Bidfood Scotland’s new sustainability initiative

Bidfood Scotland has launched details of its new sustainable initiative, “Source, Serve, Sustain.” To launch the initiative, Katie Sillars, Bidfood Scotland’s Supplier Development Manager, is cycling to sustainably deliver and launch the new Bidfood Scotland brochure to customers along the 120 mile route between Bidfood Scotland’s Edinburgh and Oban depots.

The brochure features over 100 Scottish suppliers and 600 products and includes meat, game, fish & seafood, dairy, bakery and drinks sourced from the length and breadth of Scotland. It highlights products that have particularly strong sustainability credentials, as well as fully compostable packaging and ecofriendly initiatives.

The foodservice provider is expanding its partnerships to include working in partnership with Green Tourism to offer customers credible, trustworthy and independent guidance on increasing its sustainability credentials. Green Tourism will also run a series of workshops for Bidfood Scotland’s clients, designed to provide catering managers, cooks and chefs with pragmatic advice on how to switch to a more sustainable way of serving up great food that tastes great and doesn’t have a negative impact on the planet.

The Bidfood Scotland brochure is available online and from local Bidfood Scotland Business Managers. Bidfood Scotland is currently a partner with Visit Scotland’s ‘Taste our Best’ accreditation to promote Scottish produce on the menu.
