Under the new £5 million deal, Restaurant Associates will deliver best in class food to 700 Wellcome Trust employees in their staff restaurant and cafe.

The 45 strong Restaurant Associates on-site team will also be responsible for delivering conference catering to the meeting rooms, fine dining for large high profile events; and hospitality to delegates using the Trust’s Wellcome Collection conference facilities.

Andy Harris, Managing Director of Restaurant Associates commented: “It is a real privilege to work with the team at 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.”  

Charles Griffin Facilities Manager for the Wellcome Trust said: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Restaurant Associates. The tender process involved some tough competition but they rose to the challenge on all fronts.”

The Wellcome Trust is a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in health by supporting the brightest minds. Restaurant Associates has been working with the Trust for the last 12 years and in this new phrase of this partnership, will build on the food and service provided to date to deliver innovative new food offers based on the latest global food trends and using fantastic, first rate ingredients. As part of this, Restaurant Associates will be refreshing and revitalising the employee dining menus and launching new hospitality menus when the conference and events spaces at the Wellcome Collection re-opens this spring.
