Caterplus and Elior share £25m housing association contracts

Foodservice operators Elior and Caterplus have between them snagged catering contracts with national retirement housing provider Hanover worth £25m.

The new contracts commence on 1 April, a year after the business was put out to tender, and includes 59 out of Hanover's 70 extra care housing estates across the country.

The five year contract was split into three regions, with incumbent operator Elior retaining the business in the South and West. Caterplus picked up the contract for the North.

Hanover's director for extra care, Claire Anderson said: "We've listened to residents' views and it's clear that they] really value their catering service. They want fresh, high quality and nutritionally balanced meals with plenty of choices which suit different tastes and needs."

In order to represent residents' views and to assist with the catering tender Hanover's catering and procurement team recruited 65-year old resident Janet Mizzen to research and collate residents' views.
