The Retail Buying Process with Sobeys

Date: June 16, 2016 (English)
Time: 10:30am
Cost: Free

Have you ever wanted to know what goes on inside a buyer’s head?

Connecting with retail buyers in Canada can be a long process. Suppliers often do not know where to begin or what buyers are looking for. What steps can you take to get the attention of retail buyers like Sobeys? What products are they seeking? Could you find the next superfood for their shelves or fill a demand in specific product categories such as ready-to-eat or children's snacks?

Join TFO Canada as we host Hugo Brien, Head Buyer at Sobeys Quebec, for an interactive Webinar on the Retail Buying Process. Sobeys is the second largest supermarket in Canada and includes the banners of Sobeys, Fresco, IGA, Foodland, Price Chopper, Thrifty Foods and Canada Safeway. Learn what criteria Sobeys and similar buyers use to select new suppliers. Identify common buyer expectations for production capacity, quality control, safety initiatives, and certifications. Learn tips and advice on how small and medium-sized enterprises can market themselves to large retail buyers and avoid past mistakes of other suppliers.
