CMSPI is proud to have been awarded Foodbuy’s Services, Equipment & Supplies Partner of the Year at the Foodbuy Supplier Conference 2020.

The award recognises the fantastic relationship CMSPI has fostered with Compass – Foodbuy’s parent company – in delivering multiple cash and card optimisation projects.

Presenting the award on behalf of Foodbuy, comedian Michael McIntyre said CMSPI had fully understood the “complex needs of the business in this category”, and provided “guidance, insight and visibility to best practices within the market and supported the business in reducing the cost of processing payments from customers, whilst also mitigating significant regulatory risk.”


He added: “This is a collaborative partnership which has helped Foodbuy put a great solution in place, delivering real value for clients.”

Since 2014, CMSPI has delivered a reduction in costs exceeding seven figures for Compass. After successful projects in the UK, the Compass UK team introduced CMSPI to other regional teams, with great success ensuing in the U.S.

We look forward to continuing our close partnership with the global team at Compass, and are proud to be named as Foodbuy’s Services, Equipment & Supplies Partner of the Year 2020.

As the project lead for our work with Foodbuy in the UK, it has been fantastic to watch our relationship go from strength to strength over the past 6 years. We’re now delivering value to Compass and Foodbuy’s wider client base on a global scale, and we’re proud to partner with such an inspiring team.

Jennifer O’Neill, CMSPI’s European Senior Consultant

Wayne Ashall, Managing Director at CMSPI, said: “I’m delighted to see the CMSPI team, responsible for the great relationship with Foodbuy, recognised for the hard work and significant value they have delivered. As the payments landscape evolves, so do the requirements of Foodbuy and its clients; and as an embedded extension of their team, I have been proud to see the proactive nature of our business adapt to their evolving needs.”
