Happy Buda-pest

Holy grain! Things have been looking a little bleak recently on the Flour Arranging front, but Peter has saved the day with this little beauty from Tesco in Budapest.

Budapest - Tesco

What I really like about this arrangement is we're back to shelved flour. No pallets or plastic packs stacked in the middle of an aisle, just flour, in it's rightful place, presented nicely, on a shelf.

I know this arrangement isn't perfect (some facing-up is desperately needed) and there is a nasty gaping hole where more flour should be, but it's a move in the right direction!

A solid 6/10

The Red Bag and The Blue Bag Had a Race!

Sam comes up trumps again with an absolute horror show from Lidl in North Walsham.

Seriously Lidl, either North Walsham is full of self-raising flour addicts or you are bidding for the wooden spoon in flour arrangement!

I hope your next delivery contains enough self-raising to rectify this travesty, until then;

Super Star Flour

Another photo sent in from Czech temporary resident Sam, this time from Tesco in Narodni Trida, Prague.



I am glad to see that Tesco CZ takes flour as seriously as we do and this 'Super Star' arrangement only goes to prove that! I really like the simplicity of this colour-coded 3-tier system with Granny giving it the big OK hand symbol in the poster above.

Having said that I don't think she would be so happy to see the rogue red bags sneaking their way onto the blue column, one of them clearly dislodging one of the blue bags from it's rightful place. I imagine she would also not be too pleased about the completely reversed pack of green flour in the first green column, come on Tesco, have some respect for Granny Flour!

5/10 - Great idea, poorly executed.

Crash Landing on Planet Organic

Hi Fellow Flour Fans!

A while back I got in contact with Derek after coming across this blog to ask if I could help out or contribute in some way...and here is my first entry! I'm very excited, thanks Derek!

Ben has sent us a fab flour-filled photo from Planet Organic on Westbourne Grove, London.



He says;

"Being a smaller shop than a large supermarket of course their arrangement is more limited. However it is reasonably pleasing to the eye."

I agree Ben! BUT I would have to point out that for an establishment priding themselves on the products they offer I am slightly disappointed about the presentation of this display. The gap in the middle of the top shelf is, for me, unsightly (especially as this could be easily avoided by moving all the bags along, thus not only closing the space but also perfectly aligning the first bag on the left with the edge of the shelf) and I don't even want to think about what's happening on the far right of the second shelf from the bottom! Come on Planet Organic, reach for the stars and your flour sales will rocket!
