DRIVE EFFICIENCY IN YOUR FOOD AND BEV BUSINESS
So your Food Business is growing. Congratulations!
Let me guess...
- A new important customer has shown interest in your products?
- The last marketing campaign is performing well?
- You just launched a new product or range and getting more demand?
You are ready to grow but...
- You have reached the limits of your Supply Chain capacity
- Your costs are too high due to business process inefficiency
- You can't get insight from the data collected
Regardless of the reason, if your business needs to grow, you need smooth operations that are simple to execute and easy to manage. My Question for you:
Do you have a plan to implement the change necessary to achieve your goals?
Hi. My name is Alfredo Iorio
Founder of Viscontis - food business consulting
I have been in the Food & Bev industry for the last 20 years; working on Operations, Supply Chain and Logistics management for medium and large companies across Europe.
In 2015 I was hired by one of the leading food wholesale group in the UK and started working on strategy implementation. As a result, I had the amazing opportunity to learn from some of the most brilliant minds in the industry.
Working side-by-side with Supply Chain, Finance, Business management, Sales and IT experts on large scale projects, I gained tremendous insights on how to innovate, improve and change working patterns, processes and implement strategic plans to achieve company goals.
Social media, marketing and good products alone cannot make a company grow
You need an efficient Supply Chain to cope with the increased complexity that a growing business must deal with:
- Purchase and planning
- Warehousing and Logistics
- Cost control and budgeting
- Software and Business Intelligence
All these areas of your Food Business must scale if you want to grow
I have worked with businesses trading with the big names in the industry
with leading supply chain service providers
using the best software
I CAN DRIVE CHANGE WITH...
Coaching and training for management teams and operatives plus support with the selection of new staff. Because strategic management and engaged teams means good business
I can map your process to identify gaps and opportunities for improvement; then I design new procedures and provide support to implement the necessary changes.
I provide guidance and expertise to improve existing technology or to implement new tools. Automating tasks and getting insights to pave the road to lasting growth
