Why choose Bidfood

Celebrating 75 years of NHS Service

75 years of tirelessly serving the nation doesn’t happen without the heart and soul of the NHS operations – their wonderful staff, so we wanted to speak with some of the heroes behind the scenes at Royal Leicester Infirmary – some of which have been working in NHS catering for over 40 years! 

Specialist diets

We’re here to help you care for your patients and we have a fantastic range of support to assist you in catering for the more specialist diets. Read our ‘Catering for dysphagia’ and ‘Catering for Dementia’ guides, watch our IDDSI video or take a look at our range of specially prepared puréed meals from Simply Food Solutions for a snap shot of our support.
