With his experience as a buyer, he brings a wealth of insight that augments our team’s capabilities. I caught up with Daniel and asked about his thoughts and advice to buyers on inflation, post-pandemic economy, and volatility we are seeing in supply chains.
Not only is it exciting to bring on new team members, but as they learn about our company and business, they give a little bit of insight from their careers that indicates if what we are doing as a company is on track or not. From a buyer’s perspective Fresh Avenue’s initial business model has now been proven with the pandemic shutdowns and the volatilities of the post pandemic economy of something that bring stability and value to the supply chain.
Daniel continues, “The key to being in an inflationary period is differentiating what we bring to customers with added value. This is where consolidation and minimizing labor with processed produce brings the value our customers. Fresh Avenue does this with our closer relationships with producers, and experience with fresh foods. We are also in a unique position to pair any commodity item with processed and then consolidate all the rest.”
Working hard to bring as much value to customers as we possibly can, that is exactly how we like to do things here at Fresh Avenue. Thanks Daniel, and welcome aboard!
