We understand planning a return to the post-covid world is one that presents all kinds of challenges – particularly for those of you returning to a university. With new social distancing measures and infection control standards, food service is not what it once was, with salad bars and self-serve options replaced with screens and grab and go options to combat the spread of COVID-19.
One of your biggest challenges will be, how to keep serving fresh, delicious food, whilst adhering to these new measures and battling any potential supply shortages across the produce and agricultural sector.
Here at Foodbuy, we pride ourselves on our ability to work collaboratively with suppliers, keeping constant communication between us and our clients with regular updates on shortages and lack of fruitful crops. This ensures we only source food and drink that is of the very highest quality.
Our e-procurement system means you can place orders, check their status, amend orders, process invoices and so much more – all at the tap of a button! Only trusted food suppliers and products can enter the supply chain and you have full visibility and transparency meaning you only pay for what’s received - click here to find out more.
Social value is also a huge part of what makes us different, working in collaboration with SMEs and social enterprises to bring your students a taste of home whilst helping to enrich the local community across all of our clients and beyond. In the past year, Foodbuy has spent over £2.1 million with over 20 social enterprises, tackling key social issues. And this is just the beginning, we’re committed to growing this area of our business to £5 million, with at least one social enterprise per buying category.
We have been assisting thousands of schools and universities across the UK in the transition back to the post-covid world so, we want you to know that whatever the challenge, we are here to help.
