Bidfood goes for gold with an impressive series of award wins

This year so far, Bidfood has achieved an impressive series of award wins, culminating in the Grocer Gold Awards, where the foodservice provider picked up the esteemed ‘Wholesaler of the Year’ accolade. The judges said that Bidfood has a great “care, share and dare culture” as well as a “strong and improving customer satisfaction”, and it was this commitment to its customers that clinched the win. The event saw over 400 top industry leaders come together to celebrate the highlights of what has been another amazing year for the UK’s vast, diverse and fast-changing grocery sector.

The Grocer Gold Award is the latest in a series of wins for Bidfood, with recognition across the business from IT to employee engagement. At the BFFF Product Awards earlier this month, Bidfood took home five awards in total, including winning Gold in the ‘Best New Dessert’ category for its Premium Selection Individual Truffle Torte, and the ‘Best New Starter’ product for its Somerset Brie & Blueberry Chutney Tart.

Other recent awards have included winning ‘Technology Team of the Year’ at The Real IT Awards, along with three awards at the UK Employee Experience Awards (including the coveted Overall Winner title). Bidfood also won the Corporate Social Responsibility Award for the ‘To Bee or Not to Bee’ Campaign at the FPA Awards, plus three categories at the Chefs Choice Awards.

Andrew Selley, CEO at Bidfood said, “The awards we have achieved this year are testament to the hard work and dedication of our fantastic team. To win ‘Wholesaler of the Year’ at the Grocer Gold Awards after such a successful year, is an honour and I am glad to see our team rewarded for their ongoing efforts. 2018 is set to be a really exciting year, and awards like these continue to motivate us.”
