Premier Foods secures contract with Ministry of Justice

Premier Foods, the UK’s leading food producer, has agreed a four-year contract with the Ministry of Justice to supply all publicly run prisons in England and Wales with Hovis and Mother’s Pride bread.

The deal was concluded following a competitive tendering process and builds on the company’s previous four-year agreement with the Ministry of Justice. Under the agreement, Premier Foods will supply a range of bread products for the preparation of meals.

Andy Riddle, Director of Sales – Impulse, Wholesale and Foodservice at Premier Foods commented: “We are delighted to have re-gained this contract. This is a significant win for Premier Foods and underlines our commitment to building stronger customer relations with the public sector and demonstrates our understanding of their business needs. Hovis is currently the only brand that uses 100% British wheat in the production of our bread and it is gratifying to hear that this commitment to local farmers played a role in the renewal of the contract.

“This contract is a testament to the team’s ability to respond to the customer’s changing requirements and we are proud to have this contract for a further four years.”

The contract has taken immediate effect and will run until 2016.
