The leader in foodservice redistribution launches a new website with product search and online ordering functionality.

(PHILADELPHIA, PA) April 16, 2013 — Honor Foods, one of the largest and most trusted foodservice redistribution companies in the mid Atlantic, is happy to announce the roll out of their new product search and online ordering website. The new website was created to provide an online portal for Honor Foods’ customers to view inventory and order products. The new online search and ordering portal can be found on honorfoods.com and allows customers to find products based on vendor name, category, product number or keyword and order directly from the website.

The Honor Foods website was launched in two phases. Phase I was launched in December of 2012 and features a new design and more information about the Honor Foods brand. Phase II, the product search and online ordering phase, was rolled out over the past month. The new search and ordering features on the Honor Foods website will help modernize all transactions. Customers can now quickly search for a product and see results from the extensive product database instantly on the new website. The site also contains product specifications and other important information for Honor Foods’ 6,000+ products.

All orders can now be processed through the Honor Foods website to allow for streamlined transactions. Once an online ordering account is created, customers can view their last 10 order tickets automatically to help them build future orders faster. The categorized database and online ordering portal makes finding a product and ordering it fast, easy and efficient.

Honor Foods’ new site was built by web developers at ab+c in Wilmington, Delaware in partnership with Drexel Management. Dave Pomroy, a computer programmer for Honor Foods, also worked on developing the site along with the Honor Foods leadership team: Lisa Kriger (Marketing), Rory Kileen (Sales), Rick D'Egidio (Purchasing), Wendy Singer (Analyst), and Joe Windfelder (Director of IT).

To begin ordering online today, customers can speak with their inside or outside sales representatives to create a private online business account. Once a customer has an account they can order instantly. If you are a customer and would like additional training on the website’s key features, contact Honor Foods to set up a walk-through today: 800-462-2890 or visit honorfoods.com/Contact.

About Honor Foods
Honor Foods was founded in 1949 as a redistributor of center-of-the-plate foods based in Philadelphia, PA. The company has since grown into the region’s premier provider of grocery, frozen and dairy products, representing more than 275 brand-name food suppliers and carrying more than 2,500 items in stock. In addition, their exclusive house brands — Colony Lane, Valley Fresh, St. Honorine and Misty Harbor — have a well-earned reputation for top quality and value at a very competitive price. Honor Foods also offers superior customer service, customized reporting and distribution channel troubleshooting. In 2007, Burris Logistics acquired Honor Foods. Even though the Logistics business is different, Burris works with many of the same vendors and now both companies are able to leverage their existing relationships, strengthen strategic partnerships, and improve purchasing positions. In 2009 Honor and Burris Logistics added a new specialty dairy division by joining N. Winer and Son, of Springfield Massachusetts to the Burris family, thus adding a second located to Honor Foods’ facilities and helping the company better serve the east coast.
