As reported by NutraIngredients-USA, the platform had its soft launch in the spring of 2015, so has been up and running for almost a year, and also recently added ‘Annual Bid’ and ‘Blanket Order’ to consistently supply of quality ingredients with US Stock at factory direct prices
For the price matching program, customers can use the online platform to download QC docs, etc. and if they find the same ingredient from the same factory with US stock at a lower price, then the company will match that price, said ingredientsonline.com in a press release.
The idea behind ‘Annual Bid’ and ‘Blanket Order’ is to allow manufacturers to secure a pipeline of ingredients with a guarantee of a continuous supply from leading approved factories, said the company.
The factories and ingredientsonline.com will provide factory of origin documentation with full transparency to alleviate the burden of this consuming and costly activity, it added.
Ingredientsonline.com also now offers online purchase order processing to simplify workflows.
