Waitrose trade update

Waitrose 1 Badoz Vacherin du Haut-Doubs Cheese

Total sales, excluding fuel, were 0.6 per cent higher than the same week last year. 

After our success at the International Cheese Awards where Waitrose cheeses claimed 24 gold medals, speciality cheese sales were up 5.6 per cent. Butters and spreads also had a strong week with sales up 17 per cent.

Changeable weather helped contribute to an uplift in sales of hot pies and roast poultry which rose by 24 per cent and seven per cent respectively. Convenient options were also on the menu with Chinese ready meals up 30 per cent and Indian ready meal sales growing by 25 per cent.
