Mayer Tapped To Oversee Produce And Floral At Schnucks

Steven Mayer has joined Schnuck Markets as VP of produce and floral reporting to Chief Merchant Steve Harper.

Mayer formerly was president of Flavor 1st, a large produce operation spanning 20,000 acres of farmland across North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and specializing in growing and packing produce for sale to grocery store chains, wholesalers and farmers markets. Mayer worked directly with growers and supported farm operations across the region.

Mayer comes to Schnucks with more than 35 years of experience in all aspects of the industry and has held key management positions in major grocery operations across the country.

“We are excited to bring Steve on board as his depth of experience literally from farm to table will help us as we work to build on the Schnucks reputation for quality fresh foods,” Harper said. “We have a strong perishable program now, and with Steve’s expertise we can grow our supplier network as we focus new ways to bring the freshest foods to our customers.”

Mayer graduated from the University of Phoenix with a double major in business administration and management and a master’s in organizational management. He also taught business courses for a time. In addition, Mayer holds a doctorate in business administration from California Coastal University.

Family-owned Schnuck Markets operates 98 stores and 93 in-store pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
