...As a supplier to some of the biggest names in retail, managing director Edward Atkin, who has run the company for over 30 years, offers a supplier's perspective on what makes a successful retailer - and looks at how retailers and suppliers can work together to increase the value of product categories.
A differentiated propositionIn today's highly competitive retail sector, retailers need products that will differentiate them from other stores so that they are not always competing on price.As supplier to some of the biggest names in the world of retail - from Tesco
and Asda in the UK to Walgreens
in the US - AVENT sees the same pressures everywhere."Retailers may want a period of exclusivity with a newly launched product, or want product bundled in a unique way or in a specific format.For us as manufacturers and suppliers, the key is to preserve our economies of scale while being able to give retailers an à la carte offering," says Edward
At a time of fierce pressure on price - with significant price deflation across many categories - product innovation is critical for retailers looking to sustain growth."We need to be developing new products that will retail at higher price points, thus enabling the retailer to elevate transaction sizes and us to rebuild margins," says Edward
AVENT has a history of innovation: it was, for example, the first company to produce short, fat baby bottles - after Edward
discovered for himself the impracticalities of the traditional tall, thin bottles when feeding his
first son."Our product development is driven by customer comments, market analysis and retailer feedback - and by a commitment to growing the value of the market at higher price points through continuing to offer greater ease of use and better performance," says Edward
"There are two types of retailer - the ones that get the supply chain right and the ones that are trying to keep up," says Edward
highlights the example of those supermarkets that are investing in improving their wine range and the way they merchandise it, including having knowledgeable staff.That way, they can encourage people to buy more expensive wines that they might otherwise have bought only from specialist retailers."Only those retailers prepared to invest in their stores will stay ahead," says Edward
