Lexington Catering has scooped a prestigious new contract to feed staff at Guardian News and Media's London headquarters.
The independent caterer is understood to have won the business from BaxterStorey, which took over the running of the contract when it bought the trading assets of Jill Bartlett when it collapsed into administration in 2010.
When Jill Bartlett was first appointed in 2008, the contract was to feed 1,300 staff and estimated to be worth around £1.5m in annual turnover. Hospitality services were also included in the deal.
Guardian News and Media is based at Kings Place in King's Cross, North London, which is also home to hospitality business Green & Fortune and Network Rail, another BaxterStorey client.
Lexington Catering declined to comment. Guardian News and Media and BaxterStorey were unavailable for comment.
A spokesperson for BaxterStorey said: "We are very proud to have worked with the Guardian since we took over from Jill Bartlett in 2010.
"We are very sorry that they have decided to make a change but wish them every success in the future."
