How to Sell Overproduction Food Inventory
When the supply chain runs amuck and distributors face a situation of food inventory overproduction, Lewisco Holdings is the answer for those wondering how to sell the merchandise. We take goods without a place in the primary markets and give them one in alternative channels.
As products linger on storage and display shelves, first line marketers begin to look for solutions to the problem. While liquidation is only one of various avenues, we contend that it’s the safest for the brand and the one most likely to provide recoupment of investment.
Waste is all too often a consequence of overproduction. Rather than leaving products to languish and damage the environment and your profit potential, choose liquidation.
Charitable organizations benefit from the work of Lewisco Holdings. Among the alternative customers whom we service, you’ll find community food banks throughout the country. Other buyers include prisons and schools. This service allows customers to benefit from the low prices we seek for the brand-name, high-quality foods that we purchase for redistribution.
The liquidation service that we provide also allows small, privately owned retail spaces to widen their profit margins, extend goodwill to customers, offer specials on quality goods, and develop a loyal customer base.
When seeking liquidation services from Lewisco Holdings, the process is simple and straightforward. You simply need to provide us with the following product information so that we can formulate an offer, a process that usually occurs the same day:
- Label and brand
- Ingredient list
- Nutrition facts
- All dates on packaging
- Package size
- Quantity of goods per unit, case, pallet, and load
- Preferred price
After we make an offer and both parties agree, we will wire payment right away and collect the merchandise the same day or the one that follows. Targeted distribution will follow as soon as possible by way of our dedicated carrier network and thirteen nationally distributed warehouses.
What makes products right for liquidation?
In addition to overproduced lines, various conditions should merit a call to Lewisco Holdings. We welcome items with labeling problems or slight damage, items nearing or past best by or expiration dates, leftovers from promotions, closeouts or marked down items, and otherwise slow-moving goods.
We accept goods in any of the following product categories:
- Food and grocery products (frozen, refrigerated, canned, and dry)
- Alcohol-free beverages (water, soda, energy drinks, sports drinks)
- Dog and cat food and treats (biscuit, kibble, canned, jerky)
- Bulk items (spices, pantry supplies, baking goods, candies)
- Household items (paper, cleaning, HBA, and more)
Our expertise and established liquidation processes benefit both our customers and clients. Lewisco Holdings doesn’t broker or trade goods; instead, we liquidate them through purchase and redistribution.
As we provide liquidation, we take extra care to ensure that the brand is protected. Our buyers agree to protect the identity of the brand by refraining from advertising or display, agreeing to deal within prescribed geographic boundaries, and avoid wholesaling the goods that they buy. We even provide repackaging services for products. The Mabel’s Farm brand, our own private label, provides the essential protection.
