Perceived Value, True Costs

The masterclass ‘Perceived Value, True Costs’ will deep-dive into the commercial capabilities of industrial sales and marketing professionals to create, price and sell value derived from sustainability. The European Green Deal – as a code of Conduct – imposes a regulatory impact on the business going forward. How to value the true costs of sustainably produced food ingredients? Top consultants provide insights on how to value intangible benefits coming from sustainable food ingredients.

“The masterclass ‘Perceived Value, True Prices’ combined the strategy of industrial marketing with the practicality of industrial sales. A true in-industry masterclass exchanging theory and best practices within the context of the food ingredients industry.”                  

Robbert Rosenkamp, Sales Manager at Exter

“The IFFI masterclass offered a great opportunity to reflect on sustainability in the food value chain and who should pay for it. The diverse cases presented by IFFI members demonstrated that many peer companies face the same challenges, and the connect offered by IFFI proves very valuable.”

Fokke van den Berg, Head of Marketing & Digital at DSM

Perceived Value, True Costs

Producers of food ingredients direct global supply chains, source raw materials and manufacture food ingredients with certain technical features. Sales and marketing professionals in the food ingredients industry value and sell these features such as taste, texture, shelf life, stability, food safety as tangible benefits. However, following the sustainability trend, suppliers of food ingredients today proclaim to value and sell a better world. These claims go from increased levels of animal welfare and biodiversity, deforestation prevention, no child labour or a reasonable income for farmers.

The ability to address one or more of the 17 SDG’s with a solution coming from food ingredients brings value to the table of the customer. But how to value, price and sell this solution? Will your customer demand a lower price and be part of the problem or accept a higher price and be part of the solution? Participants will acquire insights about valuing intangible benefits and they will become familiar with value selling techniques.

The masterclass will take place on the three following days:
22-23 June, 2022
6 July 2022

Michel Scholte, Impact Institute

‘With the concept of True Pricing, societal and environmental costs are also to be included in the overall cost price of food ingredients. To implement this concept in the business of food ingredients successfully, requires a mutual understanding of both the producer and customer about the impact of this concept on each other’s business. Ultimately creating a more sustainable solution together with more value at a higher price level. How do you make your customer partly responsible for the solution instead of being jointly guilty?’

Michel Scholte is the Director and co-founder of Impact Institute. Committed to an economy where all products have a true price and all organisations steer on impact weighted accounts, he has been elected as ‘Minister of the New Economy’ (CSR Netherlands). This is a ceremonial role aimed at accelerating sustainable business.

Feike Swennenhuis, Bunge Loders Croklaan

‘To add value to our global supply chains is complex, but highly relevant in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) of the United Nations. But sustainable solutions often put restrictions on price, flexibility, reliability and sometimes on quality and other product related criteria. To what extent are customers prepared to accept these restrictions and make a contribution to a world that succeeds instead of fails?’

Feike Swennenhuis is Marketing Director Europe at Bunge Loders Croklaan. He is an inspirational leader in the area of marketing, innovation and strategey. With over twenty years of international experience, Feike developed a unique set of marketing, R&D, consumer insight and leadership skills, approaching marketing challenges with teams in a consumer and customer centric way.

Heino Hovingh, Hoving & Partners

TRAINER DURING THE MASTERCLASS

Using True Pricing principles in the overall cost price of food ingredients, it is of extreme importance to be able to get the value confirmed and payed for by the customer. The value does not come from tangible benefits such as taste or shelf life, but it is about intangible benefits addressing global warming, personal health, animal welfare, etcetera. How to commit your customer to a higher value of food ingredients? This is a three-day session enabling participants to master value selling techniques and capture the perceived value of true costs!’

Heino Hovingh, sales and negotiation consultant and trainer, has supported renowned companies such as ABN AMBRO, Jumbo and Shell to achieve better sales and negotiation results. Before turning to entrepreneurship fourteen years ago, he occupied managing and director functions at AXA, Coca Cola and Numico.
