‘Food for thought’

A group of 7 London Boroughs, supported by YPO, the UK’s largest public sector buying organisation, have awarded a £50m contract to Thomas Ridley Food Service to provide food for school meals.

YPO was able to coordinate the tender process through its unique public sector framework known as ‘The UK Food Deal’, which was launched nationwide in 2016 and was set up specifically to meet the needs of public sector organisations which look for a legally compliant, easy-to-use and cost-saving way of procuring food.

The framework means that YPO can help organisations be more efficient by saving time & money on lengthy & complex tenders, leaving them to focus on their priorities such as education provision.  It also allows organisations to access a range of local & national suppliers including SMEs.
