ICC Buying Group

The Independent Cash & Carry Buying Group (ICC Buying Group) is a privately-owned collective buying organisation, founded in May 2001. Previously, two operating businesses, namely The ICC Group and ICC Buying Group, have recently merged and have been rebranded as the ICC Buying Group, headed up by CEO, Gert Scheepers.

While the original members of the ICC Group operate as shareholders in the business, the balance of membership is structured according to a members’ agreement model. Members are independently-owned, owner-managed businesses. The ICC Group provides a formal link to the informal retailer through a franchise operation, Lifestyle Franchise, established in 2012 with the intention of assisting informal traders to compete on an equal footing in the formal retail context.

The ICC Buying Group provides its base of approximately 330 member outlets with a number of services including centralised price and trading term negotiation, collective purchasing, category and merchandising support, and the provision of a comprehensive national promotional programme.
