Potential catering service providers invited to Moray Council event at Elgin Town Hall

The MORAY Council invites potential catering providers to inquire about what is involved in helping to feed Moray’s children.

Businesses interested in supplying fresh meat, fruit and vegetables or baked goods to local schools are invited to attend the Food for Moray event at Elgin Town Hall on Tuesday June 7th.

Attendees will have the chance to speak with the catering and procurement teams to learn about school procurement criteria and what is involved in the application process.

They will also hear from existing vendors about their experience in providing fresh produce to the board.

With new contracts available from the end of this year, Moray Council catering manager Elaine McRae said now was the perfect time to get involved.

“We are often asked what companies have to commit to or how are they approved to supply our schools locally,” she said. “This event will explain everything suppliers need to know so they can engage with our contracts.

“Potential suppliers should also keep in mind that they don’t need to be able to supply the entire Moray area.

“Our Business Gateway advisors, supply and catering teams will be on hand to discuss any questions you have and provide an information pack for companies considering joining our fantastic supply chain locally.

“We are also keen to hear from potential suppliers how they perceive the tendering process, so that we can help make it as efficient as possible for everyone involved.”

The Food for Moray event runs from 12:30-5:00 p.m. on an informal, walk-in basis, with catering and sourcing presentations at 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

There will be coffee, teas and homemade scones for attendees to enjoy while learning about these vendor opportunities.
