CH&Co Group has been awarded the catering and hospitality contract at the University of Northampton.

 

The three-year deal is worth over £12million in turnover over its duration.

 

CH&Co is providing catering and hospitality services at the food and drink outlets on the original campuses, extending to new facilities on Waterside Campus from August. 

 

The catering portfolio features nine outlets, including restaurants, cafés, hospitality services, vending and all soft services at a 32-bed hotel, which provides a live training venue for hospitality and tourism students.

 

CH&Co will also refurbish Newton Café on Avenue Campus to bring it up to the high standards of the newer facilities.

 

The partnership has established a three-year sustainability plan that includes: initiatives to significantly reduce single-use plastics, such as removing plastic straws and giving every student a reusable cup; maximising all possible recycling opportunities, such as food waste, coffee grounds, disposable cups and effective waste sorting; using electric vehicles on campus; responsible sourcing that supports local suppliers and producers; and proactively promoting healthy and sustainable meal choices.
