Artisan Exchange Wholesale Distribution Services represents what an "Exchange"
is all about. For centuries Exchanges have brought together an assortment
of buyers wishing to purchase a variety of products. At Artisan Exchange
it means the opportunity to build genuine, solid, lasting relationships
between producers and buyers to provide delicious high quality food products
to a growing group of consumers seeking access to worldwide cuisine.
Artisan Exchange Distribution enables Wholesale Buyers to achieve their goal
of sourcing an array of high quality, locally produced, artisanally made
products that customers will ask for again and again. Access to dozens
of manufacturers from a range of cultural backgrounds ensures a steady flow
of unique products sought by a growing group of discerning customers.
The Artisan Exchange Team knows the food business and focuses on streamlining
the buying process to make each Buyer’s job easier. Our online order system
allows buyers to order from dozens of different food manufacturers,
through one purchase order, in one delivery, with
one invoice and support from one sales representative.
We continue to support our retail partners by featuring
their logos on our website where our loyal customers can find their
favorite brands and through engagements in our growing social media presence.
Our wholesale customers who prioritize sustainability appreciate our distribution model. Since most of these products are made in our food production facility
and loaded onto onsite delivery vehicles. With zero miles traveled to onload product
our carbon footprint is lower than any other distributor.
Artisan Exchange welcomes the opportunity to serve a diverse group of buyers.
From traditional Mom & Pop stores, to high end specialty gourmet food stores,
to large chains such as Whole Foods, to food service companies
providing on site dining and cafe services, Artisan Exchange serves them all.
One of the bigger challenges often faced by artisan food manufacturers
is gaining entry into retail outlets where they would like to see their products sold.
While many retailers are reluctant to take on new artisan food manufacturers
for a variety of reasons, wholesale buyers know Artisan Exchange as a respected
brand specializing in artisanally made products. Through Artisan Exchange's
wholesale distribution service, many barriers to entry are overcome.
An online order system provides multiple product lines to buyers and sends
purchase orders immediately to manufacturers. Services like order delivery,
invoicing and payment collection save manufacturers time and money.
Joining the Artisan Exchange wholesale distribution service enables artisan manufacturers to focus on creating efficient manufacturing practices,
lowering their costs while growing their business.
Artisan Exchange also represents and provides distribution services for other food manufacturers whose people, practices, and products meet the mission and values
of the Artisan Exchange way of doing business. If you are such a producer
and would like to join the Artisan Exchange community, please contact us.
