As the UK’s largest wholesale buying group with a combined turnover of over £8bn, we work closely with our supplier partners to provide an efficient and sustainable route to market that drives distribution and market share growth for your brands across our membership.
Our central negotiations and terms is underpinned by a joint business plan which embodies all of our key principles, and delivers many commercial benefits and opportunities for our supplier partners.
Effective delivery of brand plans, sharing insights, data and networking events are just some of the ways we help suppliers execute their brand campaigns.
We value the long-term, meaningful relationships we have developed with suppliers to ensure we are your preferred partner. We are committed to developing and maintaining relationships built on shared and common objectives, mutual trust and respect, honest communication and flexibility.
However, don’t just take our word for it – we’ve been ranked the No.1 buying group in the Advantage Report Survey for the second year in a row, as voted for by suppliers*
Key to building long term relationships with our supplier partners is our Supplier Council, which meet quarterly to exchange feedback from the wider supplier community.
By working together we can gain a better understanding of each other’s businesses for more effective joint planning and stronger outcomes.
Representing more than 300 retail, foodservice and on-trade suppliers from all the major product categories, the Unitas Supplier Council is tasked with several key objectives, including gathering feedback on challenges and opportunities to help shape our future initiatives.
“Last years Trade Show was a great opportunity for us to meet all members in one place, which was cost effective and allowed us to deliver our full year plan in a more open and informal business surrounding. With the orders I have received so far, we have already exceeded last year’s impressive sales!”
