The busiest airport in the UK, Heathrow covers more than 12 square kilometres and handles 70 million passengers each year. It sees 84 airlines fly out to 184 destinations across 80 countries, with nearly 1,300 flights every day. This brings Heathrow a turnover of more than £2.5 billion a year. To keep such a vast operation running, Heathrow needs to employ around 76,000 people across five terminals — with staff working hard throughout the site, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Operating in the construction industry is tough. Large projects have complex schedules, with huge teams of people relying on each other to get their bit of the job done on time. It’s vital to keep everyone working productively — and one aspect of this is catering. If an army marches on its stomach, imagine what that means for a large construction crew.
Since starting in 1993, 2 Sisters Food Group (2SFG) has grown to become one of the biggest food manufacturers in the UK. To meet its clients’ expectations, 2SFG sites operate seven days a week — with many running 24 hours a day. This means that its people need access to meals, around the clock. Eurest took on the challenge to deliver a foodservice offering that met the needs of its people.
Cambridge Consultants had a 150-seat workplace restaurant that was struggling to cope with the demand of providing lunch for the majority of the 400-strong workforce. Together, long-term catering provider Eurest and Cambridge Consultants realised a radical re-think was in order.
Reducing energy consumption was a high priority for Heathrow Airport; with 70 million passengers soaring down the runway every single year, it was no small task. Eurest took on the challenge — cutting the airports energy usage by 25 per cent in the first year.
River Island — a British fashion retailer buzzing with energy and pizzazz — wanted a foodservice offer as leading edge as they are. Eurest stepped up to the plate with menus brimming with bold and vibrant flavours. Fabulous food for the fashionistas.
Fashion leader River Island is a business built on people — and they wanted their foodservice offer to do the same. Eurest’s people at River Island are ambassadors for both businesses, delivering outstanding food, and the result is one brilliant team.
One of the high street’s most dynamic fashion retailers, River Island weaves innovation into everything it does — and it wants funky food to match. From noodle bars to barbecues to ice sculptures, Eurest puts a buzz in its menus and fun in its focus.
When a global materials testing company needed to shrink its foodservice costs, it hoped to keep the impact to a minimum. Eurest’s creative menu planning and positive approach made the transition to a leaner operation a genuinely rewarding one.
A foodservice offer delivering innovation doesn’t seem too much to ask — and when global research leader Campden BRI told Eurest that’s what they wanted, it was all hands to the pump. The result? A destination restaurant that’s the envy of the business.
