2024 Operations & Financial Performance Surveys

The 2024 IFDA Operations & Financial Performance Survey is now open. Foodservice distribution companies that participate in the survey receive free and exclusive access to full results and customizable reporting tools.

IFDA’s Operations & Financial Performance Surveys are long-running surveys that collect key metrics to assess how your business is doing. This year, we’ve broken out the operations survey and the financial survey into separate questionnaires for ease of completion. Both are hosted in our benchmarking platform and we strongly recommend companies complete both to get the most use out of the data.

This survey is now closed. Results are expected in summer 2024.

Participating companies receive:

  • Aggregate Report – a downloadable PDF report that offers an abridged overview of key results for each survey component completed.
  • Company-Specific Report — a downloadable PDF containing a company’s own ratios and statistics shown alongside their closest peers.
  • Detailed Data Tables — a downloadable Excel spreadsheet of the complete survey results. Companies that complete both the operations and financial surveys will receive additional data cuts comparing best-in-class data. Those that only complete one of the surveys will receive a standard spreadsheet for that section.
  • Searchable Results — an interactive online tool that allows users to drill deeper into the data by creating custom aggregations of the survey results.
  • Scenario Generator — provides users the ability to visualize how changes in various “scenario factors” will impact their business. (for financial survey only)
  • Interactive Report Card — provides an objective, qualitative evaluation of business performance versus similar reporting companies on the basis of various key performance measures. (for financial survey only)
