What matters to you
Theme days inspiration
Theme days are a great way to make mealtimes an occasion to look forward to, and a great way to add variety to your everyday menu. Help your residents celebrate key events in the calendar from the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to National Burger Day by offering themed dishes that are sure to delight the taste buds. We have all you need in this shoppable guide from theme and recipe innovation through to top tips and themed posters.
Keeping residents safe and well
We will help keep residents and staff safe through contactless deliveries to reduce the number of touchpoints, with our drivers briefed on the safety protocols they need to follow. Our range of personal protective equipment and hygiene products will support your staff to create a safer environment.
Support for your staff with our e-learning platform
We’re pleased to launch our e-learning platform dedicated to supporting the care sector, Caterers Campus. With modules on dysphagia and IDDSI, dementia, hydration and much more, your teams can learn virtually and in their own time.
Creating your menu and catering for dietary needs
Access a wealth of information, sources and products to help you create inspired menus. From menu cycles and recipes to videos, our experienced chef team create tools to help your teams. Our toolkit includes catering for dementia and dysphagia, Catering with Care brochure (available to Bidfood customers) and popular Care Caterers Handbook. We also support customers to minimise waste and manage costs.
NACC Premier Partner
We are proud to be a Premier Partner to support the National Association of Care Catering in their quest to unite, support and represent everyone working in and associated with catering in the UK care sector.
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.
