The launch of the DCL Food Distributors on-line ordering system adds further to increased service levels. DCL Food Distributors is built on good service, says the management. “It is very important to us, and we strive constantly to give better service than the rest. We have been in the restaurant business ourselves and we understand the needs of the restaurateur. We ensure that deliveries are made promptly in the day, since I know that restaurateurs and managers don’t want to be unpacking goods when they should be attending to the customers’ needs.”
