Premier Foods has excellent relationships with the vast majority of its suppliers and is passionate about supporting small and medium size businesses.  Here are the facts:

  • Small and medium sized businesses make up a significant proportion of the Company’s supplier base.  Of our top 500 suppliers (accounting for 97.2% of our total annual supplier spend), 228 or 42% are businesses with less than 250 employees.
  • The amount we spend with these suppliers represents one quarter of our total supplier spend . This is the same % target that the Government aspires to for public procurement.
  • Over the last 12 months, we have spent nearly £8 million more with these suppliers.
  • At our 2014 annual supplier awards, three out of the five winners were small and medium size businesses.
