a virtual food web for better B2B food purchasing

We make use of technology to create efficiencies in sourcing and purchasing, giving businesses the option to choose local, sustainable suppliers without the additional burden of managing a broader supply chain. We also help build connections to foster collaboration across our network, spotting opportunities to reduce food miles and food waste. As proactive partners of your business we go above and beyond to support you as you transition to a more sustainable model.

Who we connect

We don’t just make new connections, we also facilitate existing relationships and make it easier to collaborate.

Food and drink buyers

We work with any business that buys food and drink and is working towards a sustainable business model they can communicate to customers. Our user-friendly and easy-to-tailor platform helps you manage multiple supplier relationships in one place, access our network of supplier specials, consolidate deliveries, and report on your environmental impact.

Suppliers

We work with any supplier to better connect them with their customers, streamlining communication to prevent ordering mistakes. We promote sustainable practice and help suppliers understand what buyers are looking for in terms of sustainability so that they can win more business through improved sustainable practice. Our platform is easy to use and enables you to keep product information regularly updated according to your own product codes.

Logistics providers

We identify opportunities to aggregate the orders of smaller suppliers to optimise routes and reduce empty running. We also arrange cross-docking and shared warehousing across a range of logistics partners for reduced food miles and more cost-effective transportation of goods.

Contract caterers
Purchasing groups
