KP Snacks today announced the launch of its newly reformulated non-HFSS Tyrrells Lightly Sea Salted and non-HFSS Hula Hoops Puft range. The newly reformulated Hula Hoops Puft range includes tasty Salt & Vinegar, Salted and Grilled Beef flavours and the Tyrrells reformulation has targeted the premium brand’s number one SKU.
Both the reformulated Tyrrells flavour and the non-HFSS Hula Hoops Puft range are rolling out into stores this month, with Tyrrells available as non-HFSS in sharing, multipack and single bag formats. The roll-out of these non-HFSS products follows KP Snacks announcing its HFSS brand reformulation strategy earlier this year ahead of the introduction of new legislation in October.
The non-HFSS launches will be free from restrictions on location and promotion. Hula Hoops Puft and Tyrrells are perfectly positioned to support retailers in driving CSN sales as they adjust to the new regulations. Hula Hoops Puft is a consumer favourite, enjoying a loyal repeat rate of 60 per cent, and Tyrrells is a popular hand-cooked crisp brand with a 13.8 per cent market share of the premium snacking category.
The launch of the non-HFSS Hula Hoops Puft range is paired with a bold new packaging refresh, bringing an eye-catching design to these delicious and permissible snacks. The roll-out of the newly reformulated Puft range will be supported by a +£1.5m media campaign running from June to drive consumer awareness of the range and boost sales for retailers.
“We are delighted to be beginning the roll out of our non-HFSS products across our leading brands, with Tyrrells and Hula Hoops Puft just the latest,” said Matt Collins, Trading Director at KP Snacks. “We are committed to supporting retailers as we approach the introduction of HFSS legislation in October and reformulating and launching tasty non-HFSS products is just one way we’re doing this.”
