Grazing expands CPU in Bermondsey

Delivered-in office and venue catering specialist, Grazing, has extended its central production unit (CPU) in London’s Bermondsey by almost 50 per cent having taken on the lease of a neighbouring unit.

Grazing’s CPU has been based out of Bermondsey’s Old Jamaica Business Estate since early 2007. The new space will allow the business to produce more than 1,000 additional meals per day.

The expansion is in response to growing demand for catering solutions that can be produced offsite, delivered in, and tailored to the needs of offices with fewer than 1,000 onsite workers at any one time, as well as the flexibility to deliver once, twice or three times a week, depending on attendance.

Since the beginning of the year, four people have already been recruited into new positions at Grazing’s CPU with plans to bring an additional six people into the business to staff the larger space.

Sam Hurst, Chief Grazing Officer, Grazing, said: “It’s always been our intention to expand our CPU as we grow and we plan to take on more space in the future, with the aim to double the size of the business in the next three years. Office managers are getting tired of using pricey delivery apps that don’t adequately cater for the office environment but still need a solution for feeding their employees, which our model is ideal for.  

“We’ve made a sizable investment growing our CPU footprint and production capacity to keep pace with demand and it set us up really nicely to service future business.”

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
