Developments in the plant-based retail landscape

Plant-based protein products are taking off. The number of newly launched products and SKUs on the shelves are increasing at breakneck speed. How can you stay ahead of the game in the rapidly changing and growing market of plant-based protein products? It is important to keep your standard product range up-to-date and at the same time be flexible enough to stay innovative.

As a category manager, you strive every day to create an optimal product range. You adapt quickly, you want the best for your category, and you want to achieve optimal results. A key factor is making sure that the entire process runs smoothly. You don’t have the time or inclination to deal with stock shortages, product loss, or other hiccups. Everything needs to be in order, without tedious processes. Especially within the private label range, it is critical that you keep up with the market. Your goal? To make sure that the consumer finds what they are looking for.
