There are quite a few steps that need to be taken to enable us to deliver ingredients to you. Below you can see a general overview of our Supply Chain that represents most of our ingredients.
We import ingredients made from raw materials grown all across the world typically the EU, USA, Canada, and China.
The raw materials for our ingredients are grown in a field and harvested for processing.
The raw materials are sent to our Supply Chain Partners, for production into ingredients ready for use by industrial manufacturers.
The ingredients produced by our Supply Chain Partners are packaged and stored ready for shipment.
The ingredients are loaded, securely sealed and transported to the UK via a container ship or truck. Together with our Forwarding Agents, we manage all aspects of importation including clearance of all the ports. This short-chain enables us to minimise the risk of potential delays.
Upon arrival to port, our ingredients are transported to a BRCGS certified warehouse for storage and distribution. This step will be skipped if an order is a direct delivery to a client.
The ingredients are delivered either direct from the port as a direct delivery, or from our warehouse for manufacturing.
The finished products produced by our clients are delivered into the either wholesale or retailers, which are then purchased by the final consumer.
We have a dedicated and focused team, who are totally committed to understanding our customer requirements, ensuring excellence in service and providing reliability and product integrity every step of the way from the field, to manufacture, to you.
