Talkington Bates secures four contract wins

Caterer Talkington Bates has secured four contract wins with a combined turnover of £1m per year.

It will cater for the London Borough of Camden at its new building on Pancras Square; the RSPCA headquarters in Horsham, West Sussex; the Bristol Port Company; and National Oilwell Varco in Gloucestershire.

The contract caterer has revived menus and renovated catering facilities at the four sites.

The five-year contract with the London Borough of Camden will see Talkington Bates provide breakfast and lunch in the staff restaurant and public café. The building has an average footfall of 15,000 per month including their 1,500 members of staff. Hospitality services, kitchenette provisions and coffee pods will also form part of the deal.

At the RSPCA headquarters it will provide breakfast, lunch and hospitality events for the charity's 400 staff. Talkington Bates' Freedom Food Certification was a key part of the account win and it will be used throughout its menus.

Breakfast, lunch and hospitality catering will also be provided for Bristol Port Company, where its eating facility is also open to the public as well as a variable number of staff.

Services for National Oilwell Varco include breakfast, lunch, hospitality and vending options throughout the facility for its 350 staff and contractors.

Paul Bates (pictured), chairman of Talkington Bates, said: "I'm delighted to get the chance to cement some long-standing relationships with these contracts through our focus on fresh, quality food and exceptional service levels.

"The diversity of catering options we provide is demonstrated through these sites and the whole team works hard to offer innovation at every opportunity, not just with the food, but ways of working as well."

Talkington Bates was founded by Janice Talkington and Paul Bates in 1997.
