Levy UK + Ireland extends contract with ExCeL London after 22 years

Sports and entertainment foodservice provider Levy UK + Ireland has announced a "long-term" contract extension with ExCeL London.

The length and value of the deal were not disclosed.

The contract caterer, which is part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has partnered with ExCeL London since 2000 and provides food and drink for conferences, events, hospitality and retail sales.

Levy UK+I will support ExCeL London, known to be the largest events venue in the city with 4m annual visitors, with a technology offering designed to speed up service times.

The contract extension will also lead to the development of four Levy UK+I apprentices at ExCeL.

Both businesses have expressed a commitment to sustainability, demonstrated through Levy's 2027 Climate Net Zero goals, which include non-air-freight fruit and vegetables, seasonal menus and consumer-facing carbon-labelling.

Jon Davies, managing director of Levy UK + Ireland, said: "Levy UK + Ireland is delighted to continue this journey with ExCeL, one of our longest standing clients. We have achieved a huge amount over the past 22 years, but there is more work to do and as a business we thrive on keeping pace with the continually changing environmental landscape.

"In ExCeL we have found a strong partner who shares our ambitious sustainability goals and targets. We are looking forward to pushing the boundaries and showcasing what can be done through a united approach to net zero aspirations and technological advancements."

Simon Mills, chief commercial officer at ExCeL, said: "Food is an essential part of any event experience, and often the element guests will remember the most.

"We have seen a notable shift in consumer trends with visitors now expecting a diverse range of exciting, tasty, high-quality, contemporary, and sustainably sourced food and beverage offerings and through our partnership with Levy UK + Ireland that's exactly what they get when visiting ExCeL."
