KetchupCyprus for Awesome Service in Cyprus

Posted on 2012/10/26 by


Let’s face it, Cyprus biggest industry is the service industry, yet it’s only too often that are victims of someone’s elses incapacity of caring about service dysfunctionalities. You know them all – the biggest brands in Cyprus are resounding case stories, even the Cyprus Presidency is not inmune to the symptoms, an extreme case of disregard towards thinking ahead.

Modern day ocurrences in our daily lives lead to situations that defy human logic. Here is a fresh example:

Can’t understand how there is a shortage of Heinz ketchup in Cyprus? Supplier is receiving next container on the 15th November #incompetence

It’s the service, Stupid!

Today, it’s the oldest of Cyprus Corporate entities which is at the heart of what we can experience in the month ahead – Our supermarkets and favourite food places will run out of Heinz Tomato Ketchup – if they haven’t done so already.

In this modern day in age, a local supplier, partner with one of the most innovative international food corporations with specialised know how in supply-chain management – will run out of stock imminently, and knowingly will take 1 long month (the company has estimated) before a new shipment to arrive. Take it easy guys, no rush!!

Incompetence you say? That’s the Way it Is?

I’m not going to appeal to national pride since it’s not going to be the first time, and neither the last, that some country runs out of stock of a food item, but symbolically, this laisser-faire situation towards unresponsive service is a real cancer biting away at the edges of hospitality.

To those of us who aspire to sustain and connect Awesomeness to Cyprus, we should not stand still – the foundations of our well being requires that action be taken to fix the broken chain of value and caring among other things.

Foundations rooted in Ketchup you say?  Shouldn’t it be Humus.

Just Imagine it, today it’s Ketchup – What’s next
