Dassant Baking Mixes Reveals the Secrets of Success

NorthWest Specialty Baking Mixes offers retailers the secrets to a customized seasonal Dassant baking mix program that will maximize profits during the busiest part of the year.

Portland, OR, March 23, 2012 --(PR.com)-- A seasonal baking mix program provides the ideal opportunity for food retailers to maximize profits. NorthWest Specialty Baking Mixes offers retailers a strategic approach to what baking mix flavors to offer and when. These seasonal in-and-out programs are designed specifically to increase retailer profits, while fulfilling increasing consumer demand for premium baking mixes.

Baking is a loving way of bringing families and friends together to reflect on fond memories and celebrate, especially during the holiday season. By promoting a seasonal baking mix selection, retailers will take advantage of the peak time of demand (September-December) and will capture the category’s greatest profit potential while providing customers with time-honored traditions.

“Shoppers seek out seasonal and specialty items that are memorable, make them feel good, and are unique, much like an exciting treasure hunt. For stores, the secret to appealing to these shoppers is to offer easy-to-make baking mixes in unique yet familiar flavors during the peak baking season only,” explains NorthWest Specialty Baking Mixes’ Senior Vice President Diana Michelsen.

Retailers can capitalize on that consumer excitement by prominently featuring strategic seasonal displays in their stores. NorthWest Specialty Baking Mixes helps retailers build their strategy by offering optional point-of-purchase or shipper floor displays.

Dassant seasonal programs are fully customizable to retailers’ needs, following a carefully thought out, tailored strategy. The company’s proven track record illustrates their expertise in seasonal programs and now they are revealing their secrets for the first time. Here are five never-before-told company secrets that have led to their success:
