Lewisco Holdings provides the solution needed for buyers or sellers of bulk food inventory.

A History of Success Reflected in Reputation

Food Inventory Buyers New YorkThe successful history of Lewisco Holdings is evident by our reputation. Throughout our time in business, we have developed best practices, a loyal and long lasting customer base, a dedicated carrier team, and thirteen warehouses from one coast to another. Lewisco Holdings is known for fair dealing, speedy transactions, discretion, and strong customer support.

The Wide Array of Lewisco Holdings’ Inventory

Lewisco Holdings has the capacity to deal in a wide variety of merchandise categories, ranging from groceries to HBA products, paper products, cleaning implements and chemicals, non-alcoholic beverages, and pet foods and treats. With this broad inventory, we can provide purchase options for a variety of buyers.

The ratio of buyers to sellers is low for a reason. We need many sources in order to fully meet the needs of our buyers, and we have to carefully screen each buyer option. We buy from 3,000+ first-line customers, and we sell to just over 400 alternate customers.

The goal of Lewisco Holdings is to minimize waste, provide the largest possible return on the initial product investment, and help buyers gain quality goods at low, low prices.

Situations that merit liquidation range from slight damage to past expiration dates. Examples include:

  • Older versions of products with new packaging or formulations
  • Overstocked products
  • Closeouts and markdowns
  • Outdated or almost expired inventory
  • Seasonal, holiday, or promotional product lines
  • Discontinued product lines
  • All slow-moving goods regardless of reason

Liquidation needs to happen sooner rather than later. Waiting too long will mean that the product becomes completely useless, and we won’t be able to purchase it. The longer the wait, the less return you’ll receive as well.

The process at Lewisco Holdings straightforwardly buys and sells surplus goods. When we make these purchases, we send a quick offer, immediate payment upon agreement, and collection of goods that day or the next.

For an offer, we simply need the following information about the products in question:

  • Photographs
  • Label and name brand
  • List of ingredients
  • Nutrition facts
  • All dates on the inside and outside of the package
  • Package size
  • Units/case, case/pallet, pallet/load
  • Collection location
  • Preferred price

Distribution commences quickly following collection of the items. We’ll target the most appropriate buyers within our buyer group for acquisition.

Who are our buyers?

Since we at Lewisco Holdings do not sell to first-line distributors like restaurants, supermarkets, or convenience stores, our target market is the alternative channel of customers. Our efforts protect brand identity, our clients’ reputations, and the original customer bases, and we do so by requiring that Lewisco buyers avoid display, advertising, wholesaling, or violating geographic boundaries. Additionally, we provide Mabel’s Farms, our own private label for repackaging services.

Examples of the typical Lewisco buyer include privately owned small grocery stores, dollar stores, specialty shops, prisons/jails, flea market vendors, farmers markets, schools, deep-discount salvage grocery stores, and other alternative entities.
