Excellent service

Our business is to serve our clients. We achieve this by providing best-in-class-service at all levels of the company. But to make this work, you need the right mentality. From the boardroom to the warehouse, every employee works to deliver on our client promise: excellent service.

Full compliance

Ensuring full compliance at all stages of the business process is standard procedure at B&S. Clients and other stakeholders expect and demand the toughest criteria to be applied across all compliance issues – from food safety through to customs clearance – and we follow the same rigorous principles. Internally, we invest a great deal of time and resources into ensuring compliance is top-of-mind and managed to the highest standards.

For example, we are:
• ISO 9001:2015 certified, which specifies requirements for a quality management system 
• ISO 22000:2018 certified, the highest risk management system for food processing set at the highest level.
• ISO 14001:2015 certified, the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS).
• ISO 45001:2018 certified, the international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system
• AEO (authorized economic operator) certified.
• US PHC approved facilities

We take pride in the fact that we operate the European Union’s most extensively licensed bonded warehouses, and follow compliance processes and procedures that are certified to the most stringent standards. But our compliance goes way further than solely that. From the quality specifications our clients demand, special packaging, to links between IT systems, or adapting our procedures to our clients’.

Single source supply

Our clients have total choice and freedom when selecting from the more than 40,000 goods we hold in our range, enabling them to choose as few or as many items as they wish. With single source supply, once clients have made their choice we take care of the rest. From sourcing, consolidation—a critical part of our service—to shipping, customs clearance, and delivery anywhere in the world. Whether we're supplying military or peacekeeping forces in Afghanistan or Somalia, or cruise ships in the Mediterranean Sea, we deliver our suppliers' products on time, every time. We build strong partnerships with A-brands and leading producers from a wide variety of sectors.

Solid partnerships

We are the largest cruise line food supplier in Europe, and supply all of the world’s major cruise operators. Each season we deliver to more than 60 cruise vessels.
