2. ‘Must-have’ Cash Till Point assortment

As we see in other industries, the sales opportunity of the cash register is still undervalued, however we believe it has great potential. Seventy-five percent of cash-till purchase decisions are made in-store which makes this point of sale very impulse driven. The only planned cash-till purchases we have been able to identify are for refreshment products such as gum and mints. Consumers expect to find these products at the register, and plan to purchase them there. Perfetti van Melle has the perfect products to fill the refreshment segment at the cash register! Find out more on our ‘Must Have’ Cash register products on the next pages.

This years new products are perfect as a gift or can be shared with family and friends. Take a look at our new items, they will be a great addition to your assortment.
