In almost 20 years in the food industry I have seen too many good food businesses failing because of reasons that have nothing to do with their products. Too often, innovative brands with healthy and sustainable products failed for lack of business management skills.
Mistakes in demand planning and forecasts resulted in having too much or too less stock in the warehouse; inaccurate order fulfilment meant bad customer service and high cost to manage claims and returns; data managed in standalone records often resulted in reports and data analysis for sales and costs being unreliable, leaving senior management with no tools to make timely decisions about the strategy of their business.
Overall, I have seen too many companies failing because of profitability issues caused high running costs. I believe that, if more small and medium companies with innovative and sustainable products succeed, we all succeed. Local economy, better jobs, better choices for consumers. It is because of this that I founded Viscontis. To provide support to good companies and help them achieve operational efficiency, therefore be profitable in the food market.
