Independent Liquor Group has announced the launch of the Liquor Co-op Warehouse, its own B2B marketplace platform.
The platform aims to be a ‘one stop shopping experience’ for all companies holding a liquor license across NSW, by helping the liquor industry connect and conduct business via a simplified online ordering system. On its launch, the platform is said to offer over 5,000 drinks across all categories at wholesale prices.
ILG developed the Liquor Co-op Warehouse in response to the growing market of companies that simply want to purchase what they need, when they need it, with no strings or joining fees attached. This platform is designed to offer an ideal solution for these trade customers, who might not need the space or enroute services that ILG already efficiently provides.
Paul Esposito, CEO of ILG, spoke about the impending launch at the recent ILG 2022 Family Reunion, noting how the Liquor Co-op Warehouse also aims to reduce the incidence of independent businesses purchasing from national chains or other third-party operators. This is in line with the co-operative’s mission of longevity for the independent community.
Speaking about the platform going live, Esposito said: “This initiative is designed to give hotels, bars, restaurants, and others in the liquor industry better buying opportunities with freight free options.”
Another element of the Liquor Co-op Warehouse that ILG has highlighted is how it is the ‘ultimate hybrid shopping experience’, combining online convenience and the expertise of human customer service, with a dedicated team available to chat specifically about your enquiry.
