Heritage Portfolio wins V&A Museum of Design Dundee deal

Heritage Portfolio has won the contract to run the café, restaurant and events for V&A Museum of Design Dundee.

The Edinburgh-based caterer beat 17 other businesses to the five-year deal, which will see it operate all catering in return for handing over 15% of net sales to V&A Dundee.

It will run a café in the main hall, a restaurant with outdoor terrace overlooking the River Tay, and series of event spaces in the museum.

Philip Long, director of V&A Dundee, said: "Heritage Portfolio will help us to develop V&A Dundee as a food destination, attracting local people and tourists to spend time in our café, enjoy the river views from the restaurant terrace, or organise special events for businesses and private celebrations.

"It's very important to V&A Dundee that our catering partner can look after all of our visitors, from healthy children's meals to after-work drinks, from business events to celebrations, and run this business sustainably to support the museum and the new jobs this partnership will create.

The company runs catering in a number of Scottish venues, including the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, the Scottish Portrait Gallery, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Signet Library and Scone Palace.

Mark Miller, executive director of Heritage Portfolio, said: "V&A Dundee is one of the most important and exciting developments happening in Scotland at this time and we are delighted to be a part of it.

"We're delighted to be joining Dundee's emerging restaurant scene. There is some fantastic local produce and we are looking forward to creating great dishes so that the residents of Dundee and further afield can enjoy delicious home-grown food in spectacular surroundings."
