Well, what a year 2022 has been!
As we reflect on this last year in TalkingtonBates, we’ve been pleased with all that we have accomplished even though the world has been in disarray.
Despite the backdrop of national and global events;
3 Prime ministers
A War on European Soil
Cost of Living increases
And finally coming out of a crippling Pandemic
In 2022, we have managed to navigate these challenges and;
Grown our team with Food Develop Director Jack Wilkinson, Leslie Murray our HR partner, and Jamie Higgs as Executive hospitality chef
Signed worth over £1.2m in the last quarter of the year with 3 new contracts signed and has put us on our way to our Pre Covid turnover
Retained our ISO accreditation 9001 & 14001
Created some incredible employee engagement campaigns such as the healthy eating week and mental wellness initiatives
Retained some key contracts with our great service from our teams & delicious food
Attended the renewed foodie event of Taste of London to develop food innovation
Coffee and Vegan & smoothie bike pop-ups
Hebe, our nutritionist, gave Nutritional Lunch and Learns
Yuki produced some ‘Green shows’ pop-ups with all things Sustainability
The only way is up in 2023, we look forward to all that is to come;
Ready to open a brand-new contract in January 2023
A production CPU space planned for early 2023
Launching ‘Lunch and Learns’ on the cost of living and ‘Food inflation fighter’ series
Focus on well-being and Sustainability as we support our clients’ employees & the planet
Global kitchen feasts and foodie concepts
Earth-friendly food concept range
We are proud to have achieved some big wins this year and with the rise of food inflation and the impact of the cost of living, we are mindful to do our part in supporting customers. Whether it is sharing reducing food waste recipes or creating wellness initiatives we’ve also been taking a fresh look at how we do our sourcing. People's Sustainability and Wellness are high on our agenda for 2023.
As the landscape of the workplace evolves, we are working to make workplace hospitality a better, more productive, experience for all.
