Helping Dairy Manufacturers Build Strong Communities One Grocery Store at a Time
A staple in most customers' diets, dairy suppliers provide the milks, yogurts, cheeses, and other dairy department products that grocery retailers rely on. Food sales agents are critical to securing relationships with grocery retailers who look for dairy suppliers that they can trust for consistent quality and quantity of items.
At Epic Sales Partners, we provide access to relationships we have built over 35 years of working with the dairy industry and grocery retailers alike. We know that you depend on our consultative support just as buyers depend on us to provide them with the perfect partners to meet customer demand now and in the future.
Our retail specialists understand the dairy category, as well as the on-shelf expectations of the retailer, specifically as it relates to placement, pricing, and promotion. They bring that experience when they represent you from the first introduction to each performance review. Our team helps you position your products for prime shelf positions and brings ideas to the table to increase visibility and improve your market share each year.
In past generations, the choices were only between skim, 1%, 2%, or whole milk. We now have many different beverage offerings, from lactose-free milk to plant-based milk using almonds, coconuts, soy, and oats. The same applies to other dairy products, such as yogurts, cheeses, and whipped cream. We can help you deliver your variety and innovation to each grocery retailer by leveraging the insights and expertise that Epic brings to each relationship.
Changes in the Dairy Industry Bring New Opportunities
We work with dairy suppliers and grocery retailers to introduce brands and product lines that fit the current demands of customers and reflect local trends. But as you know, trends in the dairy industry often change, and that’s why we are always looking ahead to what’s next so that we can advise you and buyers on what product innovations to bring to market.
Epic understands the need for fresh, consistent products that taste great every time. Our consultative approach will help you build long-term relationships with grocery retailers that will enable you to drive revenue and provide the best possible execution for buyers and grocery store customers.
“Dairy buyers have introduced innovative products to grocery customers in the past 10 years, and I know that our product lines were part of this thanks to Epic. Because of their experience with the Dairy industry, the grocery retailers listened and gave us a shot. Now we’ve expanded into multiple regions of the United States and we know Epic will continue to help us grow.”
