Successful Conversion of the Haddon House Distribution Center in Howell, NJ

This weekend, the second Haddon House Distribution Center, located in Howell, NJ, successfully converted to the UNFI distribution network. This is a major milestone in the integration and will enable us to serve our customers as one company.

Over the next few weeks, you may experience some challenges as we acclimate to the new ways of working together. If you have questions, please contact your Buyer – please refer to the Buyer Assignment list as needed.

Gourmet Guru Integration

Thank you for your continued support of the integration between UNFI and Gourmet Guru. We’re excited about the benefits it will bring Gourmet Guru suppliers, including a new geographic reach, access to UNFI resources, and opportunities to expand into new customer bases.

We are in the process of relocating items from the Gourmet Guru Bronx facility to the UNFI Distribution Centers. Items are being relocated based on geographic proximity, customer-specific long hauls, and existing business.

All Current or Previous Gourmet Guru Suppliers

  • You should have recently received a detailed breakdown of how the integration impacts your brand assortment, including warehouse information, locations, and invoicing addresses. If you did not receive this information or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Supplier Relationship Manager

Suppliers New to UNFI

  • If you were not shipping to UNFI prior to the Gourmet Guru Integration, you should receive your first Purchase Order from UNFI the week of 3/20. 
  • Please review the Purchase Order to confirm the details are correct and that UNFI is set up in your system as a customer for billing purposes. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your Supplier Relationship Manager

Our goal is to make this process as easy as possible for our suppliers. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your Supplier Relationship Manager.
