Hello KF Buyers, 

We are A & G Food Distributors LLC and, we are pleased to be back after two successful campaigns (Co-Op 1, Co-Op 2) with the Kickfurther community. We are coming back with orders of our luxury sparkling and natural water to fulfill demand from Shoprite. This is almost the exact same structure as our last two successful Co-Ops. It's covering demand for a single large client, the items are coming from the same manufacturer, and the expectation is to pay buyers back with payment from our AR factor shortly after delivering the materials. We had a mild delay in our first Co-Op, but have gotten the hang of it and everything worked out on time in our last Co-Op. 

Currently, the raw materials are with the supplier in Italy and they are simply waiting on payment to bottle, package, label the water appropriately. This process should take 7 days from when the money is received. From there it will be put on the boat and sail to the port (approx. 17 days). We expect this to occur around August 20th. From there it will be 4 days to clear customs and be picked up to go to the distribution locations. At that point, it will be approximately 10 days for payment to be issued and 3 days for that payment to settle so that we can issue it to Kickfurther. We have built at 10-14 days of buffer  (depending on the speed of funding) into the Co-Op to cover any minor delays that could arise. If you want to know how this will go, just look at our last Co-Op. Also because we issue our payments by wire they do not experience the hold period that ACH payments do.

Our need continues to be overwhelmingly for short-term work in progress funding to fulfil orders from major grocery outlets. This order will be very similar to our first KF deal. It will be used to fulfil orders from ShopRite and Kings. The inventory is ready to be produced and shipped to an end client; all that is required is that the supplier is paid the balance owed so that the process can begin. We cannot assign these purchase order to Kickfurther because we working with an invoice factor who currently requires all invoices be processed by them.

This means that we expect to receive payment directly from the factor within days of when our clients are invoiced. This is the same structure we used on our previous Co-Op. 

We are an established business but reasonable and reliable working capital to satisfy purchase orders is a missing ingredient handicapping our growth.
