M&S Food and BP have agreed to extend their 16-year convenience agreement until 2030.

They first teamed up in 2005 to introduce M&S Food stores at BP sites in Great Britain, which are now available at almost 300 BP operated sites.

“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,” said Alex Jensen, BP’s senior VP for mobility and convenience in Europe and South Africa.

It is hoped they will move forward together as customers’ behaviour continues to change over the next decade.

Jensen continued: “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.”

Chief operating officer and M&S Food managing director, Stuart Machin, added: “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.”
