Another First For Select Drinks

December 10th, 2014 by steveadmin


After several months of gruelling preparation and vetting, Select Drinks are immensely proud to announce their status as the first office coffee and vending supplier in the UK to be awarded the trusted Buy With Confidence Trading Standards Approved mark.

Buy With Confidence is a national register of Trading Standards Approved businesses, all of which have been thoroughly vetted and approved and continuously monitored by a professionally qualified Trading Standards Officer, to help ensure a quality service as well as maintain the integrity of the scheme.

The mark means that Select Drinks, along with the other approved members, have made a commitment to trading in a fair, honest and legal manner, as well as submitting to detailed checks for compliance with Trading Standards legislation. The main focus of the scheme is customer care, and every member business including Select Drinks has to demonstrate that they offer a customer-friendly service.

Peter Adams, Managing Director of Select Drinks, explains further “Having been in the industry for over 20 years I’ve seen a marked increase in the number of external consultants and procurement advisors becoming involved when specifying vending and office coffee services, for organisations both large and small. While we always welcome the opportunity to work openly with these third parties, it generally adds a layer of cost and management to the client relationship. However, it also provides re-assurance often needed due to a lack of faith or trust some buyers have in an industry I’ve been proud to be part of for over 20 years.”

Peter continues “While we can all shout from the rooftops about the level and quality of service we provide, we have to realise that sometimes an Office or Facilities Manager needs more – a guarantee or assurance that the supplier they pick will not only deliver on their promises at the start of the relationship, but continue to conduct business in a fair and honest manner. This is why we’ve chosen to participate and become approved by Trading Standards under the Buy With Confidence scheme – to show clients, both existing and new, that there is a reputable office coffee and vending supplier for London and the South East, that has been independently verified to act with integrity and honesty, as we have always done since our beginnings in 1979.”
