April Wild Bird Care sales volume in the GTN Bestsellers Top 50 charts were down by 8% on 2021 and by 9% on 2019 pre pandemic levels.
Year to date the sector is, however, 7% up on last year but 9% down on 2019 volumes. Perhaps the 3 million new gardeners are yet to pick up on feeding their garden birds as a great method of pest control as well as helping nature. Is there a promotion you can run to help them get the message?
Highlights of the week were:
Westland Peckish Xtra Goodness Energy Ball, Pack of 6 plus 6 Free continued at No 1 last week for volume sales.
Gardman Mealworm Pouch 100g was the highest chart climber, up 29 places to No 19.
Gardman Peanuts 2kg were the highest re-entry at No 25.
