Compass Group UK & Ireland, the UK’s largest food and support services firm, has announced a significant new long-term contract with national distribution and outsourcing company, Bunzl.
The new strategic partnership aims to deliver market leading category insight, product and service innovation alongside the consolidation of multiple product categories, simplifying the process for its sites when ordering non-food products.
Bunzl’s expertise in a wide range of non-food categories including disposables, light-catering equipment, personal protection equipment as well as kitchen and design projects will enable Compass to ensure its on-site teams across the country receive the best products and services. In addition, Bunzl’s first-rate distribution network will enable a number of Compass’ existing non-food suppliers to benefit from a national delivery solution, improving the process for both suppliers and Compass sites.

We’ll be working with Bunzl to implement a number of major change programmes in the non-food category throughout the year whilst introducing some exciting benefits at site-level. We have started to build a strong working relationship with Bunzl already and we look forward to working with them over the coming years.”
Matt Johnson, Managing Director for Bunzl Catering & Hospitality Division in the UK added: “Through 6 months of the evaluation process we have established an extremely strong working relationship with Compass at all levels of their organisation. We are delighted with this new partnership and look forward to supplying product innovation and a first class service to Compass as we do for our existing customers.”
