Mitie lands its biggest ever catering contract in £30m deal with Standard Life

Facilities management company Mitie has landed its biggest ever catering contract with insurer Standard Life, in a deal worth an estimated £30m in total turnover.

Ingredients, the food service division of Mitie, will run staff restaurants, café bars, delis, retail shops, hospitality and fine dining at six Standard Life buildings in Edinburgh in a five-year deal.

Worth an estimated £6 million in annual turnover, Mitie will employ 154 staff to run the Standard Life contract.

Mitie has worked with Standard Life for several years providing them with engineering and interior fit-out services.

In December 2007, it secured a three-year cleaning contract covering the insurer's head office estate in Edinburgh.

Robin Hay, managing director of Ingredients, said: "This contract marks a significant gain for Ingredients, and places the business in a strong position that will aid further growth. We were delighted by the client feedback, saying that we were the innovative and possess a very strong management team."

Craig Hannigan, procurement manager at Standard Life, said: "We awarded the contract as we have confidence in Mitie to deliver a competitive, high quality food service."
