Twenty-four months ago, HPG converted from Entegra Food Service to FoodBuy as the Food Procurement & Distribution Management Services. FoodBuy is a $20+ billion company with the advantage to drive contractual spend. They aligned with Sysco, Gordon Food Service, and US Foods as primary vendors and multiple regional vendors in categories:
These regional vendors allow for local marketing involvement and improved freshness of these commodities. The challenge is that purchasing these products directly from Sysco, Gordon Food, or US Foods is considered off-contract spend.
Comparing three (3) months of purchases and rebates from when we transitioned to FoodBuy to your contract spend and rebates now, we observe that our contract purchases have increased by 30% or $926,856, but the rebates have increased by 66% or $98,215 for an average rate of 6.2% on all sales.
