Thomas Ridley commences new City Pub Group contract

Thomas Ridley Foodservice – acquired by Bidcorp earlier this year into its Caterfood group – has commenced a new hospitality contract to supply 37 of the 43 City Pub Group establishments.

Aragon House in London is one of the City Pub Group’s venues now being supplied by Thomas Ridley.

The City Pub Group’s portfolio stretches across southern England and into Wales and includes a wide range of pubs, restaurants and hotels in East Anglia and London.

The new supply contract marks a significant inroad for Thomas Ridley in supplying hospitality customers across a much broader geographical area.

To fulfil the agreement, Thomas Ridley has added 57 new lines and is supporting the City Pub Group with ongoing menu development.

Natalie Edwards, group account controller at Thomas Ridley, said: “The size and geographical spread of this contract shows that we’re geared up to accommodate this type of customer and feel that our reputation for providing a high level of service and great products pairs really well with City Pub Group’s reputation for creating great spaces and fantastic food and drink experiences.”

Vincent Glouton, group executive chef of City Pub Group, added: “Thomas Ridley have really impressed us and we feel that our deliveries are in good hands. We needed Thomas Ridley to add quite a few new nominated lines for us across frozen, chilled and ambient and they’ve turned everything around really quickly and efficiently, which is great.”

Thomas Ridley supplies more than 2,000 customers across education, healthcare and hospitality. Its main depot is in Bury St Edmunds, and this is supported by a satellite depot in Kent for deliveries across London and the south east.
