Welcome to the BCF Vendor information page, outlining process and procedures to follow when doing business with the BCF Merchandise Team.
Are you a new Supplier / looking to become a supplier to BCF?
If you have a product submission to make to the BCF team, first port of call is to make contact with the relevant Category Manager or Merchandise Manager – see the attached Information Kit. You will also have to complete a vendor Trading Terms document (available below), which outlines our standard trading terms. Please read through the Information Kit for more information on product requirements.
Category Range Review Schedule
As at 10th July 2008, BCF has updated its range review schedule to ensure that our customers are consistently getting access to new and improved offers across the Boating, Camping and Fishing categories in our stores. The calendar for reviews is available on the website, as are the submission forms. Please read through the “How to Submit” worksheet on the Category Review Submission Form for more information on making a submission.
Packaging & Logistics Requirements
To service the various means of product distribution available to us, there are minimum requirements on product packaging and barcodes that must be met for a product to be considered for the BCF product range. Please read the attached Packaging, Barcode and Logistics Specifications for more detail.
In order to help our suppliers achieve the BCF packaging requirements, the Warning JPEGs have been provided here free of charge. The use of these warning labels is discussed in detail in the Packaging, Barcode and Logistics Specifications document on the previous page. Please note that these images should be displayed on a minimum of two adjacent sides of all applicable cartons and no smaller than a standard business card in size.
