Food Merchandising Careers

Food merchandising involves purchasing food products and making them appealing to consumers through marketing, product display, and pricing. As a food merchandiser, you would work with a company that makes food products or with a store in order to make a certain product desirable. If you work with a food company, you would also be a contact between the company and a store.

A typical day for a food merchandiser may include:

  • Arranging a food display to make it more appealing
  • Finding the right price point for a product
  • Traveling to a store and advising on how to sell a product
  • Researching competing products’ food displays
  • Figuring out why a particular food isn’t selling

Depending on where you work, you may not need a bachelor’s degree to get started as a food merchandiser. However, the experience gained through the degree program may be useful to advance in your career.
