Direct Purchasing Agreements.

Such agreements with suppliers provide high quality produce on a net-net basis. This method of purchasing avoids the unnecessary costs to clients brought about by retro discount, early settlement payment and profit related purchasing. This allows suppliers and product costs to be measured against market price, ensuring our clients receive the best available value. To date in the tender process, AQCMS Limited has proved to be the only contract caterer in the UK that operates such a purchasing agreement. It is company policy that any supplier audited to less than A grade by the meat and livestock commission will not be used.
