Fully managed catering tenders packages and on-going compliance assessments

A thoroughly planned and professionally implemented tendering process is key to a highly successful and cost-effective relationship between an organisation and its catering provider.

Many clients who commission a tender of their services achieve significant financial savings, as the process highlights deficiencies in their former contracts that were possibly the result of ill-matched service requirements or the lack of a sensible catering policy. The wholesale review of the arrangements in place, delivered through the tender project, will establish a viable and relevant new base position.
