Carlsberg-Tetley is planning to boost its business through the independent sector with price marked cans. The latest in a series of price marking activities features 500ml cans of Tetley Smoothflow at 89p and Carlsberg Lager at 75p. These will be available throughout May. This is designed to help the retailers compete with the multiple sector. The brewer has already used the device on some of its key brands including Skol (65p), Castlemaine XXXX (75p) and Carlsberg Export (89p) this year. C-T is hoping to benefit from more impulse buying and from increasing its share of the sector's ale market, worth £39m. A spokesman said pricemarking is popular with the independents even though it reduces margins because they sell more volume. {{DRINKS }}
