Video Playlist: Doing Business with Large Retail Chains  3/1/2016


During ECRM's Snack & Dry Grocery Event, held last week in Jacksonville, Fla., we put together an all-star panel discussion featuring current and former buyers from large retail chains to provide advice for suppliers on how to most effectively engage with large retailers. 


Among the topics discussed were supplier-retailer communications, how to prepare for an office visit, distribution and logistics requirements, and general do's and don'ts when dealing with large retail chains.The panelists included:
  • Brian Hughes, Category Manager - Snacks, Walgreens
  • Ed Hall, Category Manager, Center Store and Snacks, Food Lion
  • Salah Khalaf, CEO of Khalaf Consulting (formerly of Walmart)
  • Mike Wilkins, President of M.J. Wilkins Consulting (formerly of Dollar General)
The playlist below includes excerpts from the panel discussion, as well as one-on-one interviews with panelists.
