USA: Wal-Mart weekly sales summary

This is the weekly update for Oct. 23 and includes sales through Friday. The four-week period will extend from Saturday, Sept. 30, through Friday, Oct. 27. Sales were below plan for the Wal-Mart division and on plan for the SAM'S division for the third week of the period, although sales for the month are still tracking in the given 4-6 percent range. After posting strong numbers last week, the customer count at both divisions was essentially flat, but the average ticket and merchandise mix still remained strong. Overall, sales of Halloween merchandise appear to be progressing well and ahead of last year. Electronics sales, including pre-paid cell phones, pre-recorded video and DVD are also strong. Discretionary spending remains good as seen through items such as appliances, electronics, office equipment and furniture, which seems to signal that the consumer does have liquidity. The Wal-Mart division reported its best results in pet supplies, health and beauty aids, paper products, cosmetics, floral, electronics and fresh food. Electrical appliances also had a strong week, driven by the expansion of our GE programs. The division's best areas geographically were in the West and the Northeast. SAM'S strongest areas were paper products, pharmacy, food, floral, electronics, apparel, office equipment, furniture, small and major appliances, toys, tires and optical. Also, renewal memberships remain strong. The International division's best performances came from South Korea and Canada. In Mexico, the Supercenters and SAM'S also had a good week. Our original October estimate that we communicated at the time of the September sales announcement was 4-6 percent. Three weeks of the four-week period are now complete and sales for the month are still tracking in the given 4-6 percent range.

IRELAND: Minister hammers home marketing message at world's biggest food show

Northern Ireland primary producers and food processors looking for export markets for their products must take a serious look at their competition and how they are attracting consumers if they are to succeed in business. This was the keynote message hammered home by Brid Rodgers, Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development during a visit today to one of the biggest food exhibitions in the world at Villepinte on the outskirts of the city of Paris. During her visit to the Northern Ireland Exhibit at the Salon International de L'Alimentation (SIAL) Brid Rodgers, who had been invited earlier to see exhibits from some of the 90 countries at the show, stressed the global nature of food marketing. "I will be visiting all nine of the Northern Ireland companies exhibiting at the show and I am pleased that these companies have the confidence and ability to compete against other companies in the international market place. The agri-food sector needs to sell most of its production outside Northern Ireland and it is vital that companies have the necessary marketing capabilities if they are to succeed. "I am pleased to note the co-operation between DARD and the LMC in sponsoring a Trade Development visit by 14 members of the Ulster Lamb Group who will be assessing their production and quality assurance methods against international competition from a number of lamb producing countries exhibiting at the show. It is important that primary producers appreciate the requirements of the market place and see for themselves how they are being met by others." Later the Minister was guest of honour at a IDB reception for NI companies exhibiting of SIAL. The Minister will spend most of the day at the Exhibition tomorrow and has plans to make a number of courtesy calls on An Board Bia, Food From Britain and the Argentine and Australian beef promotion stands. Meeting have also been arranged with senior representatives of the French Government and Agriculture Department.

FSA Wants Changes to all EU Food Labeling

The Food Standards Agency is to press for far reaching changes in European food labeling rules to provide clearer information for consumers, tighter controls on claims about GM ingredients and better information for people with allergies. The FSA is also planning to work with industry on voluntary action to make food labels easier to understand and develop a new national code of guidance on the promotion of foods to children.The action plan, agreed by the Food Standards Agency Board at its meeting in Belfast, follows nine months of consultation and consumer research. The Agency is calling for the compulsory EU listing of all ingredients in food that could cause allergic reactions, and wants to extend the listing to include alcoholic drinks. To help end what the FSA describes as "consumer confusion caused by misleading health claims such as low-fat, fat-free, and 80% fat-free," the Agency will be pressing for legally binding EU standards on nutrition claims and clear nutrition labeling on all foods.
