With over 12,000 kg of turkey, 8,000 kg of carrots and 15,000 kg of potatoes on the menu, Chefs in the companies 150 contracts are busy preparing for the deluge of customers over the festive period.

Mark Johnson, Sales Director at 7 Day Catering comments: “Looking at the numbers, it can seem rather daunting - the sheer volume and quantity of ingredients is incredible. Our 1300 employees throughout the UK really enter into the spirit each year and keeping abreast of current eating trends is something the team sees as crucial.”

Leading up to Christmas 7 Day Catering offer customers a variety of alternative festive foods as well as the traditional full fayre. There are Grab ‘n’ Go options such as turkey and cranberry slices, roast gammon sandwiches and of course homemade mince pies. This offers something quick and convenient to those customers who may not have time to sit down to a three course lunch.

However, tradition still prevails and the full three-course Christmas menu continues to be a popular choice. Mark continued: “In terms of looking after our customers, they can expect more in terms of ambience, service and product quality for their money. People want to celebrate the festive season and our menus offer a really hearty warming treat, not just a basic turkey dinner.
