Catering industry

As workplace caterers we know the importance of great breaks for employees to refuel and reset for the day ahead, so our partnership with Mental Health UK is the perfect accompaniment to the nutritious food we serve. Alongside our donation per coffee sold, regular awareness campaigns such as stress management and avoiding burnout have been really well received by clients and our own people alike.
