January can be a busy time for everyone. The kids are on school holidays, public holidays are on the horizon, and the warm weather is making you crave some ice cream. So how can your food and beverage business make the most of the high season?
Many food items have high and low periods, and the seasonality of these items means that there can be increased levels of strain and demand on manufacturers. Ice cream sales, for example, sky rocket during the summer months, but demand for hot desserts like apple pie take an upswing during the winter. This can lead to attempting to manage the storage and display spaces available as demand for certain items ebbs and flows. This, of course, is not only limited to frozen goods, but extends to perishables as well. The improper storage of perishables could be disastrous for a customer, and could have negative effects on your business’s reputation and bottom line. The loss of goods and stock because of a lack of storage is a financial loss that can be avoided given the right amount of space and the right equipment.
Sharon Barstow notes that “Much of operations is about being able to match supply to demand [which] can be difficult with certain business models that sell perishable goods.” In the summer months when demand is higher, your company will inevitably have to match that demand. But what happens if you don’t have enough space?
Amertec understands that there is a higher demand of your cool rooms, display cabinets, and fridges in the summer months. If the demand is there but the stock is not, your company is potentially missing out on increased revenue. Whether you have a food and beverage company, supermarket, cafe, or restaurant, your perishable food stock is one of your greatest expenses if it’s lost or one of your greatest sources of income if you stock, store, and sell efficiently.
