By understanding what motivates food distributors, we position your spend to take advantage of those motives.  This results in lower mark-ups which provides cost savings.  


A good food service supplier will work hard to gain business and then raise the

mark-up over time. The effect of these higher mark-ups is hard to track since prices can change up and down weekly.

Advantages To Our Clients: 

The Price You Pay is Determined by Three Factors: 

  1. Product Cost to the Distributor
  2. Freight Into Their Warehouse
  3. Mark-Up


Won't The Supplier Raise The Mark-Up Over Time? 

NO!  We regularly conduct audits of the supplier's invoices, including detailed reviews of the supplier's actual product and logistics costs, to insure that your prices are marked-up only as negotiated.​
