We’ve always wanted to create a workplace our team members enjoy, and to be a company our clients really want to work with. For us, as one of the UK’s largest independently owned contract caterers, that means being a business with a social conscience. People expect to see companies operate responsibly, and we want to meet that expectation in everything we do.

This year we have achieved certification to The Planet Mark sustainability programme. This is our first year of business carbon footprint reporting. We’ve calculated the carbon footprint of our support office for the year ending December 2018 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

To keep improving our sustainability performance, we set measurable objectives and targets every year, and monitor progress towards them. From 2019, we are aligning our targets with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ensuring we contribute to the wider international agenda for sustainable growth. Although we support all 17 SDGs, our work means we can affect some of these more than others.


“Growth is good, but only if it’s also good for the environment, communities, and the people who live and work in them.”
Wendy Bartlett MBE,
Executive Chairman

You’ll see what we’ve achieved so far, where we’re on target for 2020, and where there’s more to do.
