UK: Carlsberg sales up 240% during World Cup
“According to ACNielsen Scantrack data for the four weeks to 15 June, the brand secured the number one spot in standard lagers in multiple grocers. Sceptics suggested that promotional activity around the World Cup would not see big returns, however Carlsberg has proved them wrong,” the company said.
Carlsberg said that during the world Cup World, total lager sales increased by 20%, with Carlsberg gaining a 30% share of the standard lager market, ahead of Carling with 22%, Fosters with 14% and Heineken with 6%.
The brand also reported growth of 240% in the period compared to the same four weeks last year, while Carlsberg Export saw volume growth of 125% during the same period. “The World Cup numbers are fantastic and follow on from the successful relaunch of both brands earlier this year.” said Doug Clydesdales, managing director, Brands & Sales, Carlsberg-Tetley. “As a consequence we are seeing a real step-change in our business and the growth in the big supermarket chains is a reflection of this overall performance.”
