From day 1, UKFoodWeb was designed to support and nurture the craft, artisan and SME food sector.

At our core, our mandate: Supporting SME producers and helping to get your products from concept to customer.

To help, we’ve partnered with some of the best industry-recognised companies, large and small to solve common, shared challenges with design & production, supply chain & logistics, product labelling and allergens reporting so you can concentrate on making and selling.

We try to take the strain, helping save you the pain.

FEATURES EXPLAINED

Starter

Create a detailed business profile to tell your story, get customers engaged by helping them understand your business and how you operate. We help you describe your vision, your ethics, then add video, images, recipes, accreditations such as organic soil association or vegan and include contact details to give a complete overview.

Your Profile will appear in all map searches, as well as in national searches for the product categories, across categories that match the products you produce.

Your business profile will appear in all local and national product category searches, across categories that match the products you produce.

Your business profile will appear in searches on membership groups that your business is affiliated with. By looking at a membership group, customers can see your business profile and the categories of products you offer for sale. If you have a product catalogue, customers can also view all of the products you offer for sale.

Embed a direct link to your social media channels within your business profile page, giving direct access to your latest news and driving customer engagement. An embedded share widget allows customers to share your profile and products with their friends from directly within your profile or product pages.

Each business profile has a unique UKFoodWeb smart QR code, which can be printed by producers or retailers and used at point of sale or on menus. Scanning this on a smartphone opens a mobile optimised page to tell consumers about your business and your accreditations.

All members are invited to join the UKFoodWeb affiliate programme. We hope you love us so much you’ll tell others about us, to say thanks for each new paid subscriber we will give you £20 in UKFoodWeb credit.

Your Content Goes Here

Standard

Profile and products will be visible in all product pages and product searches across all users types within the UKFoodWeb site.

Add an unlimited number of products across all categories to create a complete product catalogue. These will all be indexed and fully searchable and filterable by, for instance, allergens across all pages and views in UKFoodWeb.

Profile and products will be affiliated with and visible in any membership association pages that you are a member of. We also partner with Membership Associations to provide them with a view of the same data on their own website, including map search, search by producer name or product name or by category.

Every product has a unique QR code that, when scanned using a mobile, opens a mobile optimised page about your product including a carousel of images, allergen alerts / information, nutrition label, detailed product information, embedded marketing images, video and even your recipe ideas. Soon, you will also be able to add offers and coupons.  Perfect for point of sale or supply chain support.

All of our product data conforms to the internationally recognised GS1 product:DNA product data model. Meaning, we conform to the precise wording required for each global territory. We use this to translate your product data into the languages of each of the UK’s core export markets.

If you want to add or edit products in bulk, you can use a CSV template to manage the process quickly and painlessly. We also process and optimise product images in bulk via a zip file to save you time and make life as painless as possible.

Add videos, images and even pdfs of recipe ideas and serving suggestions for any product or for your business profile.

Add your own Google Analytics tracking code to see and track user activity on your pages. Create remarketing campaigns to actively engage people who have viewed at engaged with your pages on UKFoodWeb.

Need barcodes or a product listing with a multiple retailer? In which you will need a GS1 account. We’ve partnered with GS1 to offer a discounted 1st year subscription to GS1 (for new GS1 members) for £50+VAT, including 10 barcodes. If that’s not enough barcodes, let us know and we will add another 10.

Create detailed products listings, including product data, marketing information such as video, images and recipe ideas for consumers as well as information needed for retail on online marketplace listings. You have complete control over third-party access, and retailers can export in their own data format – a single source of product data across your entire customer base and supply chain – in 8 supported languages!

Add product data as to allergen ingredient presence or trace presence to the product, and we will take care of the rest. Create allergen labels, provide point-of-sale & supply chain awareness via your unique barcode or UKFoodWeb QR smart code on shelf hangers, restaurant menus or farmers markets.

Add your own nutrition data and nutrition label and traffic light label images, or take advantage of our integration with a la calc to completely cover every worry about creating EU and USA compliant labels. Simply use the a la calc system to create your product or recipe, and at the click of a button import everything from the list of ingredients, allergens, nutrition values, vitamins and minerals as well as labels and more.

A complete real-time business messaging platform has been built into UKFoodWeb, including translation support for over 24 languages. Business customers can directly contact producers to raise questions, discuss commercial arrangements and pricing – including attaching files. All secured with 256-bit encryption, and GDPR compliant. A secure company to company messaging platform at no additional cost.

Your profile page has a different form for consumers and guest users than trade, as they – and you – probably have different needs. Consumers are less time- sensitive, and so we provide an enquiry form that can be answered when other work pressures are not so pressing, or you can delegate to your marketing team. You can optionally receive an email and a push notification alert to your mobile or desktop when a question is raised.

We have partnered with a leading ‘chatbot’ provider to help you provide efficient customer support without tying up your time. Customers get most of their standard questions answered by the ‘conversational chatbot’. You have complete control of this powerful service, which can be used at any customer touchpoint not just on UKFoodWeb. Seriously powerful – with the ability for customers to arrange for callbacks, request a search on order progress, arrange a callback or call you on WhatsApp or phone.  We have tips on how you can convert these into valuable customers, all with little or no effort. An amazing timesaver!

Every page has a social share widget for users, making it easy for them to share your product or business profile on their own social profile or to direct share with friends. Each company profile page also hosts links to your social media channels, so customers and access these with ease.

Time is always precious, but with support for team invites you can invite a trusted third party to your UKFoodWeb account, limited by the role you set, and allow them to manage some or all of your account for you.

Manage permissions access to parts of your account by assigning users a role, from full administrator access, product manager or marketing manager. You can change the user role at any time, as well as stop access if needed.
