Online Ordering for Produce, Products & Menu Supplies

Researching different online/web based systems for ordering produce and other menu items from suppliers.  A lot of the systems I have found seem to be proprietary to a particular distributor, supplier or consortium.  While any recommendations, even for a proprietary system woudl be appreciated, I'm particularly interested in systems where I can compare produce and products from different distributors, suppliers and manufacturers.  Any advice?  Many thanks.See More

Ha!!  I was one of the first 500 members!!  I don't use it that much now.  When they first started up, they got really uptight if you talked about your business on here cuz they wanted ppl to buy banner ads.  I loaded up my profile with anchor links back to my website.  I have been talking to folks about Gobza.  Kelly and I will talk to Karen (exec director - GRA) next week.
