Bidfood Scotland has launched a new range of local dairy and egg products into the UK foodservice industry.

The wholesaler’s new suppliers include First Milk, Inverloch Cheese Company, Yester Farm Dairies and Scotlay Eggs.

The partnership is part of Bidfood’s support of Scotland Food and Drinks’ new Ambition 2030, a Scottish Government run initiative that aims to double turnover in the Scotland food and drink sector to reach £30 billion by 2030.

Bidfood Scotland’s business development manager, Katie Sillars, says that the company is proud to partner with local suppliers and “offer opportunities to grow”.

“Our strategy is about finding the right balance between quality and value for money,” she said. “Our aim is to work in partnership with our suppliers and help them to drive growth of the dairy and egg categories regionally in Scotland, as well as across the whole of our UK business.”

Paul Stewart, marketing manager at First Milk, added: “We’re pleased to grow our business further by working with Bidfood.

“Every increase we have in volume helps to improve the price per litre for our farmers, and this then creates a more sustainable milk price.”

Bidfood Scotland was established in 2015, and is part of Bidfood in the UK.
