Join our producer network
Our relationships with producers are built on a commitment to promote honest and transparent dialogue about food.
Grow your business
We closed our Series A funding in summer 2021, and are rapidly expanding our market in cities across the UK and Europe.
You’ll gain a new sales representative and benefit from our marketing outreach; we love to share your stories and proactively match you with professional kitchens.
We take the pain of distribution off your hands. A dedicated purchasing manager will help you to match your products to customers; all you then need to do is deliver to our central warehouse (near Heathrow).
You can rest easy knowing your products are in good hands - our scheduled deliveries have a >99% success rate. We’ll even pay you on time and flexibly to your terms.
Be more sustainable
Collaboration is the key to a better food future. Our model helps us to collectively keep wastage below 2%, and every month we’ll share algorithm-based demand forecasts with you.
We’ll also help you to minimise your footprint, with our supply model emitting up to 50% less CO2 than traditional methods. With us, you can also trace your products from farm to fork, with full visibility on where they end up.
Who do we look for?
Food safety, traceability and a commitment to quality are key in our search for producer partners. We’re looking for you to be:
- Directly involved in the production of the products you sell
- Compliant with one or more food safety standard(s) recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative or SALSA
- Proud of the quality of your products, and committed to forming a better food system for all
What our partners say
"The efficiency of Collectiv’s logistics model has taken a massive weight off our shoulders. The benefit doesn’t only extend to us, it also makes our customers' lives easier, so it's a win-win."
“It’s refreshing to be working with a distributor that has such similar values in terms of sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of the food industry.”
“Collectiv have provided us with the reassurance of knowing exactly where our products end up, as well as connecting us with numerous like-minded restaurants and kitchens.”
Getting set up
We match you with a product request, ask for a quote and then share your samples with the customer
If they’re happy, we order - and then take care of everything from distribution to customer service and issue management
After the first month of trading, we’ll start sharing forecasts with you to improve efficiency and waste management
