SodaStream proves a festive hit with retailers

SodaStream, the sparkling drinks maker, has become one of the UK’s best-selling products this Christmas 2011.

The brand saw its Christmas sales rocket across its key retailers, as shoppers raced to buy their SodaStream in time for Christmas. The fun and entertaining nature of SodaStream has no doubt made it a gifting hit with people of all ages. Consumers appreciate the key benefits of convenience and cost-savings, and the recent trend towards do-it-yourself appliances has provided additional sales momentum.

General merchandise retailer Argos was blown away by the success it has had amongst its customers. With the number of SodaStream sales up by 380% year on year, the product was one of Argos’ top Christmas gift purchases.

Yvonne Stinson, Homewares Trading Manager at Argos, said: “We started selling Sodastream in 2004, and 2011 has by far been our biggest yet for sales. More functional kitchen items such as turkey roasters and carving sets typically sell very well at Argos in the run up to the festivities, but this year SodaStream was on a huge number of Christmas wish lists.”

And it’s not just Argos who witnessed record sales; SodaStream did extremely well across supermarket retailers. Sales continued to exceed expectations in Asda, which has led to a large increase in distribution for the New Year.

Online supermarket Ocado reported excellent sales, as did key department store John Lewis. Selfridges, who stocked SodaStream for the first time in 2011, proclaimed that it was one of its key Christmas sellers.

A spokesperson for Ocado, commented: “Sales of SodaStream have done extremely well this Christmas. It’s been one of our most popular items with sales up 95% year on year. The fun nature of the product has no doubt contributed to its success – and it’s a present that’s perfect for all the family.”

Chris Gardener, Buying Manager for Cookshop at Selfridges, also commented: “Sodastream has revamped machines with a stylish appeal and in tune with the Selfridges eco-credentials. For those of our customers who like their drinks with added fizz, they are perfect.”

Fiona Hope, Managing Director for SodaStream UK says: “SodaStream has sold phenomenally well this year, with many stores selling out entirely. Having invested heavily in TV advertising all year, it’s now clear SodaStream is really becoming a ‘must-have’ in many thousands of kitchens up and down the country. Customers are impressed with both the modern styling of the range of drinksmakers as well as its power to rid homes of loads of wasteful plastic-bottles.”

2012 sees the launch of several new SodaStream flavours including a Clear Plus range with added health benefits, as well as its Naturals range and a tastier than even Cola flavour.

In addition to this SodaStream is proud to be a supporting partner of Climate Week this March. Becoming a partner was an obvious choice for SodaStream, who offers a solution to reduce single-use plastic bottles.

Notes to Editors:

About SodaStream:
SodaStream manufactures home beverage carbonation systems, which enable consumers to easily transform ordinary tap water instantly into carbonated soft drinks and sparkling water. Soda makers offer a highly differentiated and innovative solution to consumers of bottled and canned carbonated soft drinks and sparkling water. Our products are environmentally friendly, cost effective, promote health and wellness, and are customizable and fun to use. In addition, our products offer convenience by eliminating the need to carry bottles home from the supermarket, to store bottles at home or to regularly dispose of empty bottles. Our products are available at more than 50,000 retail stores in 42 countries around the world. There is also no need for electricity, as when you buy your SodaStream drinks maker, a full CO2 gas cylinder is included under licence, entitling you to use the cylinder with your SodaStream. When the gas in the cylinder is used up, you exchange the empty cylinder for a full one, paying only the cost of the gas refill.

Ocado delivers over 21,000 product lines including Waitrose goods and a growing Ocado own-label range. Last October it was named World E-tailer of the Year at the prestigious World Retail Awards and, earlier this year, won Consumer Initiative of the Year at the Grocer Gold Awards for its popular mobile commerce platform.
