Catering Academy signs £1m healthcare contract in Wales

Foodservice company Catering Academy has signed a new healthcare contract, worth £1m over five years.

The company will operate two contracts with Pembrokeshire Housing in Wales, including at Merlin's Bridge and Steynton, delivering a three-course lunch offer to more than 100 residents across the two Homes for Life schemes.

It will also oversee a coffee service and themed events such as the Pudding Club, and Nutrition and Hydration Week.

Each resident will now receive a welcome pack containing the spring menu, an annual calendar of events, a welcome letter, flyers, and a questionnaire.

Housing director at Pembrokeshire Housing, Graham Holmes, praised Catering Academy for its understanding of each resident's needs, and welcomed the company's enthusiasm.

He said: "This service is important to our residents and they were an important part in the assessment process. I have been impressed by the can-do attitude of the Catering Academy team."

The new deal comes in light of Catering Academy's appointment of a new general manager for healthcare, as part of its overall plans to increase business in the healthcare and care sectors.

The company already has significant contracts within education, including at Reading College, Cambridge Regional College and Adam's Grammar School in Shropshire, as well as other deals including a £1m contract with field marketing agency CPM.
