Sustainability and healthy living

Throughout our contract with this client, we have worked to encourage sustainability and nutrition. Our chefs consistently strive to produce healthy weekly menus full with wholesome meals. Meanwhile, in our vending offerings we have increasingly substituted sugary snacks with healthier bites.

We also introduced a tailored schedule of events for the year. This programme includes a number of events that promote health and wellbeing such as nutritional days run by our in-house nutritionist as well as world environment days. The 2018 World Environment Day was the start of our push to reduce disposables. We set up an information table in the restaurant to explain the impact of disposables to our customers. In addition to this, we introduced reusable cutlery to Man Group floors to further reduce our waste.
