Shetland meeting

We travelled to Shetland recently to meet two SMEs as they get ready to do business through our contracts.

Shetland Freezer and Food Centre has been awarded a place onto our Frozen Food framework that helps councils source a range of tasty produce to serve up in communities.

GTS Central Ltd has been awarded onto the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) framework and the Education and Office Furniture framework.

Lesley Richard, our Strategic Procurement Manager, said: “I was delighted to meet Shetland Freezer and Food Centre and GTS Central Ltd recently.
“The three new frameworks were specifically designed to unlock opportunities for SMEs, and together with other suppliers on the contracts, both Shetland companies now have the opportunity to secure a share of the business – which is good news for the local economy.”

Our Director Julie Welsh added: “Our portfolio of frameworks help Scottish councils buy the wide range of goods and services they need to deliver services to the public. Our contracts bring many opportunities for Scottish businesses, regardless of their size or location, and it’s great to see Shetland SMEs join our frameworks.”
