Delivering on our strategic vision

Bidcorp’s strategy

 

We continue to focus on higher margin freetrade business.   Key to our strategy remains category development and growth of high value specialist products.   Adopting a “direct-to-customer” model continues to deliver improved results.   Opportunities exist in each of our markets to grow entrepreneurially led businesses like Bidcorp.

 

     
Responsible procurement    

Our suppliers are specialists in their product, as well as ethical and sustainably minded, located as close to the source of the food as possible. We source both quality wholesale foods and a large range of catering equipment and non-food essentials.

We are proud to say we take a sustainability-based approach to product sourcing, minimising the impact of our carbon footprint, whilst ensuring fair labour practices are at the forefront of all stages of our supply chain.
