Subscribe to our mailing list   You'd have to agree that ordering and managing stock, especially high value perishables (cheese especially) can be a challenge. Something we have noted over the years is the retailer's disappointment and frustration when a SKU is unavailable.

The problem arises - especially with European cheese - when a product is taken up by new clients and forecasting of imports is caught short. As the suppliers are not on our doorstep and are subject to strict bio security legislation, it's not a simple phone call to arrange for more stock that will be delivered in a few days.

Indent ordering with importers is not a new concept, but traditionally, importers insist on significant volumes to facilitate this. Until now!
