Peas Please

#DontForgetTheVeg

Bidfood are proud to have made a pledge in support of the Peas Please initiative

Peas Please led by The Food Foundation encourages everyone to eat an extra portion of veg a day and aims to bring together farmers, retailers, fast food and restaurant chains, caterers, processors and government departments with a common goal of making it easier for everyone to eat veg.

Peas Please is a ground-breaking initiative which is focussed on bringing together many different organisations in the food system with a united aim of increasing the amount of vegetables we consume in the UK. Over 80% of us are not eating the recommended amount of veg and this is one of the main causes of the rise in diet related disease and obesity we have seen over the past 30 years. We are delighted that Bidfood has joined Peas Please and made a pledge to help increase the veg consumption of their staff and customers. As a year one pledger Bidfood are leading the way and we hope many more companies and organisations will join to make Peas Please have real impact and help improve the nation’s health.
