PRLog - March 11, 2014 - GATWICK, U.K. -- The Food Service Industry Council (FSI Council), the food industry membership body, publisher of nourish magazine, and the organiser of industry focused events, has launched, the Hub, an online directory that will serve the entire food service industry from farm to fork.
The Hub is designed to play host to companies all along the food supply chain, including food producers, food processing companies, food distributors, food wholesalers and equipment suppliers.
The site is designed for quick and simple sourcing of a local, regional, national product ambient, fresh or frozen or by supplier. It is envisaged that the users will include Chefs, Catering Managers, Facilities Mangers, School Bursars, Purchasing Groups, Procurement Agencies, Operations Managers, Event Organisers, Restaurants, QSR’s and Hotels .
The Hub offers genuine user interaction, with the opportunity for the user to communicate by text messaging, telephone, Twitter, Facebook and other social media, leave feedback, reviews and ‘starred’ ratings, based on experiences with specific suppliers.
A simple registration form system allows direct communication with the supplier. The Hub’s developers believe that it will grow to be one of the most efficient resources for fast, reliable sourcing. To give more detail on their product range, suppliers can even host their own literature, and current prices, discounts, delivery schedules and stock levels on the Hub which can only be seen by qualifying FSI members.
Commenting on the launch of The Hub, Ray Smith, Director General at the FSI Council said “The Hub opens the door to a genuinely national qualified audience of buyers and decision makers for suppliers across the whole of the UK”.
Basic listings are free of charge for all accredited suppliers to the food service industry. Suppliers can enter their details at http://www.fsicouncil.org/
