Summer Foods Still Proving Popular At Waitrose

UK retailer Waitrose has reported that summer foods are continuing to prove popular with shoppers, with items such as ice and soft fruit up 34% and 10%, respectively, in the past week.

Haloumi sales rose by 32%, while avocados also increased, by 32%.

Total division sales (excluding fuel) were down by 0.2% compared to the same week last year, which has been attributed to the later occurrence of Waitrose’s Half-Price Event 2015.
