New merchandising qualification for F&B industry

Your merchandising team is a vital link in representing your brands and ensuring they are presented in-store in the optimum way. With 76% of purchase decisions made in-store, we know that having a capable merchandising team can lead to improved sales.

That’s why we have launched the National Certificate in Retail, Level 2, focused on merchandising fundamentals, and endorsed by the New Zealand Food & Grocery Council.

This programme has been designed in collaboration with our industry partners to meet the specific needs of the Food & Beverage industry, and training materials can be worked through self-paced or classroom delivered.

“The qualification represents a great opportunity to up-skill your merchandising teams to meet the changing needs within the retail landscape. Executing with excellence is pivotal to success in today’s environment and your merchandisers are a vital link,” says Toni Christie, Sector Development Manager at Competenz.

On successful completion of the qualification learners have the opportunity to progress into a National Certificate in Sales, Level 3 and Level 4.
