This ESPO framework offers customers a quick, simple and competitive route to purchase a range of frozen and chilled pre-prepared meals and meal components.

All of the suppliers on this framework have been selected for their experience and ability to provide customers with a comprehensive range of products that combine quality and value, and satisfy all dietary requirements and Government Buying Standards.

The framework has primarily been designed to meet the requirements of local authorities providing services such as Meals on Wheels and NHS Trusts providing meals to patients and visitors.

The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Local Authority Establishments
  • NHS & HSC Bodies
  • Registered Charities
  • Schools & Academies
  • Police & Emergency Services
  • Central Government Departments & their agencies

What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • Complete individual main meals from less than £1.00.
  • Desserts from less than 40p each.
  • This framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • Suppliers listed on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, experience and technical & professional ability.
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions to underpin all orders so no need to worry.
