Oh! Naturelle’s newest recruit
I’m Fergal and I’m working with Oh! Naturelle as part of my college degree. I am currently doing a Masters degree in Management and Marketing in UCC and as part of our degree we had an option to undertake a 20 week work placement or a research dissertation. I chose to do the work placement and I started here with Oh! Naturelle at the end of March. I’m helping out with all aspects of the company from social media marketing to organising deliveries to the SuperValu stores that Oh! Naturelle is stocked in.
Last weekend I was at my first in-store tastings for Oh! Naturelle. On Friday, I was in Down’s SuperValu Ballincollig and on Saturday Smith’s SuperValu Kinsale. It was great to be able to interact with the customers face to face rather than through social media. To see peoples reactions while tasting the sorbets was very interesting, some people love the Raspberry with a hint of Rose while others would prefer the Grape with Chia Tea and a hint of Mint. Whatever the flavour of choice though, it was great to hear what the customers thought of the product and to get feedback.
What struck me was the amount of children that absolutely loved the product, with one of them telling me they were ‘in heaven’ after trying the sorbets! It was great fun meeting everyone and telling people all about Oh! Naturelle, the ingredients and process. Even the employees working on the tills had to come over to ‘see what all the fuss was about’ as the sorbets were selling so much.
I’m really looking forward to the tasting coming up already over the next few weeks. So make sure to call in and say Hi to Oh! Naturelles newest recruit. I’ll keep you up to date on where I’ll be on Facebook www.facebook.com/Oh-Naturelle.
Finally, my flavour of choice is Raspberry, so good!
