Technology and Management Agent - Food Supply and Delivery Platform

Scope

This agreement will initially be a twelve-month pilot programme that will run in the South West of England, and will then roll out nationally following the successful completion of the pilot.

RM6227 will provide access to an online platform that links public sector organisations with a wide range of local food producers and suppliers. Customers will have the flexibility to meet their food requirements using multiple suppliers. The products offered by the platform include:

  • fresh food
  • pantry food 
  • bakery
  • ready meals
  • frozen foods
  • drinks
  • catering consumables

This agreement is linked with the agreements RM6131 and RM6228 which will contract with the food producers and the logistics supplier respectively. The service offered by this agreement will be the only point of contact for buyers and will coordinate the whole of the order from food selection to delivery.

Supplier engagement

We gave a food supply and delivery webinar for technology suppliers in June that outlines how CCS will deliver this agreement. You can watch a recording of the session on Youtube.
