Our Procurement Approach

At Orian, our procurement approach means wherever we can, we will use local suppliers to provide ingredients for the delicious meals our teams create each day.

Using local suppliers is part of our commitment to the supporting local economies in those areas we provide services. This includes Cumbria, the North East of England and the North West of England.

As well as helping to protect the environment, it also means we can keep costs as low as possible, without compromising on quality, for our customers.

Using local suppliers not only ensures food remains as fresh as possible due to it having a shorter journey, it also cuts down on the amount of travelling for delivery on road or rail – therefore helping to protect the environment.

We think that having close links with the best providers of quality food supplies in our area means we can work directly with them more easily,protect prices and ensure even the very smallest suppliers get a fair deal.

Our suppliers link directly with the end customer too – many of them have visited schools to talk about the journey an ingredient takes to become part of a delicious meal prepared by an Orian kitchen team member.

If you are interested in becoming one of our local suppliers, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
