NHS Supply Chain: Food
Our specialist food procurement organisation brings together the widest range of food service clients in the world. We work closely with the NHS to deliver expert procurement services, saving both time and money and enabling you to focus on what really matters.
- We save money – Our buying power, people, breadth of products, network, technology and relationships will deliver commercial results.
- We offer quality – Providing the right quality products and services for each and every NHS Trust is our business. We understand the NHS so well that we can be sure we offer the right quality products to satisfy the needs of patients, customers and budgets.
- Our global network – We connect the NHS to suppliers from over 50 countries, allowing us to provide national, regional and local products and services, so whether it is access to the local grower or the largest supplier of soft drinks in the UK, we can deliver.
- We make it easy – We make it easy for NHS Trusts to achieve their goals. Our technology and our people guarantee it. We make ordering easy and save you time so you can concentrate on what’s really important to your Trust.
- We’re honest and transparent – When there are changes in the market, we can help minimise the impact of price increases and provide support with cost-saving initiatives.
- We deliver innovation – We have the expertise and focus to work with our suppliers and the NHS to innovate.
