For the financial year Members saved £4.5 (inc unrecoverable vat).

2021 saw an unprecedented number and size of price increase and 2022 is continuing the same trend. Factors including Covid, Brexit, product shortages, increasing transport costs, increasing labour costs and worldwide demand increases are causing these increases. Of course any percentage price increase is lower if the starting point is lower. ASW Members have benefitted from our low prices so that the increases experienced have been as low as possible.

In total, Advantage South West members have saved over £56m since the procurement consortium was formed.
