Mathew Bird, brand director at Premier Foods, said: “These non-HFSS pies contain 30% less sugar and real fruit pieces, making them ideal for driving penetration with health-conscious consumers. As they are HFSS compliant, Mr Kipling‘s Deliciously Good Hot Cross Pies can be promoted throughout the store for maximum visibility.”
The launch comes as 83% of shoppers say they want to try new Easter flavours and themes when the occasion arrives.
“Shoppers also look to brands that they know and love during key seasons and – with Mr Kipling ranked as one of the top Easter cake brands – the new Deliciously Good Hot Cross Pies are set to help retailers boost basket spend,” added Bird.
