What is NX FOOD?
NX-Food stands for “Next Generation Food” and we are the Innovation Hub for the future of food. Our recipe? Expertise, network and implementation.
We are always on the lookout for innovative products that we can pilot and list together with our partner, METRO, in order to close the gap between start-ups and trade.
The purchasing and distribution platform NX-Food x CENFOOD offers start-ups and suppliers direct access to buyers from METRO Austria, who can order and list the products via the platform.
This is where you come in!

Centralised access to METRO and other buyers. Your registered product will also be activated for all other participating partners on the platform.
In addition, we guarantee you increased visibility with METRO buyers through our “validated by NX-Food” stamp, and the simple logistics processes through CENFOOD also facilitate internal listing decisions. Long and tedious negotiations and listing processes are now a thing of the past.
First and foremost, you need a supplier GLN. Furthermore, only products with a valid EAN/GTIN can be activated. (You can find more information on https://www.gs1-germany.de/). For almost all retail chains and online supermarkets, a valid marketability certificate is obligatory. Important certificates, e.g. for BIO certification and the bottler’s certificate, must also be filed in the certificate manager.
CENFOOD will gladly assist you in creating the necessary documents.
Please contact the CENFOOD Service Team if you are missing any requested information. The Service Team will also assist you in obtaining the necessary information.
If your details are complete, the CENFOOD Service Team will release your articles within a few days.
CENFOOD works with a clear and open calculation. This means that as a supplier you determine the prices for the buyer. For the provision and use of CENFOOD’s Online Distribution Systems, the Product Information Management System (PIM), the listing in CENFOOD’s product catalogue and online marketplace as well as the takeover of storage, logistics and delivery, CENFOOD charges fixed storage fees as well as a service fee per processed sale via the platform, depending on the service and booked distribution level.
We have started with METRO Austria and are planning to launch it for METRO Germany buyers in the near future.
No. With NX-Food x CENFOOD, we give METRO buyers the opportunity to obtain centralised information about your new, innovative and sustainable products, request samples and ultimately order your products for the market. This saves both you and the buyers a time-consuming listing process.
