Turning Meat Suppliers Into Category Leaders
We understand that grocery retailers rely on quality fresh meats that meet and exceed customer expectations. The freshness and availability of these products is often the critical factor in where a consumer chooses to shop for groceries. We also understand innovation and variety in packaged meat drives new consumer trial and category growth. That’s why we only work with meat suppliers and producers who bring the best, most reliable sources of protein — either fresh or packaged — to retail buyers.

“We started working with Epic Sales Partners five years ago after several failed attempts at finding a good food sales agent. We were struggling to get the attention of larger retailers and lacked insight into the demands of stores across multiple locations. Epic was able to immediately get our products in front of decision-makers and advise us on how to tailor our offerings across the region to meet customer demands for fresh meats.”
