Catermasters and Host announce over £27m of new and retained business for 2016

Catermasters and Host, CH&Co Group’s businesses specialising in business & industry workplace catering and healthcare, close 2016 in a strong position of growth, having secured more than £27m in new and retained business.

The new deals equated to £12.5m in turnover over the duration of the contracts. And, almost £15m is attributed to re-tender success and the retention of existing clients, as well as organic growth through the expansion of contracts to include additional client sites.

The diverse range of new and retained clients includes, amongst others, Barbon Insurance Group, XPO Logistics, and one of the largest employers in Corby.

Across the portfolio, Catermasters and Host will deliver quality, innovative catering concepts and solutions, supported by impeccable service, for the restaurants, delis and coffee bars it operates, and create the engaging and memorable food experiences they are known and respected for.

Tony Carr, Managing Director for Catermasters and Host, comments: “2016 has been a great year. We’re thrilled to have added new clients to our portfolio and to have retained and developed existing contracts. The fact that clients are keen to work with us and expand our partnerships is testament to our chefs’ culinary skills, the great client relationships our teams enjoy, and to the focussed service delivered daily.

"The feedback we’ve received has been fantastic. Clients, old and new, are impressed by our creativity and innovative concepts, the enthusiasm of the teams, and our ability to challenge the norm. A common theme is that we successfully understand our clients’ requirements and cultures and that’s vital in helping us deliver services that reflect their own values and vision, and the demographic and needs of their employees and customers. We look forward to building on these successes into 2017."
