Sodexo Prestige wins Southwark Cathedral contract

The UK's largest event caterer and provider of corporate hospitality packages, Sodexo Prestige, has secured a prestigious contract to provide exclusive conference, banqueting and visitor catering services at London's historic Southwark Cathedral.

In addition to catering and hospitality services, Sodexo Prestige will be providing sales and marketing support to the Cathedral's conference centre, which includes five conference rooms of varying capacity and the Millennium Courtyard which can be used for events for up to 400 people.

The contract, which begins in May, will see Sodexo Prestige introduce a daily great British breakfast, traditional Sunday lunches and a new bistro-style menu in the visitor restaurant, as well as a new coffee kiosk outside the Cathedral, facing the famous Borough Market.

"We are extremely proud to have been awarded such a prestigious contract for a unique and historic venue in central London,” said Jason Richards, head of business development at Sodexo Prestige. “The Cathedral is steeped in history and we have devised an innovative offer to complement the surroundings having also given a commitment to purchase our core ingredients from neighbouring Borough Market."

Commenting on the new agreement, The Very Reverend Colin Slee, the Dean of Southwark, said: "The Southwark Cathedral site stands in the long tradition of Augustinian monastic hospitality and has historically played host to feasting. We welcome Sodexo Prestige into this tradition and look forward to working together to ensure we provide all our visitors with an excellent and enjoyable service."
