e-foods has already successfully served YHA for 4 years through its carefully managed network of local suppliers, a network that has proven capable of serving even the most difficult to reach sites. The shared values of supporting the local economy through local supply, an area that e-foods is expert in, cements the relationship.

“...Through e-foods we have our ideal supply chain and support at site level”

Massively reduced paperwork
YHA use e-foods' e-live online system that dramatically simplifies supplier administration with an end-to-end ordering, invoicing and payment solution. The system allows YHA to enjoy the benefits of local supply without the paperwork mountain and costs associated with managing such a large network.

Ideal Supply Chain
John McGrath, Head of Enterprise & Procurement for YHA (England and Wales) said “The system allows YHA to enjoy the benefits of local supply without the paperwork mountain and cost associated with managing such a large network. Sites place one consolidated order online and have access to a wealth of information, including intergrated menu costing, nutrition and allergen data.

Not only this but we've gained control of our purchasing that can be carefully monitored through the online system, a real win-win situation. Future, long term aspirations for the YHA are to further utilise the online portal for other product categories"

“Through e-foods we have our ideal
supply chain and support at site
level - something that is essential
as some sites really are off the
beaten track and need special
arrangements to get supplies to
them. Not only this but we've
gained control of our purchasing
that can be carefully monitored
through the online system.”
