The Agri-Retail Management Programme

The Agri-Retail Manager

The agricultural ‘retail’ environment is being remodeled. The typical producer-oriented rugged trade branch setting is transforming to align with the opportune fast-paced, customer centric, modern retail trends; the growing competitive marketplace; and the digital advancement that is advancing wholesale accessibility to farmers.

Agri retailers are more conscious to guard their market share; excel at implementing new market growth strategies; employ best retail and merchandizing practice; and introducing multi-channel sales strategies.

Change is not new to agri-retailers. In just a decade this sector had already adapted to multiple shifts in how business is done, the changes propelled by manufacturer mergers, farmer consolidation and technological advancements along the agricultural supply chain. Agri retailers had to review practices and strategies to better compete and meet their farmer-customers’ needs.

The solid foundation from where agri-retailers continue to grow their business in this ever-transforming environment are their wide-spread footprint.  Agri Retail Branches, are spread throughout South Africa, operating as service delivery and distribution hubs, delivering whatever agri-production requires to even the most rural of farmers, with personal care and dedication. 

Heading agri retail outlets are managers, excellent administrators, now challenged to grow with the change, to transform into Master of Business, experts of multi-channel marketing and sales, custodians of complex inventory and trusted advisors to our farming and non-farming clients alike.

At Peritum we think forward and work with our clients to design and shape a future-ready workforce.
