Why go out when you can eat in?

We are Fooditude, the UK’s most positive, people focussed workplace caterer. Previously known as Just Hospitality, we have been shaking up traditional contract catering norms since 2005. Our vision is to make people happy, no matter what the work day brings and we do it by bringing company culture to life with our brand of freshly prepared food and inspiring services.

Over the years we’ve worked with some of the best FMs in London, providing them a viable alternative to the traditional contract catering model. Fooditude’s delivered-in approach saves FMs the hassle and cost of building on site kitchens – along with all the labour that’s involved in maintaining that type of operation. Fooditude produces everything in a central production kitchen and then delivers both hot and cold food to clients. We have our own staff on site to take care of service and health and safety and all our sites have 5 star health and safety ratings. Whether it is catering for daily breakfast, lunch and dinner or providing occasional office treats like happy hours, barbecues or even a posh afternoon tea, we answer the catering question for FMs.

But don’t just take it from us. We’re proud to count some of the world’s leading tech and media firms like Twitter, Dropbox and Verizon Media as clients. Here’s what some of them have to say:

“Fooditude’s clever chefs, cooks and servers have created a niche market service that is the best kept secret in London.” – John Dickman, Global Food Program Manager @Twitter

“Fooditude consistently surprise us with their creativity and the quality of cooking they can achieve in a contract setting. The food is restaurant standard and the team a pleasure to work with – one of the best supplier relationships we’ve had.” – Dan Barnby, Facilities Manager, CBRE @ Verizon Media

Cooking healthy food for over 1000 people every day isn’t all fun and games. A lot of thought goes into planning these menus at that scale and ensuring they are well-balanced, nutritious and sustainably sourced – while also being a joy to eat. Dean Kennett, our managing director, says: “As contract caterers we’re feeding our clients the majority of their food for the day so we feel the onus is on us to keep it healthy. But, it’s not just about how healthy our food is, or how balanced in calories, it’s also about how it makes you feel, and how we, as your caterers, can contribute to your overall well-being.”

It’s this close connection with our clients and our commitment to working in partnership with them to reach their goals for a healthy workplace that sets our service apart from the high street food offer. Companies are becoming increasingly aware of the benefit of workplace food for supporting company culture. Almost all of our clients offer lunch to their employees as a perk. To be a perk our offer needs to meet or exceed the high street in diversity of choice, quality, even aesthetics. In addition to our daily food offer, we also host pop-ups, wellness talks, artisan food tastings, and farmers markets – just to name a few. All this serves to delight our diners and keep our offer fresh. We think the high street is great for lunches, but it’s no competition for having a creative catering partner to keep teams engaged with their workplace and motivated to do their best work.

2019 is an exciting year for us. We have just launched our rebrand and are poised to move into our new 20,000 sq’ central production kitchen. If you’d like to meet a food partner who will help make your staff eat happy, come along to one of our open days in March. Or, invite us to pop by for a visit and we can give you a few pointers on how to bring your food programme to life. Email hello@fooditude.co.uk
