Eurest, the workplace division of foodservice giant Compass Group UK and Ireland, has been awarded a contract by Royal Mail to deliver services including catering across nearly two-thirds of its sites until 2025.
The B&I company has already worked with Royal Mail for 22 years and will create a new scalable, sustainable and nutrition-led menu to boost employee health and wellbeing as part of the new contract. This will include 280 dishes, seven new hot counter concepts, a promise of 80% British produce and a 25% reduction in calories per 100g of food. Each recipe has been assessed by Eurest's team of nutritionists.
Morag Freathy, managing director, B&I – Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: "We are delighted to be working with a company with such strong heritage and we are committed to delivering an equally strong service to Royal Mail. Over the past year we've seen huge innovation and have developed new concepts to bring to the table. Covid-19 has forced us to rethink our workplace dining offer and we look forward to bringing this to life at Royal Mail."
