Managing Food and Catering

Category information

Our Food and Catering frameworks can provide everything you need to successfully run your catering service or kitchen, including one-off capital purchases, complete catering solutions as well as the supply of meals, food, drinks and snacks.

We are a hands-on, dedicated category with a pragmatic approach, providing you with the tools and knowledge you need to save money, and manage your food procurement. Excellent procurement practice and great relationships with our suppliers ensure the effective delivery of high quality services to our customers. We use a balanced scorecard approach to ensure the broader aspects of service offered by our suppliers (including compliance with Government Buying Standards for food and catering, supply chain management, traceability, inclusion of SMEs, and food quality) is weighed against cost to ensure customer satisfaction. We offer a comprehensive contract management service and work with customers to achieve business objectives.

Some of our frameworks have been established collaboratively through partnerships with other procurement organisations, giving the combined purchasing power to secure prices that are much more competitive than would be possible for customers to achieve if purchasing on their own.

As well as frameworks for a wide range of different food types, we also offer:
