With complex distribution, multi-faceted ingredients and a vast array of regional cultures, getting a handle on this ever-evolving sector can be a difficult process. Fortunately, Brizo provides a board and diverse set of information that can offer insights on the industry and allow for highly targeted research and prospecting. In order to help guide heads of sales who are looking to expand their product offerings into the Canadian market, we provide this guide to evaluating and understanding the Canadian salad market.

Defining the Canadian Salad Market

At the outset, it is important to define what constitutes a “Canadian salad”. While there are certain commonalities among salads across the country, the ingredients and presentation will vary depending on the region. For starters, it is important to note that when it comes to salads, not all of them are created equal. Depending on the market, there are certain salads that are more popular than others. This could include items like Caesar, Greek, Waldorf, Cobb, and so on. Furthermore, there are certain ingredients which will go into each of these salads that will change based on regional cultures and preferences. For example, Caesar salads may contain bacon, or croutons, or cheese, or any combination of these ingredients. On the other hand, Waldorf salads might include apples, walnuts, celery, dates, and mayonnaise.

Formulating the Right Recipe

The key to succeeding in the Canadian salad market is coming up with the right recipe that will appeal to the broadest cross-section of consumers. In order to do this, distributors must start by understanding the consumers in each region and how they prefer their salads to be made. This can be done using various data platforms that offer insights on the foodservice industry, such as Brizo. The platform can help marketers and salespeople gain a better understanding of regional tastes and preferences, as well as the ingredients and other components that go into each type of salad. Once they gain a better understanding of this information, they will be better equipped to formulate the right recipe that will appeal to the broadest audience in each region.

Choosing the Right Distributors

It is also important to understand where the salad will be distributed. This is essential, as each region will have its own set of distributors and outlets that will be the best option for getting the product to market. If a distributor does not understand the local market, they may make the wrong choices when it comes to choosing the right distribution network and outlets. Therefore, using the data from Brizo, marketers and salespeople will be able to identify the outlets and distributors that will best meet the needs of the product in each region.

Targeting the Market

Once the right recipe and the right distribution network have been identified, it is time to start targeting the market. This is where the data from Brizo comes in handy, as marketers and salespeople can gain a much better understanding of the target market and how to position the product. This can include understanding the demographics of the market, the consumers’ attitudes towards the product, and the most effective channels to market the product. Additionally, Brizo offers data enrichment to help marketers and salespeople make the best decisions when it comes to targeting the market.

In the end

Evaluating and understanding the Canadian salad market can be an uphill battle, especially for heads of sales that are unfamiliar with the region. Fortunately, Brizo offers a board and diverse set of information that can offer insights on the industry and help to make the process simpler and more efficient. By understanding the ingredients for each type of salad, selecting the right distributors and targeting the market, salespeople can ensure they are well-informed and equipped to make the right decisions when it comes to the Canadian salad market.
