The supplier said Halloween is a key occasion among shoppers, and as a result, last, sales of salty snacks were 7% higher than the rest of the year.

“This demonstrates the importance of this occasion for retailers – ensuring they stock a selection of savoury snacking options in a range of formats,” said Will Robinson, portfolio lead for Walkers Snacks at PepsiCo.

“As a key occasion for retailers to tap into, we’re also driving further awareness of the promotion in-store, with a range of PoS materials and displays to create further visibility. They’re sure to help retailers drive savoury snack sales during the run-up to Halloween,” he added.
