Sodexo has announced the acquisition of leading London contract caterer, The Good Eating Company.

Sodexo has announced the acquisition of leading London contract caterer, The Good Eating Company – and it’s a great match as the two businesses share a vision to grow their presence in metropolitan areas, including the competitive and dynamic workplace-dining marketplace in London and Dublin.

Over the last 18 years The Good Eating Company has continually developed its offer to bring the definitive standard in workplace dining to leading organisations including those in the creative, media and arts, investment and financial management and pharmaceutical industries.

The Good Eating Company will continue to operate independently with chairman John Harris and managing director Carlos Mistry leading the business and its 260 employees.

Sodexo will provide valuable support in terms of development and resources which will enable The Good Eating Company to continue to focus on delivering innovative food solutions. Sodexo in return benefits from a new premium, food-only offer to sit alongside its existing integrated facilities management offer.

David Bailey, CEO, corporate services, Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “Their ethos and passion for food is a perfect fit for Sodexo. We acknowledge that some clients want a more boutique-style offering tailored to the needs of the client with food at the heart, and only food. This is where GEC excels.”

John Harris, chairman of The Good Eating Company added: “We are passionate about food and that is what our highly skilled people do best, that will never change. This move will enable us together to take the next step in this exciting journey.”
