THE STRUCTURE OF THE ENTERPRISE

Experts with high university education work in the departments of commerce, marketing and finance. Many of them have certificates of the international consultative corporation MERCURY INTERNATIONAL. Marketing and logistics departments, managers of Kaunas, Marijampolë, Ðialiai and Panevëþys, staff of 2 branches in Vilnius and Kaunas deal with the realization of production. There are representatives in foreign countries as well: Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine, Byelorussia, Russia.

A product, ready for realization, gets into a new built store with 7 modern loading ramps. Then the product goes to retail trade points or to stores of the branches according to presented orders then to the net of retail trade. The market of bread and flour confectionery products is specific because these foodstuffs get stale rather quickly, however, a customer requires only new ones. So, this specific requirement is easily carried out by selling frozen products of our corporation which are delivered and preserved in the temperature - 18°C. The products are for baking right at the trade place.

Every shop, café, etc. which has once arranged a mini-bakery can react to the demands very sensitively (it is possible to regulate the assortment during a day according to the number of customers), produce always new provisions to the customer (formation of the image that a shop or café cares much about its every client), create "warm" atmosphere in the shop by diffusing a wonderful smell of the bakery, reduce losses to the minimum or avoid them at all (they can appear due to leftovers), cut down the staff (if there had been a bakery earlier) to minimum - one or two bakers, reduce the area of the bakery itself. The latest analysis of our sales results shows that frozen bread and pastry semimanufactures complete successfully with the production provided by other bakeries in both big cities and smaller areas, the quantity of sellings in different trade places increases constantly.

In corporation with usual products the provisions of MANTINGA UAB have many more advantages: they are completely new, prepared according to French, German, Italian, Hungarian, Danish, Lithuanian recipes. This gives new opportunities to retailers and catering facilities:

  • time is saved - very simply and quickly the customer gets the product "directly from the oven",
  • the circulation increases - it is hard to resist the taste and smell of fresh and warm pastry,
  • the problem of unsold products is solved - the shop-assistant himself decides what product, how much and when he/she should bake,
  • only fresh productions is available - warm bread and pastry are offered to the clients even in the evening,
  • we have always got wide assortment of production - validity time of a frozen products is long enough to accumulate and keep a wide range of foodstuff.

Despite of many advantages the production of MANTINGA UAB in comparison with analogous products of other bakeries can boast of equal prices. That is why our production is available for all customers even with small or middle income.
