Riding the supply and demand wave is a real doozy these days. It may feel like you can’t win. If you navigate the supply chain issues well, you may have more overstock now than before – and with the rising cost of food, consumers’ choices fluctuate, creating disruptions in your carefully planned production schedule.
Food Retailer Expectations
Retailers must manage consumer expectations to protect their image and retain customers. Food manufacturers want to keep our retailers fully stocked with products, so customers don’t turn to competitors, but this can lead to too much food.
Consumers are fickle and trained to pick only the best-looking food that isn’t close to expiration. When product packaging gets damaged during shipping, consumers may believe the product is compromised. Lastly, limited-time promotional items, outdated packaging, or even less popular items are often quickly removed from inventory and thrown away.
Overstock Food Solution
The bottom line is that overstock food that can’t be sold through primary outlets leads to a loss of profitability for the manufacturer. But there is something you can do to prevent waste and mitigate the loss. Natural Choice Foods provides a simple solution for moving more of your overstock products with total brand protection. Here’s how it works.
Natural Choice Foods buys overstock, distressed, off-spec, and outdated products from food manufacturers and distributors. We take it all, so you don’t have to spend time and resources sorting food items for us. We donate and recycle what we can’t use or resell into biofuels, compost, or livestock feed.
Natural Choice Foods safely repackages, labels for resale, and sells overstock food through approved channels, giving you the ultimate protection of your brands and your bottom line. We can repackage fresh or frozen food items into nearly any size package under one of our house brands or your own.
