Harbour & Jones wins a hat trick of London contracts

Harbour & Jones (H&J) has scored a hat trick of new contract wins in the capital worth in excess of £3.5m.

The boutique contract caterer won new business at the British Standards Institution (BSI) Group, the Medical Defence Union and investment managers JM Finn & Co over a three month period.

Patrick Harbour, director and co-founder of H&J said: "It's been a tough business climate, but we're very encouraged by our performance in the last three months."

The most recent win saw H&J take up a three-year rolling contract at the Medical Defence Union earlier this month. The contract for the not-for-profit organisation based in Southwark is worth around £250,000 a year. H&J is providing a full hospitality service and staff trolley to the 300 people on site.

Meanwhile H&J began a new contract at the BSI in Chiswick, west London, the world's first national standards body, in January. The deal is worth £2.5m over five years.

The contract, previously held by Compass Group, was won following a competitive tender process managed by Stern Consultancy. H&J now operates the staff restaurant for around 700 people on site and provides hospitality services. Annual turnover at this site is currently £500,000.

Across town in the City, H&J took over the hospitality and fine-dining services at investment management firm JM Finn & Co from in-house caterers. The rolling contract with an initial period of two years is worth £178,000 in annual turnover.
