find our guide useful, this is one of our best yet! It really helps retailers identify new opportunities, increase footfall, sales and cash profit. If any retailers haven’t seen a copy yet, just visit Booker.co.uk or ask your local RDM.”
