Thorntons into 19 World Duty Free outlets

By Administrator |

Following a successful six-week trial in November of last year, WDF has now introduced a range of five Thorntons' confectionery products into 19 World Duty Free (WDF) outlets at 13 airports across the UK.

The company says that customers can now find 'a product for every occasion', whether it is for gifting or for self consumption. The range went on sale last month, comprising three of Thorntons' best selling boxed chocolates, which include: Continental (385g); Classics (335g); and twist wrapped brand Moments (850g). In addition, a box of Thorntons famous Original special Toffee (625g) and a Diabetic Chocolate Selection Box (415g) are also available.

David Proctor, Head of International at Thorntons said: ‘We are delighted that some of our most famous and popular products are available to travellers from around the globe. World Duty Free has a great reputation for offering products that reflect our British heritage, so as one of Britain's most famous companies, we're thrilled to be able to showcase our best products in its stores, which we see as a window to the world.

‘We see our partnership with World Duty Free as a great first step in our plans for international growth. We are assessing distribution options in many different countries, but we are in the early stages, and now our products are visible on an international platform we hope to announce more listings in the coming months.’
