The TUCO framework agreement for confectionery, snacks, soft drinks, cakes and ancillary products is due to expire on 15 November 2019. In response to member feedback provided through the regional meetings and an online survey, we will not be re-tendering this agreement in it’s current format, but creating a new agreement to cover ‘Retail’

The new agreement aims to not only cover elements of the current confectionery agreement, but also encompass a much wider remit to meet the requirements of members currently operating retail, café and convenience outlets.
We aim for the new agreement to be live and ready to access in early 2020, so in order to cover the crossover period of the current framework ending and new retail agreement commencing, please extend your supplier agreements by 6 months.


For any questions relating to this product category please contact Category Manager, Nicola Mellor.
If you have any questions or wish to put forward your suggestions for the new retail agreement, please contact Category Manager Kim Ashley.

  • Are all your suppliers vetted and accredited?

    Yes. Dependent on the product category, we will have assessed the supplier’s credentials to be able to supply the goods and/or services.  Please see the SQ (selection questionnaire) questions relative to the product category you are interested in.  High risk food suppliers e.g. sandwich suppliers are also continually audited to ensure they meet food safety requirements.
