  • Issues• Workforce: – Ageing workforce, struggling to attract new staff – Long hours for drivers – Compliance & Adaptive – Relocation / Challenging staff from MK depot• Competition: – Tesco / Abel & Cole – Tesco is cheaper on unit price• Margin: – Historic creditors MK depot closed bedford left to pull debt from their customers – Payment cash / doorstep legacy / new banking rules for drivers
  • Recommendations• Workforce:• Competition: – Canvas traditional customers (Senior citizen functions/locations) – Use tying/ bundling deals to get people paying upfront and tied in for a long period• Margin: – Improve Forecast for inventory to reduce waste. • Data analysis – Discount on a one year order of minimum order (with room to increase order when required) – add slow moving stock to other popular products (could them free when a higher margin product is bought)
