Please notice in the seasonal products:
This Selection plan includes seasonal product tenders for summer wines, summer spirits and summer brewery products. The distribution time for these products is from 8 April to 14 August 2021.
The Selection plan includes also the tenders for Oktoberfest beers of which distribution time is from 26 August to 9 October 2021.
You will find all seasonal products in the Excel file by using the distribution level -filter and choosing "seasonal products".
The volume estimates given in the tenders are indicative and more accurate sales estimates will be given at the time of purchase when the listing is confirmed. Availability of the product must be at least the amount stated on the volume estimate.
Vintage changes for seasonal products are allowed before the listing date. The vintage that will be distributed to stores may differ from the approved sample if the vintage is more recent than the approved sample. The possible change of vintage must be mentioned on the offer and the new vintage must be available according to the initial listing schedule. Alko will check that the new sample corresponds in style to the approved sample in order to be accepted. This will be verified in accordance with Alko’s sensory evaluation and quality control processes. Before sending the new vintage sample it must be agreed with the product manager responsible for the seasonal products.
