Your dedicated Equinoxe Solutions Account Manager is always available to help you with any queries you may have. We want you to receive the best service as well as the best prices.
Why can’t I get these lower prices?
Equinoxe Solutions is able to use the combined volume of all our customers to negotiate great prices. You would not be able to achieve these on an individual basis.
How much can I expect to save by using to Equinoxe Solutions?
There is no guaranteed saving as obviously it will depend on which suppliers you are using and what prices you are paying currently . However, we would aim to achieve a 15% saving on your food and non food spend. A price comparison is free of charge and without any obligation.
