Catering Disposables - 538

Catering Disposables
This framework provides customers with a route to market for the Supply of Catering Disposables, meaning customers do not need to publish their requirements by OJEU or pre-qualify suppliers in order to procure products and services.

Lot 34: Catering Disposables
Customers can procure a wide range of catering disposables including: plastic and paper cups, cutlery, plastic and paper plates, food cartons, foil, cling film, table covers and food storage.


Who can use the framework?
The framework is available to the wider public sector, social housing organisations and voluntary and community sector bodies. For a full list of eligible customers please see the following link:

How can I use this framework:
Customers can ‘call off’ from this framework agreement (i.e. use this framework to establish a contract) via direct award or mini competition.
Direct Call-Off Order - Customers are able to identify the supplier who can provide the lowest priced goods/services to meet their individual requirements. The customer is able to directly approach the supplier and issue a direct order to them.
Mini-competition - Customers who are not able to identify the supplier who they can provide the lowest price for goods/services are able to undertake a mini-competition involving all suppliers.

Step 1 - Complete the Customer Access Agreement and return to YPO.
Step 2 - Review the User Guide to establish whether your needs can be met by a single supplier or whether you need to conduct a Further Competition. Page 10 contains more information on how to place an order. If you decide that a single supplier can meet your requirements based on the pricing and/ or other information provided in the User Guide simply place an order with that supplier. Alternatively, if you decide you need to conduct a Further Competition you may do so by seeking quotations from all of the suppliers that are able to meet your requirements. More specific details on how to conduct a further competition can be found in the user guide.

  • Reduced timescales Customers don’t need to run a full OJEU procurement through this framework as it has already been done by YPO. All you need to do is identify your requirements, present them to the market and award a contract. This also benefits suppliers as they only need to complete OJEU procurement.

  • Ease of useSimple to use with expert advice available from YPO.

  • Excellent choice of supplier - more details can be found on the supplier tab or the user guide

  • Legality - A fully legal framework in line with EU regulations

  • Assured supplier standards - Providers are ‘pre-qualified’ as to their general suitability, which means when buying services from them, customers are assured they can meet specified requirements

  • Pre-defined terms and conditions - terms and conditions of the contract have already been established, signed and accepted by suppliers.
