Think year-round marketing, says UK's Richmond Ice Cream.
However, Richmond Ice Cream argued that perception of the slump was artificially high because the previous summer was exceptionally hot. In any case, the firm claims to be confident because its own key brands lost just 0.5% of sales during 2004's damp and relatively cool July and August.
Richmond declared that it will now concentrate on what it considers the key to profitable ice cream manufacturing: all-year sales. It suggests the best way to achieve this is to have a 12-month stock plan encompassing a winter to summer range alongside multi-packs for the winter and singles over the summer.
