“Having successfully trialled and launched It’s Fresh! on Stone Fruit with other retailers in 2013, we presented Morrison’s with the potential benefits to their business. We conducted robust commercial trials during the 2014 summer season resulting in markdown reductions and sales increases. This has led to a full roll out on all RTE Nectarines and Peaches.”
