Royal warrant of appointment

A purveyor is a company that enjoys special privileges for supply of goods and the provision of services to a / m yard. In monarchies, the system exists to this day, as in the UK, Thailand, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark. In some countries, such as in the Netherlands, it is at the awarding of the title " purveyor " a distinction that can be awarded irrespective of the delivery of the Court's long-established companies across the country that certain other conditions, as a certain age, criminal record, the proposal of the local mayor, meet.

The award of the prize purveyor had advantages not only for the supplier. The monarchy guaranteed (or insured) in return by this labeling system to support the ruling bourgeois commercial and industrial enterprises.
