News: Premier Foods extends Capgemini outsourcing contract


Premier Foods, the UK's largest food producer, has once again renewed its long-term IT outsourcing alliance with Capgemini UK plc in a new contract worth an estimated £9m for the five-year period 2014-2019.

The contract covers the Premier Foods IT infrastructure including data centre and technical support for all core business systems.

Systems supported involve hardware at Capgemini 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.

Under the contract Capgemini will continue to support the IT infrastructure that underpins the many famous Premier Foods brands such as Hovis, Ambrosia, Mr Kipling, Sharwood's, Batchelors, Quorn, Loyd Grossman, Oxo, Bisto and many others.

Phil McCallum, Director of IT & Infrastructure at Premier Foods, said: "We have built up a very effective working relationship with Capgemini over a number of years.

"The degree of trust and confidence between our two businesses has continued to grow, and I am therefore delighted that Capgemini has been able to offer us a technically and commercially attractive proposition reaching right through to 2019."

Avril Francis, Senior Account Executive at Capgemini UK plc, added: "Our client management and service delivery teams have consistently risen to the challenge of anticipating and meeting Premier Foods' evolving needs, and of demonstrating their commitment to continuous improvement and real collaboration.

"It is great news that their efforts have been rewarded with this important new contract."
