Our Suppliers service
We believe there’s a better way.
Our mission – to supply the on-trade with the best possible range of F&B products to improve their business.
From brands offering new products and a different approach wanting to grow and challenge established market leaders.
By using platform economics and a fresh ‘let’s do it better’ approach, we are creating the wholesale F&B service trade buyers are dreaming of. Ordering quality items with one order one invoice and one delivery in quantities they want and delivered when they want.
A managed marketplace selling quality F&B products to a broad range of trade buyers
Your goods are promoted and sold on our platform.
Unlike wholesale, you know who your goods are sold to and at what price giving you the ability to market and build relationships with premium buyers. We take a fair commission at source leaving you with regular income to draw down sale by sale.
And we don’t just market your goods from our platform – we have a team of Sales Agents working UK wide promoting and selling your products and managing the account when it’s opened, getting that first order and following up working with our team to guide the process through ensuring the best service at all times.
Our typical trade buyers are from independent pubs, restaurants, hotels and cafes.
We also sell to events caterers, corporate, sporting, weddings, any outlet where quality and originality are worth seeking out and paying for.
All buyers are vetted and only signed up members can see your trade prices.
There are no signup fees, promotional fees or any other hidden costs.
We charge a commission on all sales a fair rate based around the typical product profit
We also give you back a slice of commission to spend on brand activation with our
clients – if you sell more we all earn more.
We offer three levels of membership from dropshipping to a fully managed sales marketing and logistics service
A free place on the platform with your shop page marketed to buyers interested in your products. You receive orders via the platform and we leave you to arrange delivery.
All of level 1 plus fulfilment. You place stock in one or more of our warehouses and our system arranges deliveries, payment, invoices and advises you when we need more stock.
All of level 2 but place all or some of your existing clients to order from our platform and we look after their needs. Supplying your products when they need them, visiting their premises to ensure they are happy with the service and encouraging further sales and keeping them abreast of your special offers, new stock items, leaving you to concentrate on running your core business.
Level 1 is a commission on all sales. Levels 2 and 3 are subject to low-cost storage and picking/packing and delivery charges and a small management fee for looking after your existing customers.
