Corporate Level Purchasing

We have developed long term relationships with all packers at the corporate level and gone through extensive negotiations to deliver the highest service and value.

Daily Market Updates

We continually monitor relevant market sources and pull together daily and weekly market updates. This service keeps our distributor members up to date on market swings and industry news to better inform their buying decisions.

Weekly Negotiated Pricing

One of the most time-consuming areas of purchasing is gathering weekly pricing from your vendors to make your buying decisions. We have gone through negotiations with all the packers we deal with and offer weekly negotiated pricing that keeps our distributor members competitively positioned throughout the year. This benefit allows for more time spent on growing and managing the distributors marketing area.

Daily Packer Push List

We are in constant contact with our our suppliers to provide our members access to current packer inventory levels and daily deals. This save you time that you can use to grow your sales!
