As your fulfilment partner we can look after the entire food fulfilment process for you; from receiving your goods into our secure warehouse, to carefully packing them for delivery, while managing your inventory in between. Our service can help to keep your customers happy, freeing you up to focus on growing your business.
Our team can carry out bespoke inventory management processes for your stock; including quality assurance checks, date rotation and batch control.
The food fulfilment Process
We will guide you through the set-up process, and inform the local government that our premises will be an extension of your food business.
While your products are stored in our warehouse, our team can carry out bespoke inventory management processes for your stock.
We’ll integrate our inventory management software with your own business systems. This means that we are immediately notified when an order is placed for your products, at which point we will prepare the order for shipping via your chosen delivery partners.
This also means that you can monitor the entire inventory management and fulfilment process remotely.
Part of the regional food enterprise park
Our main fulfilment centre is part of Norfolk’s Food Enterprise Park, just outside of Norwich. Norfolk is an agricultural hub which is home to thousands of grocers, farmers and other independent producers in the food & drink and alcohol sectors.
Our location means we can keep costs low while still being close to the major UK ports, ready to fulfil orders to the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
What else do you need to think about when it comes to choosing a food fulfilment partner?
We advise that the goods need to be packaged and protected as well as possible, with ice packs supplied for fresh & frozen items.
Fridge & freezer storage
Does your produce need to be frozen or refrigerated? We will need a suitable fridge or freezer to accommodate your products.
The Tapas Lunch Company
“Demand for our products was growing rapidly and we wanted a more professional handle on things. We needed a fulfilment company that could automate the majority of the work rather than doing everything manually. We had found ourselves spending a lot of time chasing up orders on our customers’ behalf, tracking down and resolving human errors. After meeting with 2 or 3 companies, we chose Vdepot in 2010.”
