It’s vital to plan for seasonal occasions in store and with the string of seasonal events in Spring, our latest offering has got you covered to help stock the shelves with the finest quality gifts.

 

As a fine food distributor supplying independent retailers including farm shops, convenience stores and delis, we have a range of products to delight your customers for next Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and of course Easter.

 

These occasions are where chocolate and gifting products really come in to their own. 

 

Innovation paired with key seasonal selling periods keeps the category growing and we certainly have an innovative selection of gifts on offer!

 

Last Spring, one of our best newcomers was Gwynedd Confectioners - manufacturers, designers and suppliers of exclusive confectionery gifts.  The extensive range of Easter animal chocolates is sure to make some sweet sales next Spring too and make for great Easter displays both on the shop floor or at the till front.

 

So what’s new for 2018?

 

The unique range of Belgian chocolates and truffles from Classic Wheels; including the super giant 2kg milk chocolate bar and chocolate gift tins of chocolate hearts, cars or seashells make ideal presents.

 

Also added to this year’s offering are Cocoba’s Valentine’s chocolate hampers for chocolate lovers.  Cocoba also has an impressive range of Easter eggs and animal chocolates, its famous Cocoba Cocoa Pods and best-selling Hot Chocolate Spoon. 

 

Royal Horticultural Society’s range of distinctive sweet and chocolate gifts is also new and offers something different again.  Perfect for garden and nature lovers, the range includes plastic plant pots filled with sweets, chocolate wellington boots and bugs, nougat bars in three delightful flavours and boxes of chocolate flowers and chocolate creams.

 

Of course while chocolate is key to provide consumers with the ideal gift, traditional seasonal products are also important.  As well as chocolate eggs, the traditional Simnel Cake is still a must-stock for Easter.

 

Our Spring 2018 offering includes these traditional items including the range of Simnel Cakes from The Simply Delicious Cake Co. – now with new packaging.  The option of the Gluten Free Simnel Cakes should be a must-stock this Easter with the rising number of consumers buying gluten free products for lifestyle reasons, not just for medical dietary purposes. 

 

Some other previous top sellers on offer again this year are Beech’s Fine Chocolates and truffles; and Holdsworth’s luxurious chocolate gift boxes.

 

Spring is a time to really make use of in-store displays and with our range of fine quality products all with unique and eye catching packaging, it’s even easier.  We’d love to see your latest in-store displays so why not send us a picture via Twitter @cotswoldfayre or by getting in touch with the details below?
