Customer Zest Supply


At Zumo Zest, we pride ourselves on being a reliable partner in the supply chain, providing high-quality zest to food and beverage manufacturers. This case study highlights how we stepped in to help a new customer avert a potential crisis when their usual supplier failed to deliver.

The Challenge: Recently, a leading food and beverage manufacturer got in touch with an urgent request. Their regular supplier of orange and lemon zest had let them down, leaving them unable to fulfill their production requirements. Facing a critical shortage, they needed a swift and dependable solution to avoid disrupting their supply chain and letting down their own customers.

Our Solution: Upon receiving their request, our team assessed our inventory and confirmed that we had the required orange and lemon zest in stock. We understood the urgency of the situation and quickly set about solving it and, our ability to provide a similar, high-quality product gave them confidence in our capability to meet their needs.

Swift Action: Time was of the essence. We expedited the order processing and arranged for the immediate delivery of the zest. Our logistics team worked diligently to ensure the product was dispatched without delay. Within a very short turnaround time, the zest was delivered to the manufacturer, enabling them to continue their production without interruption.

The Outcome: Thanks to our prompt response and efficient delivery, the customer was able to avert the looming product shortage crisis. Their production lines remained operational, and they were able to fulfill their commitments to their own customers. The relief and satisfaction expressed by our new customer were palpable!

Customer Feedback: The manufacturer was extremely pleased with our quick and effective response. They appreciated our ability to provide a high-quality product on such short notice and recognised the effort we put into ensuring their supply chain remained intact. This positive experience not only resolved their immediate problem, but also laid the groundwork for a strong, ongoing business relationship.

Conclusion: At Zumo Zest, we understand the critical importance of reliability and speed in the food and beverage industry. This case study exemplifies our commitment to supporting our customers, especially in times of urgent need.
