Elior awarded top Scottish catering job

Elior UK has secured a five-year catering contract with The University of Dundee - one of Europe’s leading universities

Posted by Hannah Oakman | February 25, 2014 | Catering & hospitality

Serving staff and students from a total of 62 different countries, Elior will provide hospitality and catering across two sites on campus.

Elior is investing to create a contemporary dining space for customers to relax, work and socialise. Opening this month is The Garland Café, situated in the Wellcome Trust Building.

Recognising the cultural and ethnic diversity of its customer base, the menu will include an eclectic range of bowl food – from traditional Scottish dishes to Elior’s range of modern, global street food concepts. These will include: ChU*, based on Malaysian, Indian, Oriental and North African cuisine, and Vietnamese style noodle and soup offer, Umami.

The second operation will open later in the year, on completion of a new £16m state-of-the-art Centre for Translation and Interdisciplinary Resources (CTIR). Elior will be opening the brand new Street Café serving barista prepared coffee, artisan sandwiches, cakes and fresh pastries.

Nigel Jobson, business development executive, Elior UK, says: “The University of Dundee was looking for a dynamic and innovative caterer who could deliver a first-class product and service to a very diverse population. Elior has invested, and will continue to invest heavily in concept development and customer service training. We have all the tools we need to provide this discerning and brand conscious audience with a great customer experience.”
