THERE’S “NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL” ABOUT OUR FOODSERVICE SOLUTIONS.

It’s about knowing what matters to you, what you and your people want and then delivering the right solution, with the right food at the right price with the right team.

OUR MUTUAL LOVE

WE LOVE FOOD AND WE FREELY ADMIT IT; WE ARE UNASHAMEDLY ‘FOODIES.’ IT’S IN OUR DNA AND HAS BEEN FOR OVER 70 YEARS.

We all need to take time from whatever we’re doing to eat and recharge; we dedicate our love of great food to make meal times memorable and fun but above all, something to look forward to.

The old expression that an army marches on its stomach was never truer than in the world of commerce, business and industry. A well fed workforce is a happy workforce; and a happy workforce performs better – happiness breeds success.

We make the joy of sitting with friends and colleagues – escaping for a few precious moments away from our desks or daily work responsibilities – one of the highlights of the day, through tasty, wholesome food, sourced sustainably and ethically.

Insight

Our unique ingredient

IN ORDER TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU WANT, WE LIKE TO GET TO KNOW YOU, YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR PEOPLE, SO WE CAN THEN RELATE THAT KNOWLEDGE TO OUR LEARNINGS FROM THE PAST 70 YEARS AND DELIVER WHAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS.

We believe that insight and research is the lifeblood of innovation and by listening and reacting to what our customers want, it allows us to make constant improvements to the service we provide.

We also keep you up to date with what’s going on in the industry, through our unparalleled access to market-leading industry insight and knowledge, such as IGD, Allegra, YouGov and Mintel. We blend that with feedback from our extensive regular customer surveys (over 25,000 face to face, completed last year alone). This helps us maintain industry leadership, by spotting trends and opportunities as they arise.

We’re driven by a thirst for real knowledge and conduct a market-leading trend survey, ‘Eating at Work,’ which now incorporates a selection of European countries to provide an international viewpoint.

It’s a simple formula; combining research insight with new ideas and best practice makes your foodservice operation more successful, through happy customers who just keep coming back for more and are generally happy to spend a little bit more.

Variety

The spice of life

AS THE SAYING GOES, VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE… AND GIVEN THAT WE SPEND A THIRD OF OUR WAKING LIVES AT WORK, IT’S HARDLY SURPRISING THAT CHOICE COMES HIGH ON THE LIST OF ANY BASIC MEAL REQUIREMENTS.

Range and choice are our two watchwords, coupled with a combination of traditional and non-traditional cuisines, in order to keep both traditionalists and experimenters happy; from British or global cuisine to the latest trends, seasonal dishes, value propositions or eating on the go, we take your taste-buds on a voyage. With Eurest, you can eat like a local, wherever you are in the world – and wherever you’d like to be!

Innovation

Flavour in the making

Delivering the flavours of tomorrow is one of the most thrilling aspects of what we do. The best of our tried and tested menus are in The Source, our directory of recipes — but we’re also always looking forward to see what the magic of tomorrow might be.

Our chefs and food development teams are bursting with ideas, which we capture and bring to life as quickly as we can. Our Innovation Forum turns those ideas into reality — and the results haven’t just delighted our customers, they’re winning us awards too.

The Forum acts like a funnel. Great ideas go in the top, and we rigorously test recipes and work out what kind of customers will enjoy them. Our executive and regional chefs play a key role in this testing, along with our commercial and business excellence teams; suppliers and clients will have a role too. The best ways to present the new ideas to customers are also developed and then strong, exciting, tried-and-tested menus and products pop out of the end of the funnel — ready to go.

Eurest won the 2013 Workplace Catering Solution Menu Innovation and Development (MIDAS) Award for the Innovation Forum’s work, commending our pop-up menu platform and commitment to using customer insight.

Tailor Made

For You

BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND THE PRESSURES ON CONSUMER SPEND AND COMPETITION FROM THE HIGH STREET, WE CAN KEEP ONE STEP AHEAD; DEVELOPING THE RIGHT FOOD AT THE RIGHT PRICE, BY TAKING TIME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU AND YOUR CUSTOMERS WANT, USING THE BEST QUALITY, FRESH, SUSTAINABLY SOURCED PRODUCE AVAILABLE.

It all starts with food planning and our unique nutritional know-how to create tasty fresh food, created specifically for you and your people. You will not get exactly the same offer as any other client, because each business relationship is unique, with individual needs and wants.

We are proud to feed the nation’s workforce – morning, noon and night (and often 24/7), throughout the UK. From full-service restaurants and cafeterias to Grab and Go ‘pods’ to unique site solutions, we’re determined to provide the best food possible, whatever the meal occasion.

And by casting our experienced eye over the facilities available, we’re able to commit to promises and an activity plan that meets the requirements of today, while planning for tomorrow.

Getting the price right

NO MATTER WHAT WE RECOMMEND OR WHAT YOU WANT, COST AND BUDGETING BOTH FIGURE LARGELY IN THE FINAL EQUATION.

Of course price is vitally important to every one of our customers. It is to us too. That’s why we make listening to what you want and what you want to pay such a priority. For us, finding the right price for the foodservice solution that’s right for you is the foundation of a lasting relationship. And as well as listening, we also open every stage of our pricing process up to you.

Being part of Compass Group UK & Ireland means we can make the most of economies of scale on your behalf. We also work hard to identify opportunities for saving within our supply chain that we can pass on to you. So if you can’t see the value in something, we’ll find a way to take that cost out.

From the start, our open and rigorous approach will give you the best possible price. And we stand by that claim by linking at least half of our fee to achieving performance criteria set by you — freeing you up to focus on running your business.
