Joint Headline Sponsor – CH&CO
CH&CO creates uplifting catering and hospitality experiences across many locations, including workplaces, destinations, venues, events, education, livery and healthcare.
Food has the power to make people feel good, and that goes beyond what’s on the plate. Great food experiences lift the spirit, bring people together and fuel emotional positivity and physical wellbeing. This is our motivation across our areas of expertise, which include event catering, workplace cafés and restaurants, corporate fine dining and hospitality, visitor attraction catering, pupil and staff feeding at state and independent schools, university cafés and restaurants, hospital staff and visitor restaurants, hospices, Livery Hall catering, venue sales, event management and production, and reception and concierge services.
The actions we take today have consequences for our children and grandchildren’s future on this wonderful planet, that’s why we take a long-term approach to operating in a socially responsible, sustainable way; it’s part of who we are.
We’re very proud to be the largest and most diverse contract caterer to be awarded the top level three-star rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA). Our partnership with the SRA helps shape our policies in line with the latest developments and challenges so that we continue to make positive changes. For example, in November 2019, we won the Feed People Well award at the Food Made Good Awards, recognising our innovative approach to feeding school children well and inspiring a positive lifelong relationship with food that’s good for them and the planet.
Our team of over 10,000 employees – from kitchen porters, catering assistants and chefs through to front of house teams, nutritionists and office-based support – create memorable hospitality experiences at nearly 1,100 locations across the UK and Ireland.
Working with our clients, we help meet their sustainability goals and those of their customers; focusing on wellbeing, supporting communities and doing what’s right for the planet.
When we were asked to create a vegan menu for the Global Good Awards, we jumped at the opportunity to push boundaries and create innovative, delicious dishes that were sustainable from start to finish. It led the way as the first public event to serve only a vegan menu and we’re thrilled to continue to be part of this important movement.
CH&CO holds a Royal Warrant for the provision of catering services to HM The Queen.
