Find or invite your current suppliers
We already have over 450 suppliers on our site, but if any of your existing suppliers aren’t there, you can easily invite them to join for free. Once they’ve accepted your request, they will be able to set you up with the products and prices they offer you.
All your products will now appear split by supplier in your inventory to order. You can chat with suppliers and keep track of orders all from within your dashboard.
Create a menu based on what’s available locally
If you’re launching a new menu or opening a new restaurant and want to do something hyper-local, you can put your postcode into our search and take a look at the suppliers available closest to you to inspire your menu creation. If you’re lucky enough to be in Hampshire, you might have some of our speciality mushrooms and tomatoes suppliers right on your doorstep.
Check if suppliers have been recommended by other chefs
There’s nothing like a recommendation from another chef who has been working with a supplier for years to give you the confidence you’re making the right choice. Our public supplier recommendations enable you to benefit from the knowledge and experience of industry professionals even outside your own personal network.
Find suppliers that are doing more for the environment and community
Many of our suppliers put a lot of effort into producing their food and drink responsibly and giving back to the community. Several of them use their products to help solve environmental or social challenges. We like to promote all the good work they are doing by allowing you to filter search results by environmental and ethical activity as well as specific accreditations they may have.
Discover products you didn’t even know existed
Often the best things in life are unexpected. Until you input something specific, our search will present you with a random set of suppliers each time you visit, but you can also specify broad categories like snacks to get an idea of what’s available – everything from lotus seed popcorn and crisps made from surplus salmon skins!
We’ll even go that extra mile and help promote your restaurant, all for free!
