Apple and pear retail education program 2023 (AP22000)

Key research provider: Strikeforce AMC

What's it all about?

This investment is tasked with assisting retailers to improve the instore presentation (appearance and quality) of apples and pears by increasing the store produce staff’s understanding of best practice merchandising principles.

There are two key components to the program:

  1. In-store quality assessments of the apple and pear displays, including evaluating against best practice merchandising principles to help improve the quality of displays and produce.

  2. Store staff education on the importance of well-merchandised product in line with best-practice guidelines to assist and grow sales outcomes.
