Bakery suppliers sought for NHS

first_imgBakers are being invited to apply for the opportunity to supply bread and morning goods to NHS hospitals in England. The advert for the framework will be published in spring, with the framework agreement set to start in September 2012.Kevin Goldfinch, buyer at NHS Supply Chain, which manages the framework agreement, is keen to hear from any interested bread manufacturers who could deliver competitively priced products to hospital sites. Typically, bakers supplying the NHS supply between one and six hospitals with bread and morning goods and cover a minimum geographic distribution area of 50 miles. Kevin said, “We are interested in hearing from any bread manufacturers who are committed to supplying the NHS, they will have to be either BRC (British Retail Consortium) accredited or be willing to undertake a food audit. This would provide hospital catering managers with sufficient choice to ensure they obtain quality via an excellent service at a low cost. The process is open to small, medium and large bakeries.” Bakers who apply will be evaluated via the tender process and, if successful, they will be put on to a framework agreement, whereby the bakery and hospital catering department can discuss requirements and complete the process.
