SYRACUSE, N.Y. – During June, American Dairy Association North East is partnering with 43 Redner’s Markets in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware, to cross merchandise Greek yogurt with pre-cut fruit as part of the “Summertime Snacking” campaign to increase yogurt sales.
“Cross-merchandising of dairy in other retail departments has shown increases in dairy sales of up to seven percent,” said ADA North East CEO John Chrisman. “This is just one example of how our retail team works closely with dairy case managers to expand sales opportunities by increasing consumer awareness of dairy’s nutritional benefits and versatility.”
Cross-merchandising is part of ADA North East’s Dairy Aisle Performance Program that is designed to help keep dairy aisles clean, cold and well-stocked. In 2021, our retail team secured more than 1,600 secondary placements of dairy items in nearly 700 stores.
For the Summertime Snacking campaign, ADA North East provided signage to direct shoppers to two kinds of Cabot Greek Yogurt that is strategically positioned in the fruit case, along with dairy recipe cards. Additionally, a QR code is printed on the signage that directs shoppers to AmericanDairy.com for more dairy ideas and recipes.
“We encourage our dairy farmers who shop at Redner’s to look for the campaign signage to see their dairy checkoff investment at work,” Chrisman added.
