University of Otago

Supply of Dairy Products, Milk & Cream

This RFP relates to the purchase of fresh milk products (including cream), cultured dairy (yoghurts, cheeses), dairy products (sour cream, butter) & spreads (margarines) for use in the University Union’s food service and café operations and for the wider University for the provision of staff tea and coffee service.
Also included in this contract opportunity is a non-dairy milk solution for delivery via the campus run to negate the necessity for a second supplier and to efficiently facilitate small volume plant-based alternative milk deliveries and a solution providing non-dairy milk substitutes for University Union College food services, kitchens and café operation.

To facilitate this the RFP proposes splitting the provision into 4 separately awardable categories:
i.Fresh milk including cream for use in the University Union’s food service and café operations.
ii.Fresh milk including plant-based milk alternative option/s (almond, oat, soy etc.) for the campus run and satellite sites.
iii.Dairy products including yoghurts, cheeses, sour cream, butter, & spreads for use in the University Union’s food service and café operations.
iv.Plant-based milk alternatives for University Union College food services, kitchens and café operations.

This arrangement will allow the University to pursue alternative solutions across potentially multiple supplier’s allowing the differing evaluation focuses to be factored and allow suppliers that cannot deliver a complete solution to offer a solution for one or more category. The process will still allow a supplier to supply all or multiple categories if their proposal merits it.
