Bidfood strengthens its estate with two new depot openings

One of the UK’s leading foodservice providers, Bidfood, is set to open the doors to two brand new depots in 2023 as part of a wider plan to strengthen its current 24-strong depot network, offering customers a truly local service.

The first of the new sites will be based in Glasgow, covering the West of Scotland, and is set to open in early spring of 2023. The 90,000 sq. ft site will open as part of Bidfood Scotland’s initiative to expand the business’s local depot network, supporting continued growth, whilst helping meet the increasing demand from both existing and new customers.

Aiming to commence trading in autumn 2023, Bidfood will also be opening a site in Bedfordshire in order to strengthen its service across the South East of England, and will become one of the company’s largest sites to date, boasting 160,000 sq. ft.

Both Glasgow and Bedfordshire have been designed with the latest state-of-the-art systems, technology and fittings to support Bidfood in reducing its carbon footprint as well as continuing to work towards its target of greener depots.

Mark Wood, Chief Operating Officer at Bidfood said, “This is a really exciting time for the business, as we continue to grow our infrastructure to strengthen our support for customers.

“Both sites will enable us to operate from a high quality and modern facility which will alleviate pressure on existing depots in Scotland and the South East, as well as serve the communities in which they operate by providing jobs to local people.”

A third additional depot in the Midlands has also been commissioned, however, this will not be active until 2024.
