Switch & Save with Musgrave MarketPlace

Products | 21st December 2018

Has your business discovered the savings to be made by switching to Musgrave Own Brands including Musgrave Excellence, Musgrave Professional, Musgrave Smart Buy, Simply Meat, Butchers Select and Exclusive Wines?

In November 2018, we challenged two of our FoodService customers to switch some of their key lines to our Own Brand products. The challenge resulted in both customers forecasting savings of between 17% and 35% per year by switching less then 10 products. Imagine the savings your business could make by switching more! Read on to find out which products our customers switched to and what they thought about making the switch.

Throughout this page, we also have an option to ‘Book A Taste Test’ where you can arrange to come into one of our local branches and taste a range of our Own Brands. Alternatively, you can contact our Head Development Chef, Clement Pavie to discuss what we can do for you – 086 858 8268
