SIBA statement following conclusion of competitive tender for supply to Stonegate Pub Partners
Following a competitive tender process for the supply of independent keg and cask beer to the Stonegate Group SIBA have today responded to the news that Stonegate will be working with the Beer Company.
James Calder, Chief Executive of SIBA said:
“SIBA’s bid focussed on the diverse and high-quality range of beers available from independent breweries, on best in class technology and on premiumising the category. We are understandably disappointed not to have been chosen to move forwards in partnership with Stonegate. However, this was a competitive tender process and we respect the decision of Stonegate to work with the Beer Company. We wish Jo and the team at Stonegate good luck for the recovery ahead.”
