First steps in a dairy line
Now, how do you get the product to your customers? This, taking into account that the wholesalers who buy it from you do not promote it, if you do not launch a special campaign for it. Thus, we have certain techniques to achieve this.
Gondola stand: this is the most privileged place in the supermarket because of the good display it has. To do this, we have to pay a special bonus to the supermarket, who will be in charge of placing our products in the best place.
Variety and Coverage of Needs: since we do not have direct contact with the final consumer, what we should do is carry out a market study prior to launching the Dairy Line and thus know what people are looking for in these products and prepare them based on this, maintaining an innovative and delicious product.
How does a dairy product company work?
This business idea consists of creating a line of products made with lactose, one of the most profitable and varied food sectors in the market. This is why we must resort to government institutions and dairy farms that will be the ones to supply us with the initial product for the elaboration of the others.
So what kind of products can you produce? Some of these can be different variations of milk, such as skimmed milk, semi-skimmed milk, whole milk, whole skimmed milk, chocolate milk, flavored milk with different fruit options and more, milk-based ice cream, powdered milk, flavored yogurt, skimmed yogurt, puddings, different types of cheese, custards, among others.
Requirements to open a dairy product company
When we are about to launch a Dairy Line these are the requirements that we must take into account so that everything is in order:
Permits: as it is a food company, you will need to request the corresponding permits from the Ministry of Health in order to operate with them and handle them according to the health and safety regulations in force in your country. Make sure you are up to date with the necessary licenses and registrations.
Infrastructure: You will need a manufacturing plant or, if not, you will need to rent the space or labor of an existing one to manufacture your own Dairy Line. This must be conditioned to work as such, both from the point of view of the corresponding machinery and the structure itself.
Make sure you have a space for one type of product, as well as the necessary machinery for all of this.
Personnel: you will have to hire operators and administrative staff, as both parties are vital. In turn, a purchasing manager and a sales manager, to deal with the raw material to manufacture the products, as well as to ensure that they go to market and are sold successfully.

Taking into account the above, it is time for you to make a business plan in which some financial estimates are present regarding the purchase of the product, the purchase of the machinery, the payment for the necessary personnel, the operating premises and the promotion of the products. In addition, you should include a descriptive overview of the operation of your dairy business to set the direction of your business.
Another important point is that you must know the market you are entering. In this sense, it is convenient to carry out a market study that allows you to know the prices that are being handled with respect to other products similar to those you are planning to launch, the operation of the competition, the location of your customers and, especially, to know the profile of your target audience in order to address them.
How to sell my products?
The time has come to take your products from the factory to the supermarket shelves. To do this, it is necessary to visit them in person, which the sales manager can do, and negotiate with them. No wonder they ask us to leave a first delivery of products for free to see the customer’s acceptance. If we want to work with the big chains, it is important to do the
sacrifice, since we’ll see the benefits later. The other deliveries, will surely be paid on credit at sixty days.
In turn, our Dairy Line can also be sold in mini-markets and self-service stores, two store modalities that also have their advantages, although large sales volumes are not one of them.

In this way, you will make yourself known to other establishments and spaces that order your product to be sold.

Points in favor: one of the most important advantages of this type of business, is that at present it participates with one of the ingredients that are consumed more, in addition, we have a catalogue of products available based on it, which are sold to different types of public, which increases the benefits for the products of these.
