In Case Studies

The Fabian Society is Britain’s oldest political think tank. Founded in 1884, the Society is at the forefront of developing political ideas and public policy on the left. The Society aims to promote:

greater equality of power, wealth and opportunity
the value of collective action and public service
an accountable, tolerant and active democracy
citizenship, liberty and human rights
sustainable development
multilateral international cooperation

It was important for the society that the catering reflected the aims and ideals of the society. Of course, the price was of paramount importance, the society is a charity so the rate was critical. Our commitment to the environment was another factor, reduction in transport miles / zero to landfill / composting of all food waste etc. Of particular significance was our story of staff retention, the average length of service of the staff at Mayfair is 6.3 years, this compares to an industry average of fewer than 2 years (the caterer April 2014)
