Today we are launching our new checklist for catering services tenders. Created in partnership with contract caterers Fooditude and with support from our Catering SIG, this simple checklist outlines the information and data to collate and issue to bidders when tendering for catering services.

The purpose of the checklist is to help you to: avoid multiple and timely clarifications from bidders requesting the same information; allow enough time to gather the data as it will lead to a fully considered, correctly costed proposal from all bidders; enable fair and easy evaluation of bidders’ responses by providing accurate data to all bidders upfront; and select a bidder that meets your business needs and expectations.

Fooditude’s Head of Strategic Growth, Cristina Covello, said of the launch:

‘After the pandemic has subsided, workplaces will be decidedly different than they were before. Organisations will be rethinking their space and looking for flexible solutions while employees will want to feel safe to return to the office. Whether you already have a workplace canteen or are looking at setting up a safe solution to minimise trips to crowded high streets during the lunch hour, now is a great time to be looking ahead at what kind of catering offer you need to meet future demand. We hope this updated checklist will be a useful springboard for you to chart your return to work strategy.’
