Brakes has confirmed that it is taking over contracts of former DBC Foodservice customers after negotiations with DBC’s receivers.
In a statement issued today it said: “Brakes has been asked by Baker Tilly, the official administrators, to help in ensuring continuity of supply to DBC’s customer base.
“To this end Brakes has acquired an option to assign a number of DBC’s customer contracts. We have not acquired any part of the operating business of DBC.
“Our experienced team has developed detailed contingency plans to ensure a smooth transition for any customers who have been affected and who wish to transfer to Brakes.
“Our priority is to ensure that they can continue to do business as usual and we are now in the process of transitioning into our network those former DBC customers who have consented to Brakes becoming their supplier of choice.”
