IngredientsDirect.com launches in response to B2B trend towards online purchase of ingredients
According to 2020 research by McKinsey & Company, more than 75% of UK B2B buyers say they now prefer purchasing online over traditional face-to-face interactions.
IngredientsDirect.com was launched in response to a growing number of businesses choosing to source and procure materials through online channels, reducing the lead time between purchase and delivery.
IngredientsDirect.com offers easy access to quality assured nutritional, supplement, nutraceutical and sports science ingredients. All products are held in stock in the company’s UK warehouse and are shipped directly to customers in 2-3 business days.
Having successfully completed a pilot of the new B2B eCommerce offering in October, IngredientsDirect.com is now open for business to companies across the UK.

The company plans to expand its range of ingredients over the coming months, and currently offers quantities of 20-200kg for the majority of available ingredients.
Registered users will gain access to stock and pricing data, as well as the ability to download product specifications for each available ingredient. Certificates of Analysis are also available for any purchased ingredients.
