The original food and beverage stocktakers

Established in 1896 as the first hospitality stocktakers in the UK, we spearheaded the now well-recognised practice of food and beverage stocktaking.

Licensed trade stock takes

Our nationwide team deliver stock takes to pubs, restaurants, hotels, bars, cafés, caterers, and other hospitality operators and licensed trade premises.

Need an F&B stock take?

Food and beverage stocktaking is one of the most complex types of stocktaking there is. An effective food and beverage stock take is completed by trained professionals who know the industry’s products inside out. They’re also made a lot simpler by specialist stocktakers who know exactly what to look out for and how to systematically and accurately count, record and analyse the collected stock data. With over 125 years experience in doing just that, our food and beverage stocktakers have supported thousands of hospitality operators in the UK with key operational data, including:

Stock results

Sales yield

Itemised variances

Gross profit

Independent professionals

In-house stock takes often fail to provide objective and accurate results and analysis of your food and beverage data. Venners are never biased, benchmark your performance against others in the industry and tackle tough problems.

Same day online reports

Reports are always published on site and discussed with your food and beverage team. They detail stock results, analysis and action points. Customers with a compatible operational setup can view reports via our online portal.

Exclusive add-ons

On top of your standard stock take, we can deliver mentoring and training. Plus we can conduct brand authentication and spirit tests to verify that sites are stocking genuine products and the brands of spirits you advertise.
