Find out how new grocery lighting is improving business at the Food Lover's Market.
The right lighting
Designed as a modern eatery offering gourmet foodstuffs, the store’s top priority is to provide high-quality produce to its customers. Needless to say, it is crucial that produce in the store appears fresh and appetizing, and that customers have a first-class shopping experience. As a result, the Durban branch sought a lighting upgrade that would dazzle and delight shoppers. And with the rising cost of energy in South Africa, it wanted to save electricity too.
With the help of installers Radiant Lighting in cooperation with VK Lite, cutting-edge luminaires were positioned about the store. The new lighting concept was based around MASTERColour CDM Fresh 70W. This innovative lamp produces crisp sparkling white light and makes fresh food like tomatoes, peppers, and apples appear irresistible.
The new lighting concept has taken the in-store experience to a new level. Fruit and vegetables appear at their freshest, with vibrant colors that invite shoppers to take a closer look. Even colored packaging looks better under the new lighting, and the results speak for themselves. Since the installation, the store has experienced a marked increase in sales – another great victory for innovative lighting.
Compared to our Mini White SON lamp, the CDM Fresh is 60% more energy-efficient and has a 50% longer lifetime. With the new system in place, The Food Lover’s Market will gain energy savings of 30-50%.
