Do you want more of your products in    more shopping carts more often?

It is incredible how our industry has changed so much, so quickly. The impact of the coronavirus is there at every level of the food industry. In our conversations with many producers, processors and retailers, it is the uncertainty that is the biggest challenge. They can figure out how to give people the physical distance they need and they are already looking for alternative sources of supply if they are concerned. The questions about the length of the impact and the depth of the change are tougher to answer. Unfortunately we do not have all the answers. What we have been trying to help people with is how to react in the situation we are in and the balance between short term and long term solutions.

Join us each Wednesday for our Recipe for Success as we share insights to help your food business during this challenging time. You can watch our first Recipe for Success “working with retailers in volatile times” right here.

This series is FREE for everyone who registers and we will deliver information on a different topic each week. Some content and lots of time to answer your questions, because every business is unique.

November Series-The Fourth Quarter

2020 has been a unique year for many reasons. We saw significant changes to the production and processing and the retail environment. Consumer and customer priorities changed and many industries were impacted. The retail food sector remained strong as more people are working and eating at home. It is important for producers and processors to finish the year in a good position with their customers. Retailers put a lot of emphasis on winning the 4th quarter. Supplying the right amount of product when they need it will continue to help your relationships.

Nov 18- We have had 30 Recipes for Success presented by FCC this year. Each week we have worked hard to develop and deliver content that is relevant and helpful to you in your food and beverage business. This week it is your turn! We are going to be there to answer your questions and talk about what is important to you in your business now. This is our final session for 2020 because the rest of Nov and Dec you should be working on your business and visiting the market to see what is happening.

SKUFood is a resource for producers and processors in the food industry. Our reason for being is to deliver insights, processes and support to help get your products on the shelf and into the shopping cart. One of the best benefits of SKUFood is our community. Our members have access to unique information developed specifically for the food industry. We continue to add content and right now we are working on special resources to help navigate the current challenges in the food industry.
