Hello and welcome to our third monthly issue.
Hello and welcome to our third monthly issue. This month we are going to roll out our features over a three week period. First up is an impactful and illuminating article by Lewis Allen of Portland Design.
It’s about the future of Travel Retail and the real threat that Amazon presents to airports, retailers and suppliers alike. A real wake up call to a (still) remarkably slow-moving industry – one which needs a dramatic rethink and restructure to meet the dynamics of today’s marketplace. It fully justifies its place as a standalone feature – written in a unique style which you now expect from trunblocked.com
Next week, we look at how the confectionery category needs to up its game as a result of the current war on sugar – a global movement which is unquestionably impacting sales. Some suppliers, like Nestle, have scientists working on developing a natural way of structuring chocolate, which may reduce the sugar content of chocolate bars by 40%. But will it be enough to stem the tide?
Also next week, we take a different angle on HNA and Richemont’s recent stakeholdings in Dufry. We look at the strategies of both companies and try and provide some real clues as to their long term objectives. The article is called: ‘Piling In for a Piece of Dufry’. Right now Dufry’s shareholders must surely be delighted!
