£200m turnover results from companies' merger

18 July 2016

A three-way merger has been announced between CH&Co Group, education caterer The Brookwood Partnership and its sister company ABsolutely Catering.

A turnover in excess of £200m has been claimed by the newly-formed group, providing catering across more than 600 sites around the UK and employing nearly 6,000 people.

It has also been announced that Brookwood co-founders, Kate Martin and Sue Parfett, will remain as managing partners, continuing their current roles.

Joining with CH&Co Group will allow Brookwood to compete more effectively, the company said, building on client services and creating new opportunities for employees.

It will also provide CH&Co with a larger presence in the independent and state school catering market.

CH&Co chief executive officer Bill Toner said: "As we've proven over the past year since CH&Co merged with Host and Catermasters, it is possible to have a larger group but maintain the feel and personal contact associated with smaller companies."

Brookwood and ABsolutely Catering will continue to operate independently, Mr Toner confirmed.
