Affiliated Meat Department is dedicated to providing the freshest, safest and most nutritious beef, pork and poultry available. The warehouse Meat Department staff and retail merchandisers worked in-tandem with member retailers and food service clients to attain a year in sales of $332 million for 2013 with a tonnage of 189 million pounds of product was shipped as well.
These achievements were the result of continuing bold marketing venues through special event sales, the tried and true Smart Buys and Super Buys programs, weekly ad media and the training and merchandising by the Affiliated Meat Department retail Specialists.
An added bonus to the above sales was the returned cash patronage rebates to member retailers that totaled a historic and epic $11.4 million. This success of the 2013 story was made possible by the support and diligence of retailer and warehouse operations, merchandising and promotions. The same is planned for 2014.
