Jason Atherton signs new five-year Compass contract

Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton has signed a new five-year partnership deal with caterer Compass Group.

The new contract will see Atherton work more with the wider Compass business as well as the company's executive dining brand Restaurant Associates where he has been consultant chef since 2010.

In the past five years, Atherton has taken part in guest appearances, VIP client dinners, charity events, demonstrations, talks and presentations to the team of chefs. In May 2014, he teamed up with Restaurant Associates to open City Social on the 24th floor of Tower 42, which received a Michelin star within six months of opening.

Going forward, the 2012 Cateys Chef award winner is expected to work more closely with Keith Prowse, which is part of the sports, leisure and hospitality business, Levy Restaurants.

Commenting on the announcement, Atherton said: "I love working with Restaurant Associates and its talented team to help enhance their commitment to providing the highest quality of dining to clients. I'm looking forward to working with the wider Compass Group in the UK & Ireland and worldwide, as well as Levy Restaurants, to help create tailored and innovative food offers that suit their customers, creating menus that are of world-class quality."

James Boyle, managing director of Restaurant Associates, added: "Restaurant Associates is committed to providing clients with the highest quality catering and services. Jason is a very special talent and the work we have done together over the last five years has been outstanding. Partnering again is a great way to show our clients, customers and our people that we're dedicated to culinary excellence."
