Supply Chain Options
are some problems which are as common within the foodservice supply
chain as they are costly to the companies involved. Food under Focus
is experienced in many of these areas and can bring this experience
to bear to achieve the following results.
Ensure that food promotions are a success
We can help to achieve this by making certain that they start
according to the schedule and then monitor the volumes achieved
and compliance. We also work with our clients to ensure that stock
is available to meet the demand generated - there is nothing more
frustrating than a successful campaign which generates orders
which cannot be fulfilled.
Ensure that brand integrity is guaranteed
We can achieve this through the skilful use of the product list
and computer driven systems, thereby ensuring that the correct
product is used at the correct time which helps to protect brand
integrity and margins.
Help to manage stock
The benefits of this are multiple but include avoiding the unwanted
expense of short production runs as well as dead stock penalties.
Help to keep prices in check
We achieve this through the effective use of contracts & service
Produce rationalised & concise product lists
These product lists are particularly important for contract distribution
by face-to-face discussion with end users. This can only be done
by people who understand the commercial constraints of distribution
& the needs of the customer.
Managing new menu implementation
We manage new menu implementation by coordinating forecasted
product requirements with manufacturers and distributors.
We help to develop menus that satisfy the target market and profit
needs as well as taking into account operational capabilities.
