UAE-based business services provider, Transguard Group, has officially marked the opening of its catering company, Taste of Home.
The newest division of the Group was established in 2019 to fulfil a need – to provide site-based employees with delicious and healthy meals at an affordable price and currently has the capacity to produce over 80,000 meals every day out of its 3,500m2 purpose-built facility in Dubai Investment Park.
In order to offer a true “taste of home” the catering company sought out chefs from the very regions for which they cook: North and South India, Pakistan, the Middle East, Africa, the Philippines and Europe.
Dr. Abdulla Al Hashimi, Chief Executive Officer, Transguard Group said: “Food is not only central to sustenance, but it also brings families, people and communities together. We have identified a strong need in the market, especially among site-based expat employees, who want nutritious, good quality and affordable meals that are redolent of the taste and aromas of their cuisine back home. Taste of Home will cater to this hard-working segment that built Dubai and the UAE, and I’m confident we will soon become their popular choice.”
Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group added: “Taste of Home was inspired by our very own employees. Our people are our strength, and our approach to ensuring a customer-centric culture is heavily dependent on a happy and engaged workforce; founding Taste of Home therefore seemed like a natural progression for the business, not just in terms of meeting the needs of our own employees, but as an overall division developed to provide end-to-end business solutions.”
In the short time that it has been operating, Taste of Home has already undertaken a selection of event catering projects, and currently has catering contracts for site-based employees within the aviation, construction, hospitality and retail sectors.
