Bidvest Foodservice Scotland triumphed in the Corporate Responsibility category at the Scottish Wholesale Association’s Achievers Awards (SWA) ceremony last week.

Bidvest Foodservice general manager Scotland, Jon Mack (pictured second from right), said: ‘This year we worked with a number of local suppliers to help them find a route to market, which also opened up the Scottish larder to our customers. This win is testament to our commitment to sustainability, and it ties in with our recently launched industry website, plate2planet, an initiative which revolutionises how the industry shares green knowledge, guidelines and best practice examples with customers and other key industry stakeholders.

From energy consumption to community projects, our sustainability strategy covers a comprehensive spectrum of initiatives.’

Meanwhile, the company’s Scottish depots have been working on their own sustainability and community initiatives, including the introduction of load-shedding into freezers – enabling the equipment to be switched off for up to three hours at a time – and working with WRAP to cut food waste.

Held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh, the SWAs are in their 14th year and aim to honour exceptional individuals, teams and products across the industry.

In addition to the CSR award win, Bidvest Foodservice Scotland also took second place in four other categories, including: Best Delivered Operation – Foodservice; Best Marketing Initiative; Great Place to Work; and Employee of the Year (John McCluskey, Heat of Operations at Bidvest’s Edinburgh depot).
