Foodbuy forms strategic partnership with Elis

Procurement organisation, Foodbuy, has entered into a strategic five-year partnership deal with international textile, hygiene and facility services solutions provider, Elis.

Under the terms of the contract, Elis will deliver a full range of hospitality laundry services, including rental and maintenance of chefs’ uniforms, kitchen porter uniforms, table linen, event linen, kitchenware and laundry services to more than 600 locations in the UK, including corporate catering, schools, universities and sports and leisure sites.

Elis will support Foodbuy by working with its clients, including Foodbuy’s parent company and largest client, Compass Group UK & Ireland.

Ian Murphy, Managing Director of Foodbuy said: “We’re really excited to be forming a strategic partnership with Elis. They’re a multi-service provider which means they can accommodate a wide range of requests, but they also offer tailor-made solutions. This means we can provide our clients with a more efficient service, saving them both time and money, whilst helping them focus on their core businesses.”

Operating in more than 28 countries, Elis directly sources its garments from manufacturers and offers full supply chain transparency. Elis has invested in radio-frequency identification (RFID) and barcoding technology to allow Foodbuy and its clients to manage and track inventory, no matter where a garment is in the supply chain.
