2021’s US Foods third quarter report revealed an 11.5% surge in supply prices, yet restaurants still had high demand for the their’s products. This is a testament to the quality and value that US Foods provides. Despite this increase in cost, case shipments rose by 18.5%, with deliveries to independent restaurants increasing by 21.1%.

What is Food Purchasing Arbitrage?
Food Purchasing Arbitrage is the practice of leveraging price discrepancies in the food market to achieve cost savings and maximize profits. It involves identifying and capitalizing on variations in prices for the same or similar food products offered by different vendors or suppliers. By strategically purchasing from the lowest-cost source and taking advantage of favorable market conditions, businesses can optimize their procurement process and reduce expenses.
Food Purchasing Arbitrage typically involves thorough market research, price comparison, and negotiation with suppliers to secure the best possible deals. It may also involve taking advantage of rebates, discounts, or special offers provided by certain vendors. This approach allows businesses to source high-quality ingredients or products at lower prices, ultimately leading to increased profitability.
