Edwards & Blake wins first catering contract in the capital

East Anglia-based foodservice firm Edwards & Blake has made its first foray into London with a new three-year deal with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

The two-site contract, worth £430,000, will see the caterer operate at RNIB offices in Peterborough as well as London's King's Cross, where services will include breakfast, lunch and hospitality to the staff and general public.

Shirley Edwards, managing director of Edwards & Blake, said: "We beat off strong competition from national contract catering firms, which shows how clients are searching for quality food and beverage provision for their staff.

"This contract win is a promising development for the business. Our mission is to provide a flexible and tailored approach, offering a cost-effective and dynamic service to clients. Although we ‘do-different', we will always stay true to our core values and that's what I think the RNIB liked."

Owned and managed by Shirley Edwards and Caroline Blake, the company is based in Swaffham in Norfolk. It looks after more than 85 contracts and has over 500 staff, with an annual turnover of more than £14m.
