COVID-19
Helping businesses to maintain financial discipline
As COVID-19 continues to impact the global economy in unprecedented ways, businesses worldwide are facing difficult decisions relating to cost control.

In such challenging times, taking short-term reactive measures is inevitable however, as past financial crises have shown, businesses that deployed strategic and sustainable cost reduction strategies significantly outperformed the competition. In fact, many emerged as strong and profitable winners.

New challenges need new ways of thinking; and the decisions and actions you take now will determine your business’s ability to weather these unprecedented levels of uncertainty.

That’s where Regency Purchasing Group can help...
MARKET PRICE ANALYSIS
Releasing cost savings with speed and agility
We can release the untapped value from your supply chain almost immediately to deliver cost savings that are so vitally important to your business’s recovery and survival.
Our market price analysis includes:
  • Understanding your specific business goals and ethos
  • Analysing costs, product quality and service levels from all suppliers
  • Negotiating new and existing product prices
  • Recommending new local and national suppliers
  • Sourcing alternative, better value products
  • Delivering rapid cost savings.
SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Maximising your supplier relationships
With numerous suppliers operating at reduced capacity or ceasing to trade, businesses are currently faced with supplier agreements that are no longer operationally fit for purpose, contracts that are not reflecting the new commercial norms, and situations where, due to intense competition, they find themselves in a ‘sellers’ market’.
Our supply chain management service includes:
  • Analysing purchasing requirements and understanding demand levels
  • Recognising operational sensitivities and providing immediate solutions
  • Reviewing existing supplier contracts and Service Level Agreements
  • Identifying available and reactive suppliers
  • Establishing sustainable operational disciplines
  • Limiting price increases to an absolute minimum.
PRODUCT CATEGORIES
Achieving the best value across all categories
Unlike many purchasing partners, we work with an extensive and trusted network of suppliers across a wide range of categories. We can help you achieve the best value without compromising on quality. We also work with members to help them source bespoke and specialist items.
We can source products from the following categories:
  • Food incl. frozen, fresh and grocery
  • Drink incl. alcohol, coffee and soft drinks
  • Cleaning, janitorial, safety and hygiene products (including PPE)
  • Catering and industrial equipment, incl. servicing and maintenance
  • Payment solutions and terminals
  • Waste management
  • Utilities.
SUSTAINABILITY
Working with you to reduce your environmental impact
Sustainability is becoming an increasing focus for both businesses and consumers. With increases in regulations and consumer awareness, our team can help you implement changes to significantly reduce your environmental impact.
Our sustainability services include:
  • Eliminating single-use products
  • Forward planning and demand level forecasting
  • Reducing waste and maximising associated cost savings
  • Minimising food miles and delivery frequencies
  • Identifying sustainable products and suppliers.
POST-TENDER SUPPORT
An ongoing partnership to deliver long-term benefits
We operate a fully-integrated, partnership approach, working as an extension of your business or procurement department to deliver long-term benefits.

Our team continuously strives to further maximise savings, improve quality and service and identify new opportunities and ways of innovation. This ongoing post-tender support service is enhanced by our Regency IQ solution, available to all members to ensure that you continue to maintain financial and operational discipline, while allowing you to focus on meeting the needs of your customers.

Springbok BBQ, Berkshire

Our purchasing is more streamlined since becoming a Regency member and the Regency IQ system helps us control our purchasing, along with the visibility of our invoices. Regency has also helped us with our menu planning, which has not only saved us money, but saved so much time, which for us as operators is precious.

Seckford Golf Club, Suffolk

Regency Purchasing Group is a company who really assists you with getting the best for your business. Our Procurement Manager took our comments onboard and it was like having a full-time food and beverages regional manager.

I was a little sceptical at first, but I’m glad I took time out and listened to what Regency had to offer us. They have been extremely informative and knowledgeable throughout.

Jump Evolution, Essex

Regency advised us of a new partner supplier they had taken on for credit card services. We provided our merchant services statements and received a prompt turnaround with a quote for almost 20% savings vs. our current provider.

Rules Restaurant, London

We started working with Regency Purchasing group in 2016 and what a brilliant decision it was! My husband and I have formed such a good working relationship with our Procurement Manager that we can’t imagine him not being a part of our business.

I have been put in contact with great local and national suppliers, getting better rates than I could ever find myself. On the rare occasion I have had an issue with a supplier, the Regency team have dealt with it in an instant.

The Hungry Guest, West Sussex

Regency has taken a load off me - they've streamlined our ordering offering true help to the F&B staff and the Regency team has been able to slash my costs! They have done what my suppliers said they would do, but didn’t.

Jump Inc, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Regency Purchasing Group has helped us with food tasting days and advised us to create a more focused menu. Working alongside the team at Regency, we've been able to get our GPs right for each of our products.

Superbowl UK, Nationwide

Our Procurement Manager has been a huge help, not only has he analysed all our spending and helped us save money in areas outside of just purchasing, he has also introduced us to new product lines and best of all, got us onto a great loyalty scheme.

Regency Purchasing Group has, and continues to, save me a lot of money on my cleaning and disposable purchases. It frees up my time to get on with running my business more efficiently instead of constantly look at prices.

Port Lympne Reserve, Kent

The team illustrated a 'black and white' saving of 12% on our food, drink and non-food costs. We would highly recommend Regency Purchasing Group - like minded operators with exceptional ability to help us control and manage what we do.

Swithens Farm, Yorkshire

We know we're not one of the 'big accounts' for Regency, however we have never been made to feel that we are any less important. In all honesty, Regency has been a god send(!), especially when I've had difficult suppliers who just don't get their acts together.

Jungle VIP, Middlesex

When we partnered with Regency, we regained control. Now, I see Regency more as a department of our own company; more than just a supplier. They've supported us with not only our purchasing needs, but also our customer service and they can quickly adapt when we acquire new venues.

Butcombe Brewing Co., South West

We're very pleased with the price stability, product advice and support we have received. Their access to competitive pricing, together with their bench marking ability, has made a big difference to our competitiveness.

They've provided, and even tailored solutions for PPE and hand sanitiser stations and the level of service has been exceptional during this unprecedented time.

Starting any new business is always a huge task, but with the help and continued support of Regency, the pressure of confirming the best suppliers and finalising our menu was completely alleviated. Our assigned Procurement Manager is incredible and has gone above and beyond for us.
