Ingredients4U launches ingredient supply e-portal

On registering, users can search for products, check stock levels, and receive final quotes in real time, via unique log in details

Ingredients4U.com offers buyers, quality and supply chain managers, as well as those responsible for NPD and marketing products, a platform where it is possible to select, quality control and obtain a quote for supply, via a touch of a button. Whatever the ingredient requirements, the company says, users can access the sourcing platform, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

The ingredients platform offers a directory of products sourced from brands and companies across the globe. On registering, users can search for products, check stock levels, and receive final quotes in real time, via unique log in details. There is also a dedicated sales team available to answer questions online, via phone or tele conference.

As well as sourcing ingredients, users can download quality documentation and audit questionnaires from the site and its suppliers. All of this is downloadable, Ingredients4U says, allowing users to share data sheets with the wider quality control team. The site also includes additional certification such as whether the ingredient is Halal, Kosher, vegetarian or vegan certified, and these certificates can be printed out as part of the order.

The company maintains transparency in terms of its suppliers, offering source partner/supplier information, profiles and certification relating to individual ingredients.

The platform offers logistical support and shipping advice, enabling wider customer team members to manage and have flexibility in relation to when orders are placed and shipped, based on their individual needs.

Additionally, users can source trend reports to keep abreast of trading prices of certain ingredient which rise and fall depending on availability and usage trends, ensuring this platform offers a 360 degree service to its customer base.

All orders are shipped from Ingredients4U’s warehouse in the Netherlands. There are also warehouses in the USA and Asia, allowing the company to serve the global market.

It is a novel approach in our sector, but we believe it will transformation how the ingredients marketplace does business from now.”
