At Bidfood, we take the safety of the products we supply and our people incredibly seriously. In responding to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus around the world and in the UK, its impact on international supply chains as well as recent consumer stockpiling, Bidfood is proud to have an extensive range and supplier base to draw upon.
Whilst putting in place comprehensive plans for our customers, we’ve also looked at how best we can support the general public and their requirement for food. As we see many outlets sadly shutting their doors for the foreseeable, the pressure on the retailers is only seeming to grow and so we have launched a service that will be a mixture of click and collect and delivery to try and support the demand as best we can.
We will be launching our services to consumers from this week, where they will be able to purchase a wide range of frozen, chilled and ambient goods from our core range.
As you can imagine, this has meant making big changes to our business model and some incredible work from our teams to get this up and running in a very short space of time. We will be reviewing how this new service is performing over the coming weeks, but we’re pleased to see already how well this news has been received since announcing our plans on Friday.
