Restaurant Associates wins £5m Wellcome Trust contract extension

Restaurant Associates (RA) has extended its catering contract with the Wellcome Trust for a further three years in a deal worth £5m.

The executive dining division of Compass Group has operated at the charitable foundation's London offices for 12 years. The new contract will see RA continue to offer in-house dining to 700 Wellcome Trust employees in their staff restaurant and cafe.

RA's team of 45 employees will also be responsible for conference catering, fine dining, events and delegate hospitaility within the Trust's conference facilities.

Andy Harris, RA managing director, said it was a privilege to work with the Wellcome Trust.

"We're extremely pleased that our 12 year partnership with them is continuing and we have some really exciting and innovative plans in place to take the food and service we provide to the next level," he added.

Charles Griffin, facilities manager for Trust, said: "The tender process involved some tough competition but [Restaurant Associates] rose to the challenge on all fronts."

The Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation that aims to achieve extraordinary improvements in health by supporting the brightest minds.

This new phrase of the contract will see RA revamp the employee dining menus and launch new hospitality menus when the conference and events spaces at the Wellcome Collection re-opens this spring.
