Due to the current pandemic, the demand for food products has never been greater – but so are the challenges for getting those products to the consumer.
It’s a daunting task, but many businesses are stepping up, not only to help themselves, but to help ensure food reaches those communities who are finding it difficult to obtain.
That’s why every week we’re taking a look at the ways some of our Wholesale customers and friends in the industry are opening up their business to the public, and adapting the way they operate…
Leading mobile ordering app SwiftCloud are making life easier for their Wholesale customers with a B2C module on their B2B app. Wholesalers can simultaneously keep their trade customers happy and service local communities with the new function which allows them to continue to sell at trade prices via the app, but also offers a secondary module for end users only showing retail pricing.
