Dublin-based IngredientsNet.com, an e-commerce platform for the food industry, announced on Tuesday that it will offer two new private procurement solutions - ProcureSelect™ and ProcureWare™. ProcureSelect™ is a private e-procurement platform where buyers can invite selected suppliers to trade in a private and secure trading environment. ProcureWare™ is a secure customised e-procurement solution. The company claims that this move is a reflection of the industry's increasing desire for private e-hubs. Tom Galvin, CEO of IngredientsNet.com. commented, "Many purchasingprofessionals have spent a lot of time implementing legacy systems and want an off the shelf solution for e-procurement that will not utilize their alreadystretched IT resources." Established in March 2000, IngredientsNet.com currently has 500 members.
