M&S extends convenience store agreement with BP

Marks & Spencer and BP have agreed to extend their convenience store agreement until 2030 as they look to build on the success of their 16-year collaboration.

The companies teamed up in 2005 when the first M&S Food stores were launched at BP fuel forecourts across the UK. Now M&S food is available at almost 300 BP operated sites, with some stocking up to 1,300 different products.

M&S chief operating officer and M&S food managing director Stuart Machin said: “M&S Food is famous for great quality food at fantastic value and over the past 16 years our partnership with BP has given many more customers the opportunity to enjoy our wide range of delicious sandwiches, meals and everyday staples in almost 300 locations across Great Britain.

“This extended commitment will enable us to work together to invest in the look and feel of the stores, building on the M&S renewal programme, and our supply chain to maximise availability and reduce food waste.”

M&S has revealed that customers have bought 13 million bunches of flowers, 25 million bottles of wine and 14 million packets of Percy pigs at the sites over the last 16 years. The figures also show that customers were buying 20% more at BP forecourt stores during Covid-19 lockdowns.

Speaking of the partnership, Alex Jensen, BP’s senior vice president for mobility and convenience, Europe and Southern Africa, said: “We’re proud to continue to build on nearly two decades of our great partnership with M&S, one of the UK’s leading food retailers.

“Of course, our sites provide advanced fuels, but our customers also want high-quality healthy food options, for now and for later. And they also want increasingly convenient ways to buy that fit in with their busy lifestyles. BP’s partnership with M&S Food has led the way in the UK and we aim to continue to innovate and grow to meet our customers’ needs.”
