One Stop expands single pick to maximise fresh opportunity

26 September 2014

One Stop Stores is set to expand its single pick facility across fresh fruit and vegetables, following ringing endorsements from its franchise stores.

One Stop introduced single pick across 27 fresh meat lines towards the end of August, with 26 ready meals and desserts being added last week. A further 44 products within the produce category will be available to order at the end of this week, appearing in-store from Monday 29 September.

The launch of single pick within One Stop’s chilled range has initially been focused on the key growth categories of fresh meat, ready meals and desserts, as well as the fruit and vegetable ranges which are so vital to a convenience offering. Allowing retailers to order single quantities of respective items will greatly reduce food waste and associated costs, as well as benefiting the consumer via a greater choice and fresher product. Further lines are planned to be introduced to the scheme over the coming months.

The initiative has been introduced across the entire One Stop estate, incorporating both company-owned and franchise stores and Franchise Director Andrew King revealed:

“It’s been a really popular change and our franchisees are delighted! It’s also been seamlessly integrated within our auto-replenishment ordering system, so our franchisees have full confidence in their order quantities. Giving retailers the opportunity to order single products rather than full cases will allow them to grow sales in these developing areas, without incurring high known losses. It takes a lot of the risk away and will further strengthen the chilled offering, which is performing strongly since its re-launch earlier this year.”
