VISIONARY FOODSERVICE EXPLORER
Our Foodservice explorer is perfect for those just dipping their toe into the market and trying to get a feel for how their product sits in the OOH category.
We can help build your foodservice strategy and get you launch ready. Help take a portfolio of products to market, leveraging our network and reputation in the channel, gain end user interest and to then push into distributors and wholesalers.
You will have ongoing support throughout the project, helping to guide you to a successful launch.
VISIONARY FOODSERVICE MANAGER
The Foodservice Manager package is for people who already have their foot in the door and are looking for help to grow and maximise their listings.
We focus on the account management of distributors won. This involves attending all meetings associated with activating a launch including the Distributor Head Office.
We also focus on assisting the field sales teams in sales days, visiting end customers and the telesales teams with incentivised telesales weeks.
We assist in Promotional planning, Exhibition strategy and recommendations.
We know that no two businesses are the same
with different challenges, situations and
opportunities. This is why we are able to be
flexible with you, to ensure you have the best
support to achieve your goals.
We can blend our packages to align to your needs, timelines and aims, from helping you identify your brand in the market place, to business development and managing national accounts.
These packages apply to anyone from Pre Revenue to Multimillion Pound Turnover Companies.
CLIENTS WE'VE WORKED WITH
The Bake Shed
"We wouldn’t have been as successful in the US if it wasn’t for Visionary. Once we had product in the US we were securing launches with retailers at a rate of 1 per month, which was incredible! This was thanks to the hard work and dedication through emails, phone calls as well as helping face to face in the US!"
Get More Vits
“Visionary have been working alongside myself and the Get More Vits team for just over a year. In that time, they have guided the company into the foodservice industry and helped simplify the process with their vast understanding and knowledge of the industry.
They have introduced us to the various organisations within the category such as TUCO, LACA and HCA, and their network has allowed us to build relationships with key personal in each organisation, opening the door to potential new customers we previously have been unable to contact.
Their commitment and hard work has contributed to us securing multiple suppliers within foodservice, and this advice has allowed us to effectively activate these accounts.”
"It is an absolute pleasure working with Visionary Food Solutions. It’s hard to find outsourced support that offers such value for time, and at start-up friendly rates. Visionary are very talented and knowledgeable, helping us develop our Foodservice strategy as well as contributing to our early sales. I really couldn’t recommend these guys enough to other brands!"
