    The latest c-channel performance figures are in

    Wholesale and convenience data experts TWC Group, reports the latest sales performance for 13 weeks to 9 July 2023, from its SmartView Convenience market read for independent convenience retail and wholesaler-supplied symbol stores in GB.

    The latest data reports a strong value performance for impulse categories, including soft drinks (+15.7 per cent), confectionery (+19.8 per cent) and crisps, snacks & nuts (+21.0 per cent). Total sales through the channel grew +5.0 per cent in value terms for the 13 w/e 09 July 2023.

    “Despite very tough trading conditions, value sales through the independent convenience channel increased by five per cent in the last 13 weeks, driven by strong growth across impulse categories, with a particularly stellar performance in the last four weeks due to the warm weather,” said Tom Fender, Development Director at TWC.

    “Tobacco sales declined three per cent but the category remains a huge footfall driver and sales of vape continue to expand rapidly. We’ve also seen modest growth coming through beers and lagers despite continued promotional activity in the supermarkets.”
