The Royal College of Physicians Meetings & Events (RCP) has announced it has signed a five-year catering contract with CH&CO, an independent hospitality caterer.
CH&CO’s client portfolio provides catering services for companies, charities and organisations. It also holds a Royal Warrant for the provision of catering services to Her Majesty The Queen for six years.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association, an organisation which aids food-service businesses to work towards sustainability, has recently awarded CH&CO three stars for its commitment to sustainability.
This includes increasing the proportion of vegetable-led dishes on its menus to combat environmental damage, purchasing high welfare meat and dairy products, serving sustainably caught fish, sourcing fairly traded produce and offering healthier food options.
The new catering contract coincides with the launch of RCP’s new autumn and winter menus. The international cuisines include sushi, pie and mash, Korean yum buns, British cheese, meat stations, Mexican Quesadillas and American deserts.
Natacha Allen, head of commercial events, RCP Meeting & Events, said: “We are excited to be working closely with CH&CO for the next five years. We are proud of our high standards and reputation for first class food, wine and service and CH&CO’s sustainable and socially responsible ethics align well with our own.”
