UNIVEG UK is pleased to report record sales of Dried Fruit and Nuts for 2012, with sales up +35% on last year. The success is down to the commitment of a dedicated team and long-term investment placed in the category over the last 15 years. The substantial growth of the snacking fruit market, which has been one of the fastest growing sectors within fruit, has also contributed.
UNIVEG’s Dried Fruit account manager Christophe Bayard said “Again these figures prove the quality products and the category service we offer stimulate sales growth, in time giving our customers continued confidence in the future”
This sector of the UNIVEG business continues to grow strongly, with double digit growth year-on-year for the last five years. The introduction of a dedicated nut handling facility in 2009 has furthered our reputation as one of the leading dried fruit and nut providers in the UK.
As the festive season gets into full flow, sales of chestnuts, medjool dates and nuts will reach their peak, however these offerings are not just for Christmas… UNIVEG provide extensive ranges of dates, dried fruits and nuts all year round.
The New Year looks healthy too as consumer research shows shoppers are continuing to seek a healthy snacking option post Christmas.
