Swing like Alison and RieBear…

RieBear loves to help serve better food and that is why RieBear is BGL Rieber’s ambassador to public sector caterers.

RieBear was first introduced in 2016, when a number were put up for ‘adoption’ and their new owners were asked to tweet their photos together.

Since then we’ve added to the family.  The latest addition, is Chef RieBear, specifically introduced to celebrate 70 years of the NHS.

RieBear has joined public sector caterers on their travels, near and far, they’ve really taken RieBear to heart; or in this case, to the zip wire!

In what we believe is the bear’s longest overseas trip yet, RieBear is pictured with HCA Vice President Alison McCree, MD of Synchronicity Care Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust.

Alison and RieBear went zip wiring in the St Lucia Rainforest during a recent holiday break – thanks Alison, looks like you and RieBear had a great time.

“The HCA also celebrated its 70th birthday last year and are the unsung heroes of the health service. They do fantastic work to promote and improve catering in healthcare and we are proud to do our part in assisting you and your members.  Thanks for caring,” said Gareth Newton, MD, BGL Rieber.

If you would like to adopt your own RieBear, please contact us – and tweet your photos with RieBear on your travels, let’s see how far RieBear can go!

Photos should be tweeted using #Riebear @bglrieber or send pictures to and we will tweet the pictures on your behalf.
