I recently attended a seminar at The Crown Estate's new offices in St James where the catering is delivered by Vacherin.
The Crown Estate is a client of ours and we assisted them with the catering Tender and provide ongoing support.
The theme of the seminar was healthy eating and agile working; Colin Mooney from The Crown Estates outlined how the new agile offices work, with shared desks and multiple meeting rooms. The value of the workplace being a catalyst for community and cohesion has transformed how people now look upon catering
The Crown Estate have achieved platinum standard in the WELL Standard https://www.wellcertified.com/ which is an initiative about the operating processes within a building, e.g. refreshments and catering, well being and health, a first in the UK. The standard encompasses the use of organic and foods with provenance and focuses on healthy eating.
Coilin summed up the event ‘ collaborative and agile working, health and well-being requires a lot of thought not necessarily investment’
