The role of the One Portfolio Sales Representative is to grow the customer's and Kraft Foods' business at the retail level.

Through selling, planning, ordering and distribution, as well as effectively manage activities such as merchandising,

shelving and pricing, the One Portfolio SR acts in an expert sales role to retail stores. The One Portfolio SR exploits

selling opportunities at the retail level consistent with company programs and strategies to positively influence the sale of

Kraft Foods products across the entire business portfolio (Warehouse and DSD).

As a result of having selling responsibility for Kraft's entire business portfolio (WH and DSD), the One Portfolio SR

may have fewer routed stores than a traditional Biscuit or Warehouse Sales Representative. Consequently, longer

selling frequency calls will occur each month at store level with reliance on Sales Service Reps to effectively provide

merchandising support at store level. This clear and complete store ownership will enable the One Portfolio SR to

improve store level relationships, identify more selling opportunities, improve scaleable retail execution and provide an

overall, higher level of customer satisfaction.

Sell business-building in-store merchandising programs to key store personnel by using consumer and trade information

that addresses the customer's needs.

Develop and maintain a complete knowledge of Kraft Foods products, sales systems, and procedures, including:

  • Sales objectives, campaigns and promotions, sales brochures and order guides, sales presentations, sources of
product and distribution, space management programs and uses, and proper merchandising.

  • Perform in-store planning by tailoring programs and fact-based sales presentations to the customer's needs, store
demographics, and the current consumer base in order to drive Kraft Foods and customer growth.

  • Develop strong business relationships with store management to provide service and value beyond the customer's
expectations.

  • Work with customer to ensure sufficient product is ordered to support customer take away, including from incremental
racks and displays, for DSD.

  • Communicate plans and effectively manage merchandising resources to build sales volume at store level. Work in
