University catering consultants

We have a wealth of experience operating university catering services. From retail food courts to traditional college hall dining we know how to deliver great catering services within tight financial guidelines.

We assist self- operated catering departments get their act together and compete on the same basis as the big contractors.

We can help tender your catering service or provide a value for money exercise to make sure that you are receiving the best deal available.
