Buying Groups and AssociationsThere are a number of buying groups that wholesalers and distributors are members of. There are the Foodservice, Frozen food, Catering Equipment, Cleaning and Hygiene etc.
Using a supplier that is part of one of these organisations do have a lot of benefits over the independent companies, unless they are a very large organisation, in which they could have a lot of in-house benefits to match the group members.
