CARLISLE, Pa. – Giant Food Stores Inc. here has formed an information sharing agreement with consulting firm and fresh foods specialist The Perishables Group, to enable the retailer to implement a customized perishables performance tracking and category development program.
Giant said the agreement will enable its perishables executives and its supplier partners to gain new insights into category performance across produce, meat, seafood, deli, and bakery.
"Information to strategically analyze perishables performance has not been available in the past," said Phillip Helms, Giant’s s.v.p. of perishables.
