Product Specifications 

Well written, simple product specifications, can improve quality, reduce rejections, reduce shrink, lower cost, and streamline operations.

Developing detailed product specifications for high volume products and categories is a must in today’s highly competitive marketplace.  Product specifications create a level playing field for suppliers, creating more competitive bids, and lower product costs.

Strategic Sourcing 

Buying fresh fish is not about calling two suppliers and buying the cheaper option. Limited supply, changing quotas, multiple origins, and worldwide logistics make fresh and frozen seafood procurement an art form. Seafood sourcing is unlike buying any other product or commodity.

Developing simple, common sense approaches to sourcing, vendor selection, and assortment can free decision makers to spend more time developing strategic partnerships and finding the next hot buy, instead of just filling orders and buying.

Category Management 

What are your customers looking for? What price points create incremental sales gains? How many varieties of fresh fish should I stock? What are the best practices in my class of trade? Are there low hanging fruit ready to be picked by modifying assortment, adjusting sale prices, changing placement, and creative merchandising? Category management in seafood is part science, part art, and part hard work. If you are ready, we can help you improve customer satisfaction, and increase sales.
