VISIONARY RETAIL EXPLORER
The retail explorer was born from the idea of taking a portfolio of brands and developing into a programme that reduces costs, and makes business development more affordable.
Our aim is to enter into conversations with buyers to get samples reviewed and enter ranging reviews with the ultimate goal of getting a listing.
We will target the whole market including 'Top 4', Independents, Convenience, Discounters or just a specific sector you require help with.
VISIONARY RETAIL MANAGER
With this package we focus on the Account Management of retailers won.
This involves attending all meetings associated with activating a launch including the Retailer Head Office.
We also focus on all of the administration involved, including setting up new lines, data reports (both internally and externally) and supply chain communications.
We assist in promotional planning & executions, including recommendations. As new accounts come on board, we are able to add this into the Manager package at any time.
VISIONARY GAP ANALYSIS
Our approach when analysing the market is to understand who to target and the areas to focus on, taking our direction from market data to produce impartial findings.
We focus on desk research and capture all relevant data as well as visiting stores where possible to get a feel for the brands out there, their packaging options and shelf space within the retailer.
The data we capture; Brands, weights/size, flavours, price and promotions
From this data collection, we compile a summary of brands that currently fill the shelf space where your products would sit.
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 from Dan 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!"
