Meet the Buyer with Greencity Wholefoods

Market development

Greencity Wholefoods, in partnership with Scotland Food & Drink, is pleased to offer an opportunity for Scottish producers to present their products to the buying team.

A wholesaler of fine food to both the retailing and catering trade, from corner shops, farm shops and specialist retailers to cafes, restaurants, museums and universities, across Scotland and the north of England for more than 40 years, Greencity prides itself on the quality and ethics of its products and is looking to enhance its already strong portfolio of Scottish lines.

It has a very strong distribution network, marketing function and social media presence, giving producers the support and time they need to help them grow. It boasts a diverse range of customers who know they can find unique products that are difficult to find elsewhere.

Being a workers co-operative, Greencity also has strong links within the co-operative movement and can introduce businesses to other like-minded wholesalers south of the border if UK-wide distribution is something that is aspired to.

WHAT GREENCITY IS LOOKING FOR

  • Greencity is open-minded and would welcome interest from businesses with innovative products (produced in Scotland and/or with Scottish ingredients)– something different within its category
  • Also especially interested in raw ingredients (whether that be, for example, seaweed, Scottish grown grains, pulses or fruit), as opposed to finished branded products for retail, and therefore is keen to hear from growers, foragers and farmers.
  • Producers with high sustainability credentials is extremely important
  • Suppliers of Scottish oat ‘mylk’ and Scottish tofu
  • The latest vegan products

Note that companies must have the capacity to gear up to satisfy demand and increased volumes, as required.
