Our Purchasing Partners


We work with over 60 category leading suppliers in the hospitality and catering industries. Most of them have been our trusted purchasing partners for many years. And our buying experts are always sourcing quality new products and food suppliers for customers both nationally and regionally.

Our industry partners include wholesalers, specialist fresh food suppliers, catering equipment providers, utilities and specialist service providers such as telecoms and waste management.This means we can offer our customers choice and quality in every category of product from suppliers we know and trust.

We have great relationships with our partners and that’s why they give our customers the best possible prices.

"We supply fresh produce to a wide range of Lynx Purchasing customers, including Peach Pubs, Benito’s Hat and Snug Bars. Fresh vegetables, salad and fruit, whether for fixed or seasonal menus, are an essential ingredient for the Lynx customers we work with, and both quality and price have to be right every time. Our partnership with Lynx has enabled us to build long term relationships with some of the foodservice sector’s most demanding operators."

"The approach Lynx Purchasing has taken to working with Oliver Kay is proving to be a very successful one. They recognise that there are many aspects to the daily supply of quality Fresh produce outside of just price. Things such as Specification, Seasonality, local supply and overall freshness and yield are core to the Oliver Kay business. By recognising and understanding this Lynx are in a great position to ensure both current and future clients are matched with the best supplier for their business in relation to Fresh Produce."

"I’ve worked alongside Lynx Purchasing since the company set up in business, supplying office products and stationery to many of their customers. Lynx’s wide customer base puts our company in direct contact with businesses that we wouldn’t be able to identify working alone. It’s a partnership that works very well for everyone, including the operators who benefit from the better deals we are able to offer on their office essentials."

Bill Cowling

Director, Complete Office Solutions

"We began working with Lynx through Peach Pubs. Lynx then asked us to look at supplying some of their independent hotel customers. This has worked very well for us and reflects our own business strategy. The relationship has developed because Lynx allow us to tailor our product offering and pricing to each customer to meet their individual needs, which is in contrast to most other purchasing companies who try to use a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Lynx’s approach is to find the best solution for all parties, and they work to build long term relationships."

Simon Yorke

Sales Director, Harvey & Brockless

"We see Lynx Purchasing as an extension and partner to our business, working in a refreshingly open and transparent manner, always with the sole aim of finding out what the customer needs and working together to “meat” that need, the key driver being to ensure a mutual benefit is enjoyed by all 3 parties. We are proud to be associated with the Lynx Purchasing team and look forward to another 10 years of association"
