Core Business Activities
If you own or manage a Restaurant, a Delicatessen or a Food Market Stall..
and have an ongoing purchasing process that revolves around using quite few suppliers, comparing prices, shopping around from the lowest bidder etc, NOT only it doesn't save you any money but ends up costing you in several ways. The key point is that if you find ways to lower the vendor's cost of servicing your account and give them the opportunity to make more sales, they are usually willing to work on a lower "mark-up": the result?
- Reduction in food cost, better prices and possibly fresher/higher quality products because of scheduled deliveries
- Fewer suppliers to deal with
- Fewer invoices: we produce one single invoice at the end of the month
- Less purchasing activities: your chefs/buyers/accountant or even yourself will have more time to concentrate on what is important
- Better service: having to deal with fewer people, improve communication
- Improved product consistency: cherry picking a product based on price often result on brand changing and therefore inconsistency
- Closer vendor relationship: talk to us, that is all we ask.
Food Wholesaler/ Distributor / Cash & Carry / Chain Food Operators
If you own a retail outlet you know how important is to keep your prices low. Big supermarket chains can pose a big threat to your business. We make sure you can compete with them at every level. And yes we can.
Even if you are a sole trader or in a partnership, we can still supply you. Even if your business line of credit is not so great, we can still deliver on a pro-forma bases keeping the same incredibly low prices. Just remember that our minimum order is always a mixed pallet of few hundreds kilo (except for expensive food items like fresh truffles or caviar).
Lowering Food Cost
We work with you for you, improving products supply chain by looking at purchases and offering better prices.
This is how we can offer lower prices:
- we have made special deals or deal directly with the manufacturer: our buyers assess all factories that we deal directly with. All of our suppliers are at least HACCP certified to comply with European laws. Most of them are ISO, BRC (grade A or better) and IFS certified as well. We also work with dairy and meat manufacturers with licences to export to Russia, China, Japan and USA.
- have exclusivity for certain products/brands.
- no stock holding: we don't hold any stock (except for offering a backup service to certain accounts) and therefore don't have to deal with stock losses or stock movements.
- no warehousing costs: but we do offer emergency backup products with certain accounts.
- deliveries are carried out by acclaimed freight companies which only focus is on customer satisfaction. Orders are delivered on time and are extremely cost effective reducing impact on CO2 emissions.
- in case of mixed pallets, your goods will transit at a logistic warehouse before dispatch.
