Managing a food business is no easy task. As a restaurant, café or bar owner, you need to oversee a variety of aspects and make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible, so that your customers are happy. Great food and services inspire customer loyalty and drive valuable revenue, which helps your business grow.

What should you look for in a reliable food supplier?
Ideally, you should be able to make an educated decision about your chosen food wholesalers, based on some key features. In reality, the process can involve quite a bit of trial-and-error. To avoid much of the exhausting guesswork and experimentation, here are some important qualities you should keep an eye on when choosing a wholesale food supply partner for your business:
Quality above all
Not even the most experienced chef in the world can prepare excellent dishes with bad quality ingredients. Therefore, more than anything, you need to choose a food supplier that will deliver top-quality wholesale products, so that your restaurant can in turn provide excellent quality food to its customers. This applies particularly to perishable goods such as produce, which needs extra care and attention from growing to delivery.
Best value for money
Buying wholesale is also ideal because it saves you money. When the costs of doing business are lowered, you can allocate more of your budget to helping your business expand and thrive. Look for wholesale food suppliers who offer reasonable pricing for their products and throw in some occasional promotions for new and/or loyal customers.
Experience in the industry
It can be challenging to earn a great reputation in the food industry. Only with time, experience and customer satisfaction can you hope to secure a top spot in the ranks. That applies to you as well as your food distributor. Choose a wholesaler with a strong reputation and solid experience in the industry to back their quality claims.
Communication and transparency
As we mentioned in the beginning, a great partnership with your wholesale food supplier is key to the success of your business (and your own peace of mind). However, as any other type of relationship, this one should be based on great communication and transparency, on both ends.
To that end, opt for wholesalers who are open about their product sourcing, the farms and/or brands they work with and other relevant details you need to be aware of for the sake of your business.
Large variety of products
Chances are you will need a lot of foodstuffs for your venue. The best way to go about it is to source everything (or as much as possible) from the same seller. On the one hand, this will save you time, energy and paperwork. On the other hand, if you’re working with a trusted wholesaler, then you’ll have the guarantee that all the products you buy are of prime quality.
For that to work, your food supplier of choice should be able to provide a large variety of products that you can use for your business. That includes produce, meats, dairy, consumables and much more.
