Oliver Packing and Equipment
See Bid/RFP documents for additional submission details.
After conducting a complete search of available sources and consulting with various vendors, there is only one source for this required service. Oliver provides the sealing machines and maintenance while purchasing their items. We have found that other vendors do not provide machines or maintenance and require us to purchase current machines as they become outdated. Various vendors such as Ben E. Keith Foods, Shamrock Foods, Sysco Foods, Just the Best and Sobien's will provide Oliver trays with a 30% increase on top of what we currently pay ordering directly form Oliver. Webstaurant Store provides a similar 3-compartment tray (lids purchased separately) for $97.28 per case (250 trays) which comes out to $.39 a tray whereas Oliver's 3- compartment tray (film included) is $198.22 per case (800 trays) which comes out to $.25 a tray.
