Herb and Spice Stockists – Case Studies

Trade

Seasoned Pioneers are based on the Wirral, a peninsula bordered by the River Dee on one side and the River Mersey on the other.

Wirral is a mixture of coast, countryside, rural villages, industry and towns. The area is renowned for good dining and shopping, with an abundance of fine restaurants, cafes, farm shops, garden centres, delicatessens and markets. Some retailers place a particular emphasis on sourcing locally produced food and drink.

Several fine food retailers in the area have chosen to buy wholesale herbs and spices from us and utilise our free of charge merchandising options to display Seasoned Pioneers logo and products.

Our phenomenal range of approximately 300 herbs, spices, spice blends and specialist ingredients are supplied  in our signature resealable foil pouches.  When displayed on a spice rack, they create an eye-catching and colourful display which customers love to browse.

The spice rack and header board with shelf-talkers describing the products are offered at no cost to any business wishing to order trade spices from us.      

For retailers with limited space or for seasonal products, we can supply trade herbs, spices or spice blends on clipstrips which can easily be hung on display units, pillars, by the check-out or in any other redundant space.

Examples of this are clipstrips of trade spice blends for barbecuing, such as Caribbean Jerk Rub displayed next to a meat counter, Mulled Wine Spices alongside the wine selection, Mixed Pudding Spices with baking ingredients and so on.           

Our Gourmet Cooking Sauces are ambient and therefore can be displayed anywhere within a food retail premises. However one local farm shop, Claremont Farm, have found that they achieve good sales by displaying them in their refrigerated cabinets alongside the meat and poultry that complement our cooking sauces. This is a great way of suggesting meal ideas to customers and inspiring them in how to use your goods.

 

 

 

 

 

Seasonal products such as Christmas food and drink offer great opportunities to maximise sales by creating enticing displays of produce.

Trade spices can be presented not only as essential Christmas ingredients, but also as stocking fillers and gifts:

We hope that these case studies of some of our local fine food retailers will instil a desire to incorporate our products into your own range of herbs, spices, seasonings and specialist ingredients, joining those of us who already work towards ‘Helping Adventurous Souls Achieve Culinary Inspiration’!

For any further information, please get in touch, we will be delighted to hear from you and help you set up as a trade spice supplier.
