Key Highlights
Red Sky Crisps entered the UK market in 2009 and had lost all of its supermarket listings, save one, by the end of 2013. Despite a "natural" image, strong branding, and high marketing investment, sales reportedly fell over 56% that year.

In such a competitive market, the brand was unable to stand out from its competitors that offered hand-cooked products at a lower price.
