The information you share in your RFQ - or, Request for Quote - will influence the pricing your supplier will offer you. Below is a breakdown of each category and how to ensure you are providing your supplier so they can give you their best pricing information in the least amount of time.
Below is a breakdown of all the fields in our RFQ form
Please share the quantity you would like for your first order along with the units you’re requesting (lbs, kgs, gal, pallets, tons, etc.).
This information is helpful for suppliers to know whether this is a one-time order, or if you’ll be ordering monthly or at some other cadence.
Estimated Annual Volume
This is helpful for suppliers to understand if they can meet your needs for all of your ordering. While a single order may be below their MOQ, suppliers may be willing to work with you if your aggregated ordering volume meets their criteria.
If you have any initial questions or criteria for the product, we strongly recommend sharing those here. This could include questions about country of origin, spec requirements (mesh size, fat content, etc.), and certifications (organic, kosher, upcycled, and more).
Application / Intended Use
Suppliers may offer different specifications for each ingredient. Sharing the end product you intend to create (e.g. RTD beverage, granola bar, nutrition supplement, frozen meal kit, etc.) can help them ensure that they are offering you the right ingredient spec for your needs.
Request Delivery Date
While this field is not required, this information is helpful for suppliers to know whether they can serve you with products they already have in stock, or if they will have to order more product to meet your needs.
