Grocery retail isn’t for the faint of heart. From high levels of competition to razor-thin margins, grocers face challenges that rarely have simple solutions. Ultra-fresh products like fruits and vegetables pose some of the largest difficulties because they’re unlike any other category in food retail, but they also comprise one of the largest revenue streams and opportunity centers. This discussion will review common challenges in fruit and vegetable management as well as strategies for how to turn those obstacles into opportunities.
- Trends and key influencing factors related to the fresh category
- Managing the complexities and challenges presented within the management of fresh products
- Considerations when looking to evolve the management of fresh products
