PVM announces TR focus leading up to TFWA Cannes 2021
Leading up to the return of TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes, Perfetti Van Melle (PVM) has released details of its latest new product developments for category exclusives that are designed to grow its market share within kids gifting and refreshment.
PVM will showcase an expanded range of TR exclusives and display four brands; two recognized global brands, Chupa Chups and Mentos, as well as a couple of regional brands, Look-O-Look and Fruitella (stand P8, Mediterranean Village) at TFWA Cannes 2021.
“We are excited to have grown to offering four brands in our travel retail channel. I believe that we offer a house of brands that fits the needs of different travelers. Chupa Chups, number one lollipop in the world that creates fun for everybody; Mentos, world-famous candy that is hard on the outside, soft in the inside and perfect for sharing, alongside Mentos Gum and Mints, which provide the traveler with a delightful refreshing experience.
“Our Look-O-Look range makes the ordinary a bit extraordinary and makes customers step into a world full of fun and wonder; Fruittella, one of our most classic and authentic brands is known for its unique rich and juicy taste with natural flavors, natural colourings and real fruit juices, perfect for on-the-go.
“PVM is a relevant partner in the travel retail industry and it plans to remain so by continuously to focus on activities that drive footfall, drive conversion and provide the right assortment to increase basket size for its customers.
“We are here to make winning plans with partners – and this means having the right product portfolio, creating appealing and fun promotions and having best-in-class visibility tools” says Femke van Veen, Travel Retail Brand Manager, Perfetti Van Melle.
PVM is underscoring its commitment to kids gifting innovation, as well as on-the-go refreshment in TR with several new product launches, set to be unveiled in Cannes.
