Tesco is about to roll out an innovative ‘one-touch’ banana merchandising solution.
The retailer has been trialling a special rolling unit in stores supplied by its Harlow depot.
Tim Lee, category manager for fruit, said the system was being expanded to two depots and would be used across all stores.
“It offers a one-touch solution to banana merchandising. The suppliers fill up the unit which is then delivered to the store and rolled out into the shops.”
He said the unit held more produce and therefore improved availability, as well as cutting down on work in store and damage to the fruit because it was handled less under the one-touch system.
