Medirest is the UK’s number 1 food service and soft FM provider to the healthcare sector, but that’s only the start of our story…..

We are also proud to say that our UK portfolio represents a significant portion of the Compass Group’s food and soft FM service in the healthcare sector across the globe too.

Compass Group operates in around 45 countries around the world, across 55,000 locations, employing 600,000 team members who serve 5.5 billion meals per year. Almost 25%of ourglobalbusiness is providing high quality food service and soft services to the healthcare care and seniors sector. 

So,what are the benefits of your Trust working with the world’s leading soft FM supplier?

Strength and stability– everyone in the FM sector is rightly sensitised to apparently ‘big players’ being less than robust in times of economic pressure. Compass Group has a proud history. We have worked side by side with our customers since 1941. Through the second world war, through every economic upturn and downturn Compass has delivered for its clients – Medirest is proud to be part of that tradition.

Scale,of course, is an undoubted plus. Due to our huge buying power we can leverage the best possible prices for the highest quality food and ingredients. 

Our ability to invest – Every FM professionalworking in the healthcare sector is acutely aware of the challenges provided by ageing estates and equipment. At Medirest we work in partnership with NHS Trusts to make strategic investments in restaurants and cafeterias, and in the kitchens and equipment to service them, and the innovative patient catering services we provide.   

Focussed approach– Our scale gives us the ability to ultra-focus on specific sectors – like healthcare. We all know that when spending time in a healthcare setting there are many factors that can impact on the quality of your experience. The cleanliness of the facility, friendliness of the staff, the efficiency of services and one of the most important factors other than clinical procedures - the food. That’s why, we have made it our mission to understand what is important to patients, residents, visitors and employees to ensure that we make every experience the best it can be. 

Best in class service provision– our worldwide footprint means that we can draw on an unparalleled level of sector experience to provide you with both tried and tested methodologies, and the latest innovations
