Industry Insights from KeyImpact Marketing
June 8, 2017
As I get older, I am amazed at how fast time moves by. It seems like only yesterday that we were talking about back to school. For many of you, vacation has already started, or the last few days are being crossed off the calendar for the start of summer. Summers these days are different than when we were all kids. Summer feeding programs are a true lifeline for many of our students. They provide nourishment and love that they don’t get anywhere else.
I am thankful to those of you who are doing your part every day to fend off hunger. Unfortunately, hunger doesn’t take a vacation, which is why your role is so important.
As you prepare for summer break, let me remind you of two important things:
- Bid awards are critically important for the Industry to firm up your procurement actions and for all stakeholders to get their house in line for the next year. Please click here to submit your bid awards or upload them on our website at www.kisales.com.
- Forecasting your first two months of projected purchases to distribution is most critical, this will help eliminate shorts and out of stocks.
In closing, thanks for all your support and your commitment to the children of our nation.
Have a great day,
