David Costello, head of category & shopper management at Burton’s Biscuit Company, says: “Halloween is the UK’s fourth largest event, appealing to more than 1 in 5 households and representing a huge profit opportunity for retailers.
“Research has shown that over two thirds of shoppers spend an average of £1 per pack on Halloween products (Kantar Worldpanel 6 w/e 1 Nov 2015), making low entry price points really important. With the Cadbury Biscuits Halloween line-up we’re meeting this need, bringing incremental shoppers to seasonal sweet biscuits, and working with retailers to drive shoppers to the fixture ahead of the Christmas period.”
