This makes Indepet unique and the first to succeed with a direct distribution route into the Australian pet care market.
Within its first 18 months, Indepet already had 24 Shareholders, with strong interest coming from New Zealand. This in itself is an exciting prospect as it shows the global industry the relevance of the Indepet model in the current climate.
Indepet has the right structure and financial package for today’s ambitious and progressive pet care retailers.
It was designed to take cost out of the supply chain and give independents greater control of their destiny.
With its philosophy of establishing strategic partnerships with suppliers and wholesaler, Indepet has no need for costly warehouses.
At Indepet, we believe in jointly managing relationships with suppliers and wholesalers because we know this is the best way to keep you informed and competitive on the retail shop floor.
In the dynamic pet care market, the virtues of agility and tenacity are what is required most these days and that’s really what independents do best.
Your management team at Indepet recognise this and have created a group that is capable of tapping and harnessing this great strength and leveraging it for the benefit of all members of the group.
We understand that every Shareholder of the Indepet group counts. Every supplier counts. Every negotiation counts.
Every possible way of buying, selling and servicing your market more profitably must be explored, refined and implemented.
This demands strong leadership across the whole spectrum of issues now impacting on the independent sector of the pet care market.
Through Indepet, you now have the professional expertise, guidance and support you need to survive and prosper as independents well into the 21st century. And certainly, well beyond what you could ever achieve trading alone, under your own banner.
