Over recent years, Aimia Foods retail business has grown significantly and is now one of the largest trading sectors within our business.

Our core competencies stretch across hot beverages, such as coffee, hot chocolate, malted, cocoa, whiteners and more recently baking mixes. Our retail team is responsible for the sales and distribution of both our portfolio of licensed branded products and retailer own label products into the retail sector.

Our retail success has been driven by the performance of our core ranges combined with continuous and market-focused innovation. We pro-actively monitor market trends, identify relevant opportunities and develop quality products to satisfy. We add real value through market leading product development and innovation.

We pride ourselves on the depth and breadth of our category knowledge and expertise. Here at Aimia, we strive to be the category partner of leading retailers and our Account Managers are complemented by a Trade Marketing function which, by using effective Category Management techniques, works as an extension of their own category teams. We convert powerful consumer and market insight into actionable proposals and develop customer orientated solutions for our partners.

What differentiates Aimia from the rest is our broad range of market leading brands combined with our ability to be flexible and adapt to the unique and ever-changing needs of our customers. Insight and innovation are firmly at the heart of everything we do.

In short, we are small enough to provide the personal touch whilst big enough to do great things quickly!

So … what can we do for you?
