Wilson Vale wins Midlands catering deal

Foodservice firm Wilson Vale has won a catering contract with Rhodia UK, part of the international chemical group Solvay, at its Oldbury manufacturing base in the West Midlands.

The deal, which is for an undisclosed sum, comes as an extension Wilson Vale's contract to offer catering services at the company's Watford corporate headquarters since 2006.

Andrew Wilson, co-founder and managing director of Wilson Vale, said: "Our new catering operation in Oldbury strengthens our foothold in the Midlands so it is a very welcome addition to our portfolio. It is always satisfactory growing the business from existing business as it underlines the relationships which we build with our clients."

The new contract officially started on 28 May when the independent caterers took over from the incumbent caterers, Compass, who had held the contract for 27 years.

Wilson Vale now manages a breakfast and lunch service for 250 people on site.

Ranbir Padda, purchasing manager for Rhodia UK, said: "We have extended the business with Wilson Vale because we feel that their ethos is a good cultural fit with Rhodia UK Ltd. Their fresh food focus will ensure that our catering offer is consistently high right across our operations."

Wilson Vale's current annual turnover is £17m and the company employs 550 people nationwide.
