German confectionery group Haribo unveiled its new travel retail exclusive gondola at the TFWA Asia Pacific show in May 2013.

The new merchandising unit aims to display a wide range of the company’s sugar confectionery products and is themed around Haribo’s signature Goldbears motif.

Haribo made its travel retail exhibition debut at the IAADFS Duty Free Show of the Americas in March, where it presented a number of travel retail exclusive products.

New travel-themed items include a brightly coloured children’s trolley containing 250g Goldbears Minis and a Haribo branded lanyard keychain.

Travel retail exclusive 500g value pouch bags are also available, in addition to destination-themed 500g bags which can be customised for different countries. “Happy Germany” is the name of the product for the German market, which contains gummies shaped like famous German landmarks. Also on a travel theme is the Air-Parade 500g pack, containing small airplane gummies.
