We are delighted that this has been achieved through new wins, client retention and through the hard work and talent of our brilliant team members. They are ultimately the ones to thank for delivering on our promises to clients.
“This year has been fantastic, as we have seen a number of large and diverse clients place their trust in us as their catering providers. Having a profitable and financially-stable business, with cash in the bank and no borrowings, means that we can continue to invest primarily in our team and in new exciting technology.”
