Food & Beverage eCommerce Is Here to Stay
Grocery eCommerce is growing by leaps and bounds. We've made it our business to understand your unique needs including regulatory constraints, integration with key business systems, storage, processing, and delivery of perishable products.
Food and Beverage Growth Opportunities in eCommerce
Grocery is one of the fastest growing eCommerce segments. Turning more food shoppers into online customers represents a $58 billion growth opportunity for grocery retailers and CPG companies, according to NielsenIQ research. The boom in online food and beverage sales was fueled by COVID-19, but consumer confidence and new shopping habits mean consumers will continue to buy online.
Sell how and when your customers want it. Think about delivery, curbside pickup, multiple shipping options, adding subscription services, or selling through 3rd-party marketplaces.
The food & beverage industry has not remained untouched by COVID. From the rise of e-grocers to unprecedented changes in consumer needs, COVID has to inform your B2B ecomm strategy.
Effectively manage your supply chain to improve sales and your company's bottom line. Manage warehouses, suppliers, distribution, and receiving. Inventory forecasting is essential for reduced waste, efficiency and improved cash flow.
Your inventory has a shelf-life, literally. It must be properly handled with safety guidelines and regulations in place. Knowing exactly what you're selling, where it is located, when inventory will expire is crucial.
