PepsiCo has announced it will be launching its Walkers community fund competition for the second year running, giving 10 retailers the chance to win £2,000 each to support their local neighbourhood.

To enter, retailers have until 5 April to purchase two cases of any 48-82g £1.25 price-marked pack (PMP) or Kurkure 80g £1 PMP.

They can also text ‘COMMUNITY’, their full name, their business name and postcode to 85100.

Mike Chapman, head of wholesale at PepsiCo, said: “Convenience stores have always played an important role within their local communities but never has this been more the case than during the last few years. We know that 73% of independent retailers have engaged in some form of community activity in the past year alone and we expect this to continue. With this competition we hope to help retailers give back to their communities with a significant prize up for grabs.

“Sharing RRP PMPs account for 49.1% of crisps and snacks value sales within the crisps, snacks and nuts segment, and represent an important driver of savoury snacking sales within the convenience channel. By focusing the competition on RRP PMPs, we’re helping retailers to drive their snacking sales further.”

Retailer John Wilson of The Corner Shop in Cellardyke, Fife, who was a winner of last year’s competition, used his money to restore a local tidal pool.
