Ooberstock is to offer customers free delivery on all orders after it secured more than half a million pounds in a second round of fundraising.

The on-line wholesale drinks distribution business, which launched last year and allows brand owners to choose the price their goods are sold for, has received additional finance of £600,000.

MD Arran Heal admitted 2012 had been a challenging year to launch a business, but said the extra funding demonstrated how much confidence there was in the company.

“This will enable us to continue to grow, offering the most efficient ordering system, reliable and flexible delivery, extensive choice and competitive pricing,” he added.
