Foodservice Category Management

Insight-Driven Go-to-Market Planning Best Practice between Manufacturers and Distributors – fueled by the Full Plate™ Category Management Process 

Foodservice Category Management best practices were created by the Innovation & Activation Board, a group of 35 leading companies (19 manufacturers, six distributors, three brokers, The Partnering Group, IFMA, NRA, FSMA, IFDA, The NPD Group and Datassential). Their work established an all-inclusive process, language, best practices and metrics for the foodservice industry, which provides insights driven strategic planning with distributors. A white paper addressing the application of category management best practices and processes that help both distributors and manufacturers drive more collaboration and effective partnerships, titled "Full Plate™, Applying Collaborative Planning Best Practice in Foodservice," is now available.
