There are many reasons why stock may be considered surplus. For example, a supplier may have a cancelled or incorrect order, no space for new stock or a product might be close to code. This can leave primary producers, wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers with tonnes of surplus food and a lack of time or the contacts to re-sell it.
Suppliers provide product details and information to Yume, which is uploaded to the marketplace and made available to a growing network of buyers.
Buyers can sort products by category, price, best before date, deal size, and even receive notifications about new products that have been added to the platform. Products are sold at a minimum of 20% below regular wholesale prices.
Yume facilitates a seamless transaction between the buyer and supplier.
Yume helps to arrange the delivery of goods between the buyer and supplier at a time that is convenient for both parties.
Yume can facilitate donations to a growing network of registered food rescue organisations, helping ensure edible food gets to the people who need it most.
