A FOOD service provider is set to open a new depot in 2025 - creating 200 jobs.

Bidfood, one of the UK’s leading foodservice providers, has confirmed Worcester as its new location, taking its total number of sites up to 27. 

The Worcester depot will be approximately 60,000 square feet, and will be the latest addition to the company's growing infrastructure.

The site will be based on the Worcester Six Business Park, which Bidfood says will provide "excellent transport links to the Midlands region".

Mark Wood, chief operating officer at Bidfood said: “Worcester will provide an excellent addition to our network and offer some much needed capacity in and around the Birmingham area. 

“The introduction of yet another new depot continues to emphasise the importance that we place on long term investment in our infrastructure.

"The addition of this new depot will further enhance our ability to provide our customers with service excellence and ultimately place us closer to them.” 

This month also marks the official opening of Bidfood’s latest depot in Bedfordshire, becoming one of the company’s largest sites to date at 160,000 square feet,  strengthening its service across the south east of England.
