Staying competitive in food retail: Best practices for fresh management

Successful fresh management can have a positive influence on sales, waste reduction initiatives, and customer satisfaction. Yet there are multiple challenges with short-shelf life products, including spoilage, the need to meet minimum fill requirements while avoiding overstock, and a constant variability in demand due to external factors. 

“The centralized ordering of fresh produce will also help to reduce waste on our existing range and minimize waste on new ranges, which is important to us as Coles aims to become Australia’s most sustainable supermarket.”

Kevin Gunn
Executive General Manager Central Operations and Transformation, Coles
