Fresh produce supplier Bidfresh has launched the the Fresh Food Hub offering fresh produce, fish, meat and dairy from established regional suppliers via desktop, tablet, mobile phone or app.
Users will have access to a collection of Bidfresh businesses on the hub including: Campbell Brothers, Daily Fish Supplies, Direct Seafoods, Kingfisher Brixham, Henson, Kingfisher Midlands, Neve Fleetwood, Oliver Kay, Rustic Cheese, Southbank Fresh Fish and Taylor Foods.
Stephen Oswald, chief executive of Bidfresh, said: “The specialist knowledge and customer relationships of our individual businesses are what we were built on and are vital to our business. With the addition of the online ordering system, time is freed up for our account managers to better service the needs of our customers, whilst day-to-day order entry can be easily processed at the press of a button by using the freshfoodhub app.
“Most customers can benefit from this convenient and easy-to-use online facility. For example, many chefs are unable to order during office hours – having to wait until after service to place orders – so the app offers a quick way to repeat order or manage stock while in the kitchen, rather than relying on voicemails which can often be unclear or missing detail.”
Users can access the hub at www.freshfoodhub.co.uk or by searching for ‘freshfoodhub’ on the App Store or Google Play. Once signed up using their customer account number for any of the businesses on the system; they receive their own login. Additional logins are also available for use by other team members, such as accounts – enabling them to access past invoices etc, as required.
