Stonegate Pub Company, the 560 strong national pub group is inviting potential suppliers to pitch their products to them in a bid to find the latest innovation in food, drinks and services. The company, which owns high street brands Yates’s and Slug and Lettuce as well as Scream, Missoula and several non-branded pubs, is hoping to discover the next drinks, food or service craze to storm the industry with its initiative ‘Stonegate Pub Company Challenge’.

Businesses and individuals wanting to secure a contract to supply to Stonegate can book themselves a fifteen minute meeting or presentation slot with the group’s purchasing team on the first Wednesday of each month.

“There are a lot of great products out there but it’s about finding ones that are different, unique and will fit into our businesses”, said Miles Selby, Head of Purchasing. “We are always on the lookout for the next big thing, a bit like bombs a few years ago. Many small businesses have the ideas and products but just can’t get a foot in the door to show people, so that’s why we have our monthly open day. Our brands are leading the way on the high street so it’s important for us to always be ahead of the game when it comes to products and services.”
