Success built on a True Passion for Food

14 February 2011


TALKINGTON BATES HAS ESTABLISHED an unrivalled reputation for its passionate approach to food and this is reflected in the dishes served up in a diverse range of catering outlets.
The company’s focus on bespoke catering solutions means the food it provides is
individually tailored to clients’ needs. It prides itself on original ideas and concepts for all types of business – big and small, B&I to care sites – with regular culinary innovations to keep menus fresh and exciting.
The quality of its offering was once again underlined in 2010 when it picked up a number of industry awards including winning the Association of Catering Excellence (ACE) Ready Steady Cook Team Challenge – against competition from 15 other contract caterers – and days later was named Contract Caterer of the Year 2010 by lunch!, the UK’s premier event for the food-to-go industry.
Talkington Bates provide prestige Directors’ Dining solutions, with a focus on quality,
seasonality and provenance, giving clients everything from fine dining to breakfast canapés. Directors’ dining requires a more ‘bespoke’ approach enabling it to create a unique twist using different ingredients and service equipment.
Other catering services include: Deli service, offering freshly made-to-order wraps, baps and salads; ‘Grab & Go’, providing ready-made food for people who need to eat on the job; all-day Coffee Bars, complete with home-made cookies and cakes and ever-changing ‘Main Event’ stations catering for the wide and varied tastes from around-the-world from breakfast all the way through to dinner.
Talkington Bates is an environmentallyfriendly business and fully committed to using fresh, local, seasonal and organic produce that is sustainably sourced. It uses
100% biodegradable packaging, provides cotton "bags for life" for customers wherever possible and also supplies a full range of biodegradable items including sandwich and
salad boxes.
