The proof is in the pudding
Our clients are our lifeblood. Since our launch in 1998 the company has grown through strongly-forged partnerships with clients, where mutual trust and understanding has allowed us to provide the very best advice and practice particular to each circumstance and need.
The spread of our client base, from Business and Industry through to Education and Healthcare, means that we can share our accumulated knowledge and experience of these sectors to ensure that not only do all our clients get outstanding value for money, their clients and staff are provided with interesting, healthy and well prepared food and drink.
Food should be a pleasure to prepare and a pleasure to eat so we are also deeply involved in the environment in which both activities take place. We have developed an innovative design and build service for kitchens and eating areas alike to provide safe, productive and pleasant working conditions and comfortable and attractive restaurants, dining rooms and break-out areas.
The Pride Customer Promise – We promise to put our customers first in everything we do. We provide fresh food and fresh ideas combined with a fresh approach. We work in partnership with our customers and clients to make quality our way of life.

“I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for inviting us to the conference yesterday, both Chris and I enjoyed the conference very much. We are glad it was a success for you all. It is a good time for us to catch up with everybody.
We do attend quite a few of these events; the location is fantastic, being able to browse while you get on with the business side is a bonus. The other very noticeable point is that all of your delegates appear to enjoy themselves.
Thank you again and hopefully see you at the next one.”
