Trade Update

Spiced Egg & Cucumber Sandwiches

Total sales excluding fuel were up 3.4 per cent on last year thanks in part to the 25 per cent off all wine and champagne (three bottles or more) promotion. The warm bank holiday also drove sales of cider and beer, helping the overall beers, wines and spirits category rise 21.6 per cent year on year.

Sunshine at the start of the week contributed to sales of children's lollies increasing by 16 per cent, sun cream by 27 per cent and sandwiches by 5 per cent.

Celeriac rice also performed well after Waitrose became the first supermarket to introduce the vegetable as a carbohydrate alternative for risottos or curries.
