Wilson Vale wins £2m-plus pharmaceutical contract

A Leicestershire catering company has won a contract worth more than £2m with a global medical firm.

Wilson Vale Catering Management will supply a catering service for hundreds of Sanofi-Aventis staff at their three UK sites.

The three-year deal with one of the world's biggest pharmaceutical companies is worth £750,000 a year, and the contract was won in competition with eight other catering companies.

"We had a strong year in 2008 which has given us the platform to do well this year," said Andrew Wilson.

The company employs 400 people, split between its Ashby headquarters plus catering operations in Leicestershire and Rutland.

The Sanofi-Aventis contract involves catering for workers at sites in Dagenham, London, Northumberland and Cheshire.

Wilson Vale was founded in 2002 by the Vales after they left caterer Avenance (now Elior UK) to go it alone.
