The Sales Manager works with the Full Belly Farm sales team to maximize sales of our diverse and constantly changing line of products. This requires daily contact with dozens of customers, developing strategies that build our connections and relationships with them as well as developing and implementing strategies that result in sales of the full spectrum of available fruits, vegetables and processed items.
Full Belly sells to individual, restaurant, store and wholesale accounts. It is important that the Sales Manager seek out new accounts, and store accounts are especially important in terms of rounding out sales outlets.
This is a job that involves keeping track of many details: updating and sending the price list; finalizing orders; maintaining the email list of availabilities; coordinating information flow for trucking; printing invoices, bills of lading and pallet tags; correcting invoices; filing documents and more.
Visits to stores and meetings with buyers are occasionally scheduled as part of increasing sales. Interacting with the Full Belly Harvest Manager, our Packing Shed Coordinators and other Crew Leaders to assess availabilities and completion of a day’s orders are part of daily responsibilities.
To sell processed kitchen items, Full Belly maintains an on-line store. Some of the store orders are mailed USPS to our customers. The Sales Manager is responsible for interfacing with the kitchen staff in terms of inventory, and also responsible for fulfillment of the on-line store orders. The Sales Manager will work with a team to develop and implement marketing strategies for the on-line store.
