This UK company is a pet food & wild bird food retailer and wholesaler. The company has been trading since 2004 and
sells both from physical locations, via a number of market stalls in regional towns, and on line. They have built up an extensive customer base and seek to expand their product lines and order quantities as their market share increases.
The main products and volumes (40 foot container loads) required are peanuts (for wild birds), 3 x containers per year,
sunflower hearts / kernals (for wild birds), 2 x containers per year, bakery grade kernals, mixed wild bird seed, 2 x containers per year
The customer also requires a range of wild bird feeders, 1 x container per year.
Currently the wild bird food is mostly imported into the country via agents and the company would be keen to speak directly to manufacturers or growers. This could potentially help in achieving some cost savings. The company could also help suppliers solve any overstock by providing an outlet for end of line or short dated product etc.
It is expected stock will be stored in a warehouse which is clean, dry, protected from light and moisture, has a constant temperature, with pest control systems in place. The seed should be stored in a way that secures if from destruction, on pallets etc.
The company anticipates a long relationship with suppliers who can provide the products required.
