Good Faith Receiving

Good Faith Receiving employs intelligent processes and expert resource to take the unknown out of the supply chain…

Good Faith Receiving (GFR) is a comprehensive approach that leverages the power of intelligent processes and expert resources to effectively eliminate uncertainties within the intricate web of supply chain operations. In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, having a reliable GFR solution in place is essential for businesses operating in the UK and Europe, particularly within the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), do-it-yourself (DIY), and wholesale sectors.

As sole suppliers to 8 of the UK’s top 10 supermarket chains our commitment to excellence positions us as the UK and Europe’s only end-to-end GFR solution which is tailored to the unique needs and challenges of clients across these diverse markets. Our primary objective is to empower businesses to meticulously assess and analyse the performance of their suppliers, thereby driving improvements in supply chain efficiency and ultimately increasing product sales.

Our commitment to maintaining the highest industry standards is reflected by being the only supplier acknowledged by the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA). We pride ourselves on being GSCOP friendly (Groceries Supply Code of Practice), our colleagues are GSCoP trained and members of the CIIA. We are also the only supplier to be invited to regularly attend the Drop & Drive Workgroup, and already have successfully onboarded more than 700 grocery suppliers.

One of the compelling aspects of our service is its cost-neutral nature. While some may be concerned about the initial investment, the efficiencies gained and savings generated by optimising your supply chain with GFR far outweigh the associated costs through increasing chargebacks and recoveries by applying the diligent zero-tolerance checking processes.

This cost-effectiveness is a testament to the tangible benefits that our GFR solutions bring to both suppliers and retailers alike.


In essence, our GFR approach isn’t just about compliance; it’s about unlocking the full potential of your supply chain, fostering collaboration between suppliers and retailers, and ultimately driving growth and success in the competitive FMCG, DIY, and wholesale markets across the UK and Europe.
