Secondary processors

The ‘front line’ is characterised by fast moving consumer goods predominately interfaced with supermarket customers, offering more scope for new product development, branding and profit.

The characteristics of success are clear focus on product (by SKU) and customer profitability and cash flow, thinking and acting strategically, and maintaining good all-round team performance in terms of both procurement and sales.
