Customer Testimonials

Foodbuy has provided our camp with a tremendous annual financial benefit. We were also surprised and impressed by the number of times we took advantage of their advice and willingness to advocate on our behalf.”

Camp Co-owner and Director

I would recommend the Foodbuy program to any camp large or small. The process to join the Foodbuy program is simple, flawless and pain free. We have been on the program for two months and have realized several thousands of dollars in savings on purchases plus we have received rebate cheques from national brands.”

Camping Association President

The Culinary Solutions Team at Foodbuy is a win-win for everyone involved and we look forward to expanding the program for years to come. ”

President, Group Purchasing Organization

The Culinary Solutions Team at Foodbuy worked with us to establish targets and goals to drive commitment and compliance with our committed members. This yielded significant savings for our members while simultaneously driving value to the supplier community.”

President, Group Purchasing Organization

When we joined the Foodbuy program, it didn’t cost us a thing. The Foodbuy folks navigated us through the process, connecting the program to our food supplier. In total, for all of our properties, we have received in excess of $30,000.”

Resort Owner

For many years, we had been negotiating direct and integrated relationships with many vendors and distributors as an internal function of the business. When Foodbuy approached us as a procurement partner we had our doubts that they could provide much more value than what we were achieving on our own. Since collaborating and partnering with Foodbuy, we’ve seen dramatic improvement to our food cost by rationalizing SKUs, building compliancy and growing our annual rebate revenue year over year.”
