Pelican is proud to support the CUBO association as a Golden Partner and we are enjoying our first CUBO Annual Summer Conference in Manchester, taking place this week (Wednesday 27th – Friday 29th June).

The Pelican team – Michelle Parnham and Simona Hardy – who are attending the event, have been meeting with many Universities and learning about their challenges which include:

  • concerns that they are receiving the best prices in the market place for all the products they buy
  • restrictions on working with local suppliers
  • spending too much time on manual administration which covered wide range of tasks from handling supplier invoices, reconciliation, menu costings, allergen and nutrition data, stock management
  • lack of financial visibility across all their units.


Pelican's specialism is bespoke food and beverage procurement and supply chain management – delivering operational savings and efficiencies.

Pelican has developed some successful partnerships with a number of universities and colleges including: Keble CollegeUniversity of Birmingham, Queen Mary University of London,  St Hugh's College, Leeds Beckett University, to name but a few.
