Sodexo’s event caterer Heritage Portfolio wins at Perth Racecourse

Heritage Portfolio has won a 10-year catering contract at Perth Racecourse in Scotland.

The Edinburgh-based event caterer was selected following a competitive tender process after which Perth committed to introduce a more niche and tailored catering provision for its race days and busy events programme.

Heritage portfolio recently became part of the Sodexo group following Sodexo’s acquisition last year. Sodexo has been the catering provider at Perth since 2005 and now makes way for its own recently acquired subsidiary ensuring a smooth transition to Heritage Portfolio.

The contract launches ahead of Perth’s 2019 season, which includes 15 race meetings running from April to September, and covers other events, conferences and weddings, supported by the adjoining Lodge at Perth Racecourse hotel.

Hazel Peplinski, Perth Racecourse Chief Executive, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome the Heritage Portfolio team to Perth as our catering partners in time for the 2019 season. The tender process was extremely hard fought and was handled sensitively following Sodexo’s purchase of Heritage Portfolio during the negotiation.

“Heritage Portfolio has demonstrated a natural focus to align with our brand and adopt our culture, while their partnerships with other local and Scottish producers sits perfectly with our own ethos. The aim of the partnership is clear – Heritage Portfolio will provide an enhanced customer experience to match enhanced expectations, creating an exponential lift in quality and service throughout the racecourse.”

Heritage Portfolio’s Mark Miller said: “We are delighted to be the new catering partner with Perth Racecourse. We pride ourselves in working with the UK’s most prestigious venues and we’re chomping at the bit to launch the new season with Perth Racecourse.”
