South-West FM firm launches catering division with purpose

Bristol-based facilities management company, Almeda Facilities has launched a new business division – Food with Passion (FWP).

The new initiative and concept launched by the family-run business aims to change perceptions around food and sustainability by valuing local, organic, nutritious and ethically sourced produce above everything else.

Its vision is to deliver ethical health and wellbeing, ensuring that the general population make better food choices and are ultimately happier and healthier.

It also gives organisations the opportunity to re-invigorate their on-site staff restaurants and food areas.

International building materials company Hanson UK has already engaged Almeda to completely renovate its in-house restaurant, with the family-run firm not just building the space but also providing and cooking the food.

As part of the process, Almeda surveyed staff on the types of food they wanted and created a menu around this which is rich in vitamins, minerals and iron.

Gordon Cox, who has been brought in to head up Food with Passion, commented:

“What we’ve launched isn’t just another catering division that has been bolted on to a facilities management offering. FWP is simply about the desire to do the right thing.

 “It takes the collaborative efforts of many who share a conviction to change an industry through educated and heartfelt decisions that bring about meaningful transformation. It’s about being ethical, sustainable and responsible, supporting local food suppliers and minimising our impact on the planet.”

Food with Passion aims to be the leading authority on food based health and wellbeing in the UK.
