Working with Bidfood

Hear Alison Shedlock from the University of Manchester discuss how we have supported her business to offer innovative and on trend products that help her meet students’ changing needs. We’re always looking to support our university customers with ideas to help prevent students eating off campus where possible.

A university’s food requirements are diverse. We offer a fully consolidated delivery solution with ambient, chilled and frozen products all arriving on the same lorry saving you precious labour, time and costs.

√ Self: student well-being

We’ve combined forces with Christine Bailey, an award winning nutritional therapist, chef, author and broadcaster to launch a campaign aimed at promoting student mental wellbeing, called the square root of self. As part of this we’ve launched a Self guide containing recipes, advice and insights for university caterers.
