Working With Us
GUSTATORY (adjective): curating excellence in taste
A brand-centric platform, GUSTATORY is a curation of our favourite independent coffee roasters, tea makers, winemakers, brands and more, far and wide from across the UK, Europe and beyond, in which we enable our partners to gain direct exposure as much as reach new domestic and international audiences. With a mission of innovatively promoting, supporting and retailing all our independents, discover more about GUSTATORY or How It Works. Towards GUSTATORY's holistic purpose of 'curating excellence in taste', 2019 was just the beginning.
All of our partners are focused on ensuring their production processes are ethical and sustainable. Being conscious of your impact on both the immediate and wider communities in which you operate is now crucial and is a big part of what we do here at GUSTATORY. Supported by an in-house sales, marketing and customer service team, GUSTATORY's vision is to deliver the preferred place for consumers to browse, compare and shop for speciality coffee, quality teas, wines and other drinks online. Whilst most of the nation's coffee roasters already supply their local cafe's, hotels and other outlets, GUSTATORY prides itself in going one step further. Speciality coffees, artisan drinks, wines and more, delivered.
Foremost, GUSTATORY is built ground-up around two core principles: supporting independent coffee roasters, tea makers and brands as well as emphasising the ethics and sustainability of better coffee, wine, tea and other drinks. In parallel to our two core principles, GUSTATORY consistently honours these four additional sub-principles in support of our mission:
Our Core Principles:
....All marketplace prices, delivery costs and free delivery thresholds are the same as if a consumer were shopping direct, advertised on each partners' storefront and product listing.
...There are no hidden agendas. Our aim is to educate and guide our consumers on their coffee (or other drinks) journey. All our products are complete with full information to ensure they know exactly what they're purchasing. No prices are ever inflated to include misleading hidden costs.
...Our processes for both the consumer and our partners are straightforward. Whilst customers can checkout with one payment on the marketplace, irrespective of how many brands they choose to purchase from, our partners can enjoy an equally 100% automated process.
...All the diversity, creativity and innovation from independent brands based across the world in one place, all for our customers. A central place for discovery and education. Ethical, clear and easy.
A unique platform within the beverage industries we serve, GUSTATORY attracts the best coffee roasters, tea makers, winemakers, brands and more that are each independent, unique and quality-driven. For all partners accepted at GUSTATORY, working with us includes access to our internal dashboard, with orders and products both powered by our 100% automated integration, as well as be supported by a storefront and various exposure placements across the website, social media and other channels. Each of our partners have control over your own pricing policy, shipping costs and thresholds, and GUSTATORY works on a commission-based model.
