Bidvest Foodservice has agreed to partner with MRCT

News

August 2015

We are pleased to announce that Bidvest Foodservice has agreed to partner with MRCT after taking over the fresh food business from 3663 in Harlow and will now continue to provide low dated / end of line fresh food (normally deemed as wastage) to the Bounty Club.  This food will be redistributed to front-line professional agencies and other organisations and charities working in Harlow and the surrounding area.


“We are delighted that Bidvest Foodservice have agreed to partner with the charity after taking over the 3663 business in Harlow and this will greatly help us as we serve local people “for the benefit of the community”.  This partnership benefits will be twofold as it not only reduces the companies food wastage it also helps and supports local people who are finding it difficult to make ends meet each week.”

Gary Knott, Director of Community Services
