NIC Services Group has been awarded a £50 million contract with retailer Morrisons.
Under the terms of the deal, which marks the first time Morrisons has outsourced its services, NIC will be responsible for cleaning services across 500 stores in the UK.
NIC was awarded the deal after a successful pilot scheme, where it said it showcased its knowledge of the retail sector.
The contractor has also worked with Tesco for more than 30 years.
John Spencer, group chairman at NIC, said: “This award is particularly significant, given that Morrisons have never outsourced their services before. I am sure our extensive experience in this sector will ensure the highest standards of service delivery for Morrisons and their customers and colleagues.”
