The Health Stores Ireland (HSI) network of over 200 independent retailers in Ireland has recently put in place a supplier development and product innovation programme called Guaranteed Healthy. This programme was developed by the HSI Network in response to a number of recent factors including but not limited to:
The supplier development programme will be seeking new and emerging product lines on a rolling basis across our category lines. This isn’t a one-off annual campaign for public relation purposes with some benefits for successful suppliers. Instead, it is a core part of our long-term business strategy.
The focus of this programme is on mutual, long-term value creation for suppliers and our network operators across Ireland. We have scalable options for micro producers and want to work with suppliers to help them grow to the point that they are comfortable. We can accommodate listings on a regional as well as national basis, but do not expect people to scale up the way multiples often demand.
You can review all the details of this opportunity using a free Sluamor subscription. However, you will need to upgrade to a paid subscription in order to submit your proposal.
The Guaranteed Healthy Supplier Development Programme works as follows:
At this time, HSI is focusing on the Long Shelf Life Foods. Options that will be considered include but are not limited to the following:
Prospective suppliers are invited to indicate their interest by submitting a proposal via Sluamor. In addition, all queries must be raised through Sluamor. The platform will ensure that all clarifications are shared with all suppliers interested in this opportunity.
HSI are keen to work with suppliers of innovative products, based in Ireland or other parts of the world. However, while HSI will feature selected products prominently in the pilot stores and promote them, HSI is seeking to develop collaborative relationships. There is a co-dependency, and so producers that are skilled at promoting footfall into HSI stores to help their product to sell, will do the best from this programme.
Prospective suppliers must be able to:
Evidence of the above will be sought as part of any agreement.
The HSI Network is looking for producers or distributors of Long Shelf Life Foods with new and emerging innovative product lines.
Prospective suppliers should consider the typical customer of the HSI network. Apart from the population at large, they are often people with specialty diet requirements that are poorly catered for in mainstream mass-market supermarkets. Products should complement the traditional health store offerings and may be considered listed with existing suppliers.
Each supplier must provide the following:
The value of the contract included here is an estimate of 20 unit sales per store per week at €3.50 per unit across 30 stores over 12 weeks. It is included here for guidance purposes only so prospective suppliers can realistically gauge and scale product for pricing purposes.
The HSI Network makes no guarantees that any supplier candidate will be selected for its Guaranteed Healthy Programme. Suppliers will only be selected if HSI determines that a candidate supplier is a compelling choice for its network of retailers, based on the information provided by the supplier via Sluamor, or thereafter during the development dialogue stage which will comprise samplings / reviews.
