As one of the UK’s leading foodservice distributors supplying care homes across the UK, we’re proud to be a premier partner to the NACC.
Through our extensive experience of supplying the care home sector, we fully appreciate the importance of mealtimes within your care home.
We understand that your priority is to provide top quality care for your residents and that includes serving up great food. However we also know that it can be challenging catering for residents with different needs.
We are proud to offer a choice of over 13,000 own brand and branded lines to support your menus within your care home. Working with leading suppliers we can provide you with the best products for cooking up great dishes. Our own brand, Everyday Favourites, brings you the food you use day to day, ranging from store cupboard essentials to convenient ready-made products. There are more than 600 quality
products in the range – giving you real choice for every meal occasion. Our Premium Selection range offers your residents the finest quality food using the best ingredients.
We also stock all the brands that your residents know and love so that when settling into your home familiar brands, like Rich Tea biscuits, Marmite and Heinz, are there to
provide comfort. Farmstead is our fresh meat brand, which offers a wide range of butcher-quality, farmtraceable products from selected suppliers with whom we have built long-term partnerships. This ensures trust, consistently high standards, quality and great value. As part of the Farmstead offering we have developed a specific range of fresh meat for care homes, with smaller portions and pack sizes to provide flexibility with cooking times and portion control to allow you to minimise waste and reduce costs.
With great food comes the need for great catering supplies too – and we’ve got everything to meet your needs from kitchen tools, specialist cutlery and tableware to cleaning chemicals. Our own brand Essential Supplies includes a range of quality, good value non-food products for daily use in your kitchens including cleaning chemicals, tin foil, paper plates and napkins.
ViVAS is our dedicated wines, beers and spirits specialist brand. Through this, we can
provide popular drinks brands and exclusive quality wine and champagne, all delivered with your Bidfood order. We can support your care home by creating wine lists, offering food pairing ideas and assisting with range development to meet your residents’ needs. We can also support your staff with training and wine tasting events
for your residents, helping to really add value to your business.
Every care home is different and that’s why we flex our offer to meet your individual needs. This includes access to a four weekly menu cycle with over 150 fortified recipes with nutritional and allergen information. We also provide ideas and recipes for themed events that you can celebrate within your care home.
Our dedicated Advice Centre is available free of charge to all our customers to answer your product queries, give advice on food safety procedures, allergens and special diets, event planning and much more.
