PARTNER LOGO 8 Retail Environmental Changes
PARTNER LOGO 9 Retail Partnering Realities Retailers are becoming more demanding in their partnering expectations, looking to us as a “business”, and as vendors Retailers are looking for holistic relationships that provide the best value to their businesses Retailers are concentrating more waste control and community impact, than financial tax incentives Retailers are looking for unique models and products to capture additional consumer market share (focused ethnicity, wider selection, higher standards, non-traditional, etc.)
PARTNER LOGO 10 Retail SDP Additional Points Reporting is Critical –Corporate Retail is pushing for more, better metrics. –Consistency is needed for good analysis. –Agency partners need to be held accountable. Agency Partnerships Continue to Grow –Estimated at 30% of all relationships. Higher yield assumptions. –FBs need to be diligent in monitoring and oversight. –Impact on larger relationships can be critical. Strategic Review of Pickup Frequency is Needed –Assumption is that more pickups yield more pounds… to a point. –More frequency may not be needed for all stores. –Ask pressing questions- get deep in the review, get strategic.
PARTNER LOGO 12 Nationally Coordinated Retail SDPs Walmart (Walmart/Sam’s Club) Kroger Delhaize Albertsons Target Supervalu Publix Winn Dixie Safeway BJ's Warehouse C&S Grocery UNFI Big Lots Walgreens CVS Costco SaveMart Brookshire’s Grocery A&P Sprouts Top 5 donors represent 82% of all retail donation volume in 2013 14,000 Stores participating nationally (includes national, regional and local partners)
PARTNER LOGO 13 Retail Partnerships (cont.) Walmart- Updated playbook, rotisserie authorized, dry volume increasing. Sam’s Club- Possibility of renewed discussions on additional categories. Kroger- Produce continues to be rolled out slowly by market with varying results. Formal re-launch efforts slowed due to corporate travel cuts. Joe Maggard (Shrink) is corporate contact. Albertson’s/ Safeway- Both companies are still separate- still should be treated as competitors. Some encouraging work within some Albertson’s divisions, pilot discussions are continuing with Safeway and a CA food bank. Target- Installation of new scanning program coming this year- should increase donations through less confusion at decision point. Working on program re-launch (tentative June/July) with emphasis on Target personnel visiting FBs for refresher and education.
PARTNER LOGO 14 Retail Partnerships (cont.) Supervalu (SAL)- Past Corporate contact is back, and renewed discussions around expansion of store program to Corporate SAL stores.
