The right range for you

Your product needs are diverse so our range contains a balance of everyday scratch cook ingredients through to specialist brands such as Simply A La Carte, exclusive to Bidfood. We also offer meat expertise with butcher-quality, farm-traceable products through Farmstead. Our Unity alcohol brand contains your favourite products, plus support to create wine lists, food-pairing ideas and range development support. We also offer a complete range of Catering Supplies including personal protective equipment, kitchen tools, specialist tableware and cleaning chemicals.

Efficient deliveries through a one stop shop

We pride ourselves on our consolidated delivery service. This means that we compile all categories – including fresh, ambient, frozen, wholesale meat and alcohol – onto one lorry. So you only have to deal with one invoice, and one supplier drop off. Because our prices are competitive, you can save time by placing fewer orders with multiple suppliers or retailers.
