Tuko Logistics Cooperative procures industrial food products, fresh products and non-food products from Finland and abroad to respond to its customers’ needs. We focus on maintaining a competitive and efficient range of products that are reliably delivered and satisfy our customers’ needs. Our basic, seasonal and customer-specific assortments cater for retail chains as well as the hotel, restaurant and catering (HoReCa) sector.
Each year, we procure a range of over 25,000 items from approximately 900 Finnish and 1,000 international suppliers. Tuko co-operates with small and large suppliers alike, including strategic partnership with the most important suppliers.
In its purchasing activities, Tuko acts responsibly and complies with the principles of good commercial practice. As a company, Tuko is registered in the EU-level food chain self-regulation mechanism and has undertaken to comply with the approved principles of good commercial practice. Compared with legislation, voluntary observation of these principles provides better means for sustainable development of the entire food chain.
Tuko’s procurement professionals specialise in customer co-operation, product range management, purchasing, daily ordering and delivery control, product register, pricing, private label procurement and development, development of co-operation with suppliers, etc.
We collaborate with our owner chains to ensure that our product range and services meet our customers’ needs as accurately as possible. We provide our owners with procurement services also for their own private labels.
Furthermore, we are a co-owner in United Nordic (UN) and European Marketing Distribution (EMD), the latter being Europe’s largest purchasing organisation for groceries. We engage in close procurement co-operation with them.
Our private labels include Eldorado, known for its high quality and a wide assortment of products; the affordable First Price; and the coffee brands Kulta Mokka, Tumma Mocca and Pehmeä Mocca. Furthermore, we import EMD’s labels, such as the Power King energy drink, Dorati cookies and Banderos tex mex products.
