Yogurt “type” and flavor preferences vary by Foodservice channel. The following planograms provide channel-specific recommendations based on national retail and foodservice yogurt sales data.
- Most of your set should be “core” SKUs that include the top-selling traditional and Greek products. Capture rapidly growing retail trends by allotting 20-25% of shelf space to emerging yogurt types. If swap outs are needed, pull from Greek or traditional light as these formats are declining the fastest in retail.
- Duplicate flavors no more than 2x across types to maximize the flavor variety of the set.
- On the shelf cups should be organized by type, then brand, then flavor (based on consumer shopping behavior).
- Freshly made parfaits are a way to leverage “snacking form” trends with a yogurt offering that commands a premium price and margin.
