Section II: Object
Manchester Central is currently looking for a Contractor to supply sandwiches to Manchester Central Convention Centre and Manchester Town Hall Complex.
Estimated annual spend for sandwiches is circa 128k GBP. Spend is estimated on current supply and Manchester Central are unable to guarantee such levels of purchasing. The Contract will be for a period of one (1) year, with a Manchester Central only option to extend for a further period of twelve months. The anticipated Contract start date is December 2019.
As a world-class international convention centre, Manchester Central requires products of the highest quality.
The successful contractor will provide premium sandwiches for all event types, including pre-packed premium retail sandwiches, pre-packed delegate sandwich wedges for lunch bags, uncut sandwich ‘stacks’, filled paninis, toasties, and wraps. All products must include various dietary options, including gluten free, vegan and halal.
Given the dynamic nature of the events industry, the contractor will be expected to respond to orders as required, potentially with a last minute or same day delivery, including Saturday delivery.
Due to the dynamic nature of the events industry, the contractor will be expected to respond to orders which may come in peaks and troughs. Due to such event peaks and troughs, orders of higher numbers must be available at certain times. If a product is not available in the quantities required, the contractor must notify Manchester Central as early as possible and provide alternative products of the same calibre.
The successful contractor will work in partnership with Manchester Central’s executive chef to review and offer new suitable seasonal fillings on at least a six-month basis.
