Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

Is a partnership programme between Foodstuffs and its key vendors to improve the management process of inventory replenishment of the vendor's articles through their various stages of listing, continuous replenishment and run down with Foodstuffs.

The key attribute of this partnership programme lies in having a dedicated resource employed by the vendor to effectively manage their own articles remotely using Foodstuffs replenishment system. This in turn allows the vendor greater visibility of the inventory status and article sales performance. The partnership also enhances the effective management and timely entrant of New Products, dedicated planning and co-ordination of promotions and close monitoring of existing inventory levels, which results in reduced out of stocks. Our participating vendors have seen immediate benefits as have our members and customers.

Foodstuffs have been in successful VMI partnerships with vendors since 2000. An information pack is available on request from the Merchandise Operations Manager.
