Direct sales from the producer are on the rise in times of inflation
Superior quality and fresh products
Direct sales guarantee fresher and better quality products. By avoiding intermediaries, producers can offer vegetables, fruits, cheeses and dairy products, as well as fresh meat harvested or prepared shortly before they go on sale. These products, available via self-service or self-pick, meet the needs of modern consumers looking for local and trusted products.
Affordable prices in the face of inflation
Direct selling avoids the additional costs of intermediaries, which results in more affordable prices for consumers. Faced with growing inflation, direct sales offer an economical alternative for daily purchases. Consumers can thus make significant savings on their purchases of vegetables, fruit, cheese and dairy products, as well as fresh meat.
Providing solutions tailored to today's consumers
Direct selling must be modernized to meet the needs of today's consumers. Practical and comprehensive solutions are emerging to facilitate the purchasing experience. For example, Mimelis, a platform specializing in direct sales in Switzerland, allows consumers to discover local producers, place orders online and plan the collection of their fruit and vegetable basket according to their preferences. This provides a convenient and personalized shopping experience, in line with the expectations of modern consumers. For their self-service or pick-your-own points of sale, producers can now rely on modern solutions adapted to the needs of today's consumers. Mimelis now offers producers a solution for their self-service allowing them to add self-service product shelves without installation costs.
