Bidvest Scotland has announced the release of its latest promotional video from the foodservice supplier’s menu development events held on Calmac ferries in Oban and Gourock last November.

Working hand-in-hand with the VisitScotland Taste Our Best team, Bidvest Foodservice used the away days to develop the menus on key accounts and multi-site operators.

John Forteith, Head of Business Development at Bidvest Foodservice Scotland, said: ‘With 10 vessels in the CalMac fleet accredited to Taste Our Best or higher level, this project looks at their menus to see how we can further enhance them by adding more Scottish products and by improving overall quality on board.

Featuring key personnel from Bidvest Scotland’s team, including Marketing Controller, Terence McMaw and Retail Development Manager, Gordon Smith, the new film aims to showcase the care and attention that the company invests in their client relationships.

Anne Mitchell, Calmac Ferries’ Onboard Development Manager, added: ‘Every ship we have has different operational challenges and it’s that understanding which helps CalMac to work well with Bidvest. We know the choices they come back with are the best option for our customers, and what makes me proud is when I walk on board and I see the final menu and I know what we’ve achieved.

‘We could only really do that with their collaboration and support.’
