Bestway’s new foodservice business has secured a big contract, just four months after its national launch.

Bestway Batleys Foodservice has won the contract to supply Midlothian Council with all its ambient, chilled, soft drink and catering products from mid-February - a contract previously held by foodservice giant 3663. As part of the contract, it will deliver to home economics departments in schools, as well as care homes, parks and other council-managed establishments.

“The awarding of the Midlothian contract reinforces the credentials of BBF as a credible player in the local authority foodservice sector,” said Steve Irons, senior contracts manager for BBF.
