Mount Charles Group signs five-year University of Ulster catering deal

Northern Irish foodservice provider The Mount Charles Group has signed a five-year deal to become the exclusive in-house caterer for the University of Ulster.

The new deal has also created 30 new jobs, adding to the 1,300 existing positions.

The contract is said to be part of a wider diversification plan for the group, into Universities in particular - although it opened its first contract outside Northern Ireland in 2012. The exact amount of this particular deal could not be disclosed at this time but it was confirmed today to be in the region of several million pounds.

Managing director of the Mount Charles Group Cathal Geoghegan, said: "We're confident we will provide students with the variety, convenience and value that they need.

We have been working closely with the University to redesign the facilities and develop a range of modern food offerings, all of which are a world away from traditional canteen style service."

Head of catering and conference services at the University of Ulster Judith Hamilton, said: "We are very pleased to welcome The Mount Charles Group on board. The new catering outlets have rejuvenated the campuses, are customer focused and bring a level of professionalism and presentation that the modern day student expects."
