Our grocery consulting firm is staffed by professional chefs / supermarket experts who have vast industry leadership experience.
We believe that the grocery industry today more than ever is connected to a variety of ingredients such as value, community engagement, local-purchased philosophy, health & wellness, social media and more. But fundamentally the most important ingredient is "KNOWLEDGE". Large chains offer training programs for their employees, but often the knowledge notions is delivered by members of the same trade and not in true contact with the food itself. Consumer trends begins in restaurants, by chefs, eventually products are created and enter the marketplace. Today's consumer wants the true explanation of a product along with usage, storage, application to recipes, historical and geographical elements and anything pertinent to the clarity of the product such as label explanation and breakdown. Trend Grocery Consulting offer training services, provided by chefs with first-hand experience and knowledge of the products. We specialize in ingredients from the Mediterranean basin, from olive oil, balsamic, couscous, pasta, legumes, seafood, meat protein, plant based protein and much more. We see ourselves as coaches partnering with you for the development of a professional program that allows your business to run more effectively, more profitable and eventually without us. Connect with us for more details, consultation is free.
