Comprehensive supplier engagement enhancing efficiency and risk management

Sweden's leading restaurant and wholesale specialist with daily deliveries of food, beverages, and equipment to nurseries, cafes, restaurants, and major hotel chains uses Worldfavor’s Sustainable Sourcing solution to simplify supplier follow-up and collect sustainability information in one place.


Before Worldfavor, the company manually collected all its sustainability data from over 1000 suppliers, creating inefficient administrative work. The company needed a system of managing and monitoring its suppliers to streamline processes and meet product sustainability requirements.


The company is currently using Worldfavor’s Sustainable Sourcing solution to collect data from their suppliers and get an intuitive overview. This solution makes follow-up on certificates and fulfillment of the code of conduct smooth.


Worldfavor streamlines processes, eliminates time-consuming manual work and personal dependencies, enables risk assessments, prevention, and mitigation. Overall, it’s easy to analyze data and stay up to date.


Sustainability scope and needs

The leading Sweden-based restaurant and wholesale specialist is headquartered in Stockholm with warehouses across the country. They offer daily deliveries of food, beverages, and equipment to nurseries, cafes, restaurants, major hotel chains, and others in both public and private sectors. Due to public procurement laws and high product demands, their unique customer base, and a wide variety of products sold and purchased globally, the company faces challenges impacting its sustainability work. Therefore they've chosen Worldfavor's Sustainable Sourcing solution to ensure that over 1000 suppliers meet product sustainability requirements.


“We used to work with supplier follow-ups manually. This was time-consuming and made it hard to search, find, and verify data. The process became very person-dependent and a business risk. After careful evaluation, we discovered that Worldfavor's solution matched our needs and requirements very well.”
