The weather has been heating up in the UK with some parts of the country reaching temperatures of 30 degrees! And one market that seems to boom at this time of year is BBQ food – and your wholesale business could boom with sales of products like this too.
Most parts of the UK saw good weather this weekend and thousands of consumers visited beaches and had garden BBQ’s.
The volume of people out enjoying the sunshine was reflected by the sales of summer food and drink products. A report on Daybreak revealed that over two million burgers were sold during the weekend and there was a 300% increase in the sale of Pimms.
If you are considering reselling products then targeting summer food and drink and outdoor products could be a lucrative investment. Food and drink products that are popular at the moment include Pimms, strawberries, BBQ food, salad and ice cream. With many consumers also preferring to source some of these products from local markets it could be a profitable choice to set up a pitch in your local town.

Other items that are being bought regularly include sun cream, sunhats, sunglasses, swimwear, BBQs and parasols. You can find these products in our wholesale holiday and seasonal goods section and in our lawn and garden products section.
