Clifton Buying Group was founded in Blackpool by CEO Edward Stephen Lawton in 2011. Edward knew that, in common with many industries, purchasing and supply solutions were moving in line with the challenging climate and economic change, this is now more relevant than ever before, especially with today’s European and Global financial backdrop and all the uncertainty it brings.

As the pace of change has quickened, so Clifton Buying Group has evolved to provide supply solutions to the increasing number of companies turning towards central purchasing.

It was Edwards vision to serve national accounts with a local supply chain, using local growers and artisan producers, with a strong emphasis on provenance, environmentally and sustainably responsible companies, which in turn would help reduce our clients carbon footprint and food miles travelled whilst keeping money and employment in the local economy.

This approach is stronger now than ever with CBG’s clients benefiting from negotiated pricing through consolidated national buying power, whilst safe in the knowledge CBG is constantly keeping abreast of market forces, current and emerging trends and local issues all controlled and reported back to our client through one point of contact, dedicated to their business, ensuring they get the best out of Clifton Buying Group.

Edward’s ethos is the relentless pursuit of excellence, service delivery and striving to drive that extra mile through the supply chain.
