Independents by Sodexo has been awarded two contracts in Belfast – a new catering contract with Victoria College and a cleaning contract addition to existing services at Rathmore Grammar School.
Previously self-operated, the new catering contract at Victoria College which launched last month sees the foodservice firm provide services to the 870 pupils at its Cranmore Park and Richmond campuses.
The company has been Rathmore Grammar School’s catering partner since August 2016 and will now take on the cleaning contract.
Jeremy Alderton, managing director for Independents by Sodexo, said: “Following a competitive process, we are delighted to have been awarded these contracts, it is a testament to our team’s hard work and consistent delivery of quality services.”
Colin Tenner, head of corporate services at Victoria College, said: “We are really looking forward to seeing the new service in place, growing revenues, and delivering the quality of food expected by our pupils, parents and staff.”
Donna Magee, bursar at Rathmore Grammar School, added: “The addition of the school’s cleaning to the contract supports our vision of innovation that has already been bought to the food service helping to provide the quality education our pupils deserve.”
Independents by Sodexo now operates at three education establishments across Northern Ireland.
