For more than 40 years, Far Ocean has built a solid reputation for freshness. As a one-stop provider of integrated food solutions, they offer a wide variety of products – from premium Wagyu beef to gourmet seafood – that are recognised for their superior quality by the most discerning producers, distributors, and consumers worldwide. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created disruption on both domestic and global supply chains globally and also created a dent in terms of overall demand. With this, one of the key challenges for Far Ocean Group was ensuring that they continue to drive healthy cash flow, managing both the payables and receivables aspects of operations to ensure they emerge stronger after the crisis. To do so, Far Ocean Group has worked with Visa Business Payment Solution Provider CardUp to digitalise its payables, in turn saving manpower time and driving cost savings, particularly given Far Ocean’s multiple lines of business and numerous monthly invoices to process.
