Customers Struggle to Find New Suppliers and Items

Food, beverage, and CPG companies have unique challenges:

  • Buyers have a hard time finding the right items, which can hamper New Product Development (NPD).
  • Incomplete online directories and general search engines produce off-target results making it challenging for buyers and sellers to find each other.
  • Online searches often provide thousands of results, forcing buyers to navigate multiple web pages looking for the right item.
  • Once items are discovered, too much time and effort is spent on follow-up questions about key characteristics like organic, non-GMO, technical specs, etc.
  • Ordering samples, securing documents, and follow-up Q&A over the phone and through email is time consuming and inefficient.
  • Disconnects across Quality, Procurement, and Regulatory departments can cause more NPD delays.

“We used Market Hub to identify a Supplier for an ingredient and were able to complete the necessary qualification activity within a week using TraceGains – a process that has historically taken several weeks to months! The Supplier recently received their first large purchase order!”
