In a rapidly evolving agri-food industry, the ability to use data in a way that benefits you will help you stay relevant and win in the marketplace. But with all the data available today, where should you start?
Companies that incorporate data as an asset are winning in their market. Join other front runners in the fruit & vegetable industry and learn how Best Fresh group, an exporter of fruits and vegetables, uses the Performance Monitor to benchmark against competitors.
A-INSIGHTS spoke with Martijn de Graaf. De Graaf is Managing Director of Farmhouse International, a business established in 2013 that focuses on exotic fruit and vegetables. De Graaf:
"I prefer to do things a little differently than the competition, so if I know what the competitors are doing, I also know what they aren’t doing."
The need to benchmark in the fruit & vegetable industry
As is the case with many other businesses, the need to back up the company’s performance with figures increased. De Graaf: “Our CFO advised us to compare our figures with a certain benchmark. Through word of mouth, we came into contact with A-INSIGHTS and learned about the possibilities of the Performance Monitor. We decided to start working with A-INSIGHTS right away.”
