Becoming Bidfood
This year we changed our name to Bidfood from Bidfood, as part of a wider programme of evolution which reflects our long-term commitment to driving leadership and innovation within the UK foodservice sector. We worked with customers to understand what matters to you and as a result have identified five key ingredients that we strive to deliver. When we carried out our sustainability review in the summer, we aligned our focal sustainability and CSR initiatives with each of these ingredients, to make sure that sustainability is truly integrated into the business.

Our key ingredients:
