News: Premier Foods awards five-year IT contract to Capgemini UK


Premier Foods, the UK's largest food producer, has awarded to Capgemini UK plc, through the renewal of an earlier contract for support of legacy IT, a five-year project for data centre and technical support of all its core business systems. The contract covers the period 2009-2014 and is expected to be worth approximately £9 million in total. Capgemini UK, which won the contract against bids from other leading multinationals, will deploy its Rightshore strategy, which makes its global resources available to UK customers, on behalf of Premier Foods and their famous brands, which include Hovis, Ambrosia, Mr Kipling, Sharwood, Batchelors, Quorn, Loyd Grossman, Oxo, Bisto and many others. Systems will run on hardware at Capgemini secure data centres in Rotherham and Bristol, with additional support from the company’s infrastructure management command centre in Krakow, Poland, and from a Capgemini development centre in Mumbai, India. Capgemini is also working with Premier Foods on other business projects, including a new business intelligence system based on SAP, and a supply chain track-and-trace project for the company’s Hovis division.
