Turnover falls but profit rises at Aramark's UK arm

Aramark Limited, the England, Scotland and Wales arm of global foodservice giant Aramark saw a 6% decline in turnover in 2016 but enjoyed a 61% rise in pre-tax profit, according to its latest accounts.

Accounts for the year to 30 September 2016 showed that turnover was sown to £288.7m from £308.2m the year before.

Pre-tax profit stood at £6.6m, up from £4.1m the year before.

The figures cover a period that saw long-serving chief executive Andrew Main, who had been at the company since 1994, resign. Desmond Doyle, formerly chief financial officer, also left to become chief financial officer at Brakes UK.

Aramark provides a range of food, vending and refreshment services for clients across a variety of sectors including: business and industry; education, healthcare, defence, judicial; and offshore oil exploration.
