Foodbuy Transition: What to Expect
HealthTrust announced in the February 15, 2019 HealthTrust Response that its Sole Source Food & Procurement Distribution Management category contract was awarded to Foodbuy with an effective date of August 1, 2019.
This webpage has been created to assist you in managing the process of transitioning to the new Foodbuy program. Below, you will find the steps that will help HealthTrust and Foodbuy to understand the scope of your operations and help your operations team learn about all the benefits of this new agreement, including training on systems and reporting.
Please note that this webpage will be updated on a regular basis with activities that you will be required to complete plus documents and further information. We ask that you pay close attention to the timing associated with each activity.
HealthTrust and Foodbuy are excited about this new agreement and the value it will bring to HealthTrust members. Thank you for your timely attention to this important process and contact HealthTrust@Foodbuy.com with any questions.
As a reminder, effective August 1, HealthTrust members will no longer have access to Entegra pricing, which includes Ecolab products for a given facility foodservice areas only: All Purpose Glass and Specialty Cleaners, Floor Cleaners & Care, Grease/Drain Products, Surface Sanitizers & Other Disinfectants, Warewashing, Delimers and Bathroom Cleaners & Air Fresheners. Foodbuy will implement a phased conversion strategy to ensure all member locations transition smoothly to the new Diversey program.
Diversey does NOT have a direct ship model similar to Ecolab. They only distribute chemicals and only ship through authorized broadline distributors. Ancillary products will continue to be purchased through your facility’s normal route to market.
Please note that it is business as usual until August 1, 2019. If you have questions or concerns in the meantime, please review the materials posted below. If you have questions that are not answered in these resources, please reach out to HealthTrust@Foodbuy.com.

- Your Foodbuy Customer Number will be needed to complete this survey – find it here. If you do not see your facility listed then your facility has not completed the initial transition survey or your location is NOT in-scope for this transition. If you believe this to be a mistake, please email HealthTrust@Foodbuy.com.
