Hider Foods and Delishops have joined forces to create online shops for independent retailers pre-stocked with 1,000s of products held and dispatched by Hider. It is designed to give Farm Shops, Delis and other independent businesses the ability to safely earn revenue and keep serving their customers in this turbulent time, even if they are closed.
Hider Foods has been serving the independent community for many decades and sees corona as the biggest threat to the businesses they serve since they started up importing nuts and seeds 70 years ago. The independent retail community are not only the majority of Hider’s customers, many are long time collaborators and have become personal friends. Therefore making Retailers an essential part to the next evolution of Hider Foods is central to Duncan’s vision. With Corona this has now become critical and urgent.
Using the Delishops network maintains the wholesaler to retailer to customer journey, yet embraces the innovation in 21st century consumer demand. More than that - right now it is a strong and valuable contribution to keeping the industry alive.
This joint venture between Hider Foods and Delishops was originally due to launch later in 2020 - brought forward due to Corona to help Retailers continue to serve their customers and generate income at a very difficult time.
