Exciting Menus and Innovative Food Concepts

Our food development team work with your on-site Catering Manager to develop exciting menus and innovative concepts that reflect diverse food trends such as "Plant Powered Kitchen" and "A Taste of Asia".  Each Catering Manager has the freedom to create bespoke recipes to meet the dietary needs and tastes of your customers.  We don’t dictate cooking specifications and encourage cooking creativity and freedom.  


Fresh & Locally Sourced Food

Our catering managers have the freedom to purchase their food from an array of nominated local suppliers. Unlike the national caterers, we don’t restrict what they can purchase. 

57% percent of our food is purchased locally and 76% is prepared from scratch which means better quality, fresher ingredients for your customers.  You won’t find cook-in sauces, powder soups or custard mixes in our kitchens.


A Healthy, Balanced Diet

We promote a healthy, balanced diet across our sites through regular themed days each month as well as food and drink sampling sessions and food development activities. It’s never mundane in one of our sites!

Our team of Executive chefs and Added Value Coaches visit schools across the North, deliver engaging educational sessions with children on a range of topics, including the importance of eating a wide variety of fruit and vegetables!
