IPS is a membership organization with NO COST to join. The deeper you participate in sampling and purchasing from our approved brand name products, the more value you will get from our rebate program. Rebates collected on your behalf by IPS are in addition to the bid pricing, consumer rebates, coupon rebates, and other options used to reduce food-buying costs.
Institutional Purchasing Service (IPS) leverages the purchasing power of over 8000 public schools and over $1 billion in volume to generate the savings and off-budget income necessary to allow schools to exceed the standards of healthy foods and nutritional programming for children nationwide.
We have a dedicated team of employees who negotiate volume rebates for our members and communicate these opportunities to our loyal members. Our compliance team combs through data in order to optimize the purchasing of each and every member, enabling our dietary directors to obtain every rebate possible.
