Important information for suppliers.
It has come to our attention that an individual or individuals in no way associated with Heron Foods Ltd have been attempting to place fraudulent orders with suppliers under the guise of a Heron Foods representative.
In the first instance the order enquiries were made using a name not familiar to the business including, but not limited to, Douglas Alex and stating to be a representative of Heron Foods. The enquiries also use false email addresses such as email@example.com. Subsequently names and variations of the names of Heron Foods’ employees have also been used in an attempt to add legitimacy to the enquiry. In the enquiries they state they are from ”Heron Foods Limited a leading global professional services Groceries based in The United Kingdom“, although there have been variations to this statement.
Heron Foods Ltd does not process any order without an official purchase order, if you are unsure or suspect any fraudulent activity you can verify the details by contacting us on 0845 603 7300 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Heron Foods we aim to make the process of becoming a supplier as painless as possible. To achieve that we have put together a three stage process to follow with guidance and resources to support prospective suppliers.
