At Honor Foods in Philadelphia, PA, the relationship we build with our food vendors is essential in our food redistribution business’s productivity, efficiency, and profitability. So when vendors ask why they should choose Honor Foods, a Burris Logistics Company, the answer is because we MAKE IT HAPPEN as experts in redistribution at Honor Foods. 

Redistribution is not an easy industry; we know first hand the challenges that are faced. However, our Purchasing Team is willing to go the extra mile to ensure we meet vendors’ unique needs when they choose to work with us. We are one of the Mid-Atlantic’s largest, most well-trusted foodservice redistribution companies. This means flexibility, competitive prices, fast delivery, attentiveness, responsiveness, and accuracy have to be a part of our supply chain process. 

Our Team makes all of this happen for us. Our Purchasing Team is a massive asset in fulfilling the standards and expectations we have set as an organization.

Why do vendors partner with us at Honor Foods? 

One reason vendors choose to partner with us at Honor Foods is our Purchasing Team. Our Team is an experienced group of individuals that know exactly what is important to our vendor partners. We strive to be easy to work with, keeping it simple, and our expertise to MAKE IT HAPPEN.

“What we do at Honor Foods is make sure your needs are met and make sure we work hand and hand with our Sales Team to make sure everything that is important to you is important to us,” Joe Adams, VP of Sales and Purchasing.

There are multiple reasons, and Rick D’Egidio, Director of Purchasing, does a great job explaining pricing, which is another one of the reasons why vendors partner with us.

“Since costs are high to service small, LTL orders, manufacturers use Honor Foods to manage their customers that can not order in large quantities. To keep the warehouse, shipping, and accounting costs down, manufacturers ship larger orders to Honor and then Honor inventories each item and ships smaller amounts to their distributor customers. Not only does this relationship provide cost savings to the manufacturer, but it also creates market penetration by allowing access to distributors that may not have been able to create large enough direct shipments,” D’Egidio.

“Burris gives Honor the ability to adapt to ongoing industry constraints and provide a larger geographic footprint than most other redistributors in the industry, “Rick D’Egidio, Director of Purchasing.

Our parent company, Burris Logistics, is an additional solution for us to provide a high level of service at Honor Foods. They can provide financial investment opportunities and additional end-to-end supply chain support that most regional redistributors do not have. They offer assistance with funding a larger warehouse, consistent freight management options, temperature-controlled warehousing options throughout the east coast and midwest, or upgrading our logistics technology to serve our partners and vendors’ needs better. 

“Burris gives Honor the ability to adapt to ongoing industry constraints and provide a larger geographic footprint than most other redistributors in the industry,” D’Egidio.

Our vendors and partners should expect simplicity, expertise, wholehearted effort to assist with their business’s growth, and general supply chain support. In addition, we want relationships to be beneficial with our partners and vendors.

“Our manufacturers can expect a true partner. We really want to be an extension of them and believe in being honest and transparent, so they know what’s going on with their business,” Erin Macnabb, Buyer.
