UK: WSTA looks to flex purchasing muscle

By | 28 March 2006

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association has launched a procurement service for members.

The UK trade body, whose membership includes drinks producers, importers, brand owners and retailers, said yesterday (27 March) that the service had been designed to utilise members' purchasing power to make greater savings. The procurement service will look at energy, telecoms, insurance, waste collection, carriage, carrier bags, office supplies and other everyday business overheads.

"When I joined the WSTA I promised to improve the range of services that we provide our members," Jeremy Beadles, WSTA chief executive, said. "WSTA Procurement is an easy-to-use service that can deliver genuine savings and has a proven track record working with large and small companies in many different sectors.

"This is the first in a new range of membership services that will be launched over the coming months which will demonstrate our commitment to providing members with value-for-money.  I would urge members to take up the new service and contact us if they want to find out more."

The WSTA presently has over 200 members.
