Triple School Contract Win Worth £3.5 Million
Updated: 22 March, 2023
We are excited to announce that JJ Foodservice has been awarded THREE new contracts to supply schools in the North of England. Barnsley, Bolton, and Bradford Council schools will all be supplied by our team in deals totalling more than £3.5 million.
JJ Foodservice is already working with Kirklees and Leeds Councils bringing the total number of schools being supported in North England to more than 650.
“Our fuel-efficient fleet and digitalised ordering process will help to offer schools nutritious options while helping to reduce their carbon footprint,” said Chief Sales Officer, Baris Kacar.
Sustainable Foodservice
JJ supplies schools with thousands of fresh, chilled, ambient, and frozen goods – including packaging products, 75% of which are fully compostable.
An investment in telematics helps the wholesaler to optimise routes and fuel efficiency.
JJ plans to install solar panels across every UK branch by the end of the year and is working with an increasing number of local suppliers.
“We are on a journey to do business the right way,” said Baris. “We hope we can help schools to achieve their sustainability targets in the process.”
Recruitment Push
Following its triple win, JJ is targeting more public sector contracts with a new recruitment push for dedicated Public Sector, Education Catering and Prison Catering sales roles.
“Prisons, hospitals and other public sector institutions all need access to high quality, affordable and reliable food suppliers,” said Baris.
“We are well positioned to help and look forward to supporting more caterers across the UK.”
JJ Foodservice is EDI-enabled and uses CYPAD to help fully-digitalise the ordering process, improving accuracy and promoting high availability for school and public sector caterers.
