Catering for Carlsberg

National brewer and distributor, Carlsberg UK has awarded 7 Day Catering the contract to manage the catering and hospitality services at their sites in Northampton and Birmingham, to include vended service, a restaurant, hospitality, supply and operations.
At the Northampton Brewery site, employing 500 staff, the contract also provides weekend and nightshift services. Carlsberg offers a variety of catering provisions for all tastes, including the ‘meet & eat’ high street style café, which offers premium coffee, targeting the ‘grab and go’ market with sandwiches, salad and fruit boxes plus a range of home-made muffins. The site has been re-branded to reflect the growing need for high quality food and beverages in a high street styled environment.
7 Day Catering has also worked closely with Carlsberg to upgrade its main restaurant, improve on-site marketing, new hospitality catering and menu design. Having previously used an outside caterer for hospitality provisions, 7 Day Catering is working with Carlsberg to bring this function in-house. At the Birmingham distribution centre the restaurant will have four catering staff supporting its 350 staff.
Martyn Stockwin, General Manager at 7 Day Catering, comments: “Our goal is to create a restaurant environment where Carlsberg employees can feel comfortable throughout the day, with excellent food offered which will far exceed anything available on the high street. 24 hours a day, seven days a week!”
The contract also covers 12 new vending machines offering a choice of foods, premium drinks and confectionery together with a fresh bean to cup offer in the meet & eat café.
David Bodily, Company Property Manager at Carlsberg, remarked: “We chose 7 Day Catering because we felt they showed a true understanding of our requirements in meeting the needs of our employees. Their flexibility and 24-7 approach really made them stand out. We aim to give our staff not only excellent quality fresh food but to provide a relaxing environment and that’s exactly what we have achieved.”
