Welcome to 2019
We have some exciting changes coming this year, so be sure to keep your contact details up to date, both here and in SRM.
Foodstuffs wishes you a successful trading year in 2019 via the Foodstuffs eXchange.
Foodstuffs Annual Price and Product Moratorium
Foodstuffs Group will again be requesting a moratorium on new Products and Price Changes during the busy Christmas period.
Please log in to see the moratorium details and dates.
Foodstuffs eXchange Updated Terms and Conditions
We have recently updated the terms and conditions governing use of the eXchange Website and B2B system. Continuing to use the site is an acceptance of these updated terms and conditions. You can download these here.
Advance Shipping Notes are Business Critical
To enable our Inwards Goods and Supply Chain to operate at maximum efficiency, the CONFIRMATION of Purchase Orders on the eXchange is Business Critical. Ensure that when your goods are picked for dispatch, you update the Send Quantity on the Purchase Order screen and then click the Confirm Delivery button. B2B integrated suppliers can also do this by sending an Advanced Shipping Note / ASN. All orders should be confirmed prior to the goods being delivered.
We ask all Suppliers to ensure that their processes are robust to ensure this is occurring at present. We also ask you to review that cover is available for staff absence and holidays, especially over the busy summer season.
Deliveries not Confirmed prior to delivery cause your stock not to reach our picking areas in a timely fashion. This can result in your goods missing delivery to Stores and lost sales to all parties, and for direct store deliveries it will slow down the inwards good process.
If you cannot manage this request please contact the eCommerce Implementer in your area for further advice.
Supplier Relationship Management
Great relationships are built on good communication. To achieve good communication we believe the first start is for all parties to be able to easily access reliable contact information.
The reality is we all develop and try to manage our own databases. Whilst disciplines drive the success of our internal contact databases it's an ongoing challenge to eliminate duplication and integrity issues with managing those ever changing external details.
Foodstuffs would like to share with you our latest initiative, a single national Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) contacts database.
You can find out more about SRM and how to register here.

Foodstuffs eXchange National Policy
In 2007 Foodstuffs undertook a major review of its internal processes and one of the outcomes was the generation of a new National policy in regards to the Foodstuffs eCommerce platform.
