Yowie on a roll in the US
The rollout is the result of 50 store trial with the US retailer in Texas in September last year, which was then extended in March 2015 to 1500 Walmart stores across the country.
Walmart is the largest company in the world by revenue and the largest grocery retailer in the US.
Each week, more than 140 million customers visit Walmart’s more than 4300 stores, with the retailer reporting $288 billion in sales in fiscal year 2015.
Earlier this year in April the Yowie Group also completed a 12 store trial in a tier 1 grocery chain in Dubai.
