For all your hotel needs from breakfast to dinner, weddings and conferences, we have a vast range to suit.

Having worked closely with the hospitality industry over the years, we understand that catering in a hotel has its challenges; ranging from day part offers to providing inspiration to your chefs. So in order to minimalise your catering complexities, we at Bidfood will provide you with the necessary information to make your decision making process much simpler.

We want to work in partnership with you to develop your solutions within all parts of your business to meet the customer’s needs whether that’s in providing insights and trends, working with you to build the right offering or even simply helping with industry challenges such as managing allergens.

Channel insights

As we all know, consumers are the driving force behind emerging trends.  This could be flavour trends with more consumers wanting to indulge in foods they’ve experienced overseas.  Or even the demand for better packaging solutions for those time poor consumers who still want a decent meal on the move.

Whatever the trend may be, we’re here to help, especially within a hotel that caters to a wide number of day parts and services such as weddings, conferences and room service.

Trends to consider



Consumers, for the most part, know what they like so give them the option to personalise their dish by giving them choices and adaptations. This flexibility gives the consumer the power and you a happy customer.
