Cedabond builds the profits and dividends as we progress throughout the year, in preparation for the annual distribution of dividends.

The process of applying Cedabond offers a true partnership that delivers growth in business and profit. It is not necessary to deal with all Suppliers to gain the financial rewards. All Members benefit irrespective of their speciality in the marketplace. There are Members that concentrate on contracts, one off catering equipment supply or light equipment. Each enjoys extra profit from their Cedabond Membership. So you can see the potential financial benefits before joining, Cedabond asks you to supply your previous year’s spend with each Supplier in confidence. Then, the financial benefit is calculated and provided to you in writing. After you join, your purchasing department would experience minimal change as the daily 6  www.cedabond.co.uk

responsibility for ordering and supplying of product remains between the Supplier and each Member. Your accounts department would conveniently make one monthly payment through Cedabond central payments. This requires Members to make one payment for the Cedabond Suppliers they have dealt with at pre-determined dates each month. Cedabond negotiates and administers annual Supplier agreements, on behalf of and for the benefit of all Members. Cedabond builds the profits and dividends as we progress throughout the year, in preparation for the annual distribution of dividends.


Success stories We have been Members of Cedabond for many years. The principle advantage of being in Cedabond is that we are able to benefit, as Members, to purchasing discounts as part of a much larger group. As part of our commitment to strict payments terms we are also able to benefit from from annual retro payments. Nick Oryino Carford Group Ltd

We have been Members of CEDABOND since 1984 and really believe its a great Association to be part of. It helps with Supplier discounts and negotiations, but honestly the main benefit of being a Member is the cheque we receive at the end of the year, its pure profit – and that’s great!

We have a strong working relationship with CEDABOND based on the very positive benefits it delivers to all parties. The guarantee of payment in good time – especially in an uncertain economic climate – has to be a major bonus for any catering equipment company.
