Your trusted catering partner
Coronavirus has had a disproportionate impact on the catering industry, with minimal notice given of restaurant closures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
At OCS, we work with customers to ensure employees eat in a controlled environment rather than venturing outside of their workplace to find food outlets, reducing the potential transmission points. And, while there is no evidence that COVID-19 is spread by food, changes in operation will be required to ensure the return to work is safe for all workplace restaurants.

Our future solutions will continue to adapt in line with Public Health England and the devolved Government's guidelines and changes to social distancing requirements.
Your expert service provider
We know how important food is to health and wellbeing. Our customers choose us to provide nutritious and delicious menus that have a positive impact.
Our chefs use high-quality ingredients and locally-sourced produce where available to create diverse menus that cater to many dietary requirements and tastes. We take into account customer feedback and market trends to ensure our menus remain enticing. We also work with popular high street brands such as Costa and Starbucks to provide different menu options and special offers. And we keep customers coming back with convenient technology such as our Virtual Deli and SmartPay systems.
Sustainable options for your business
Our commitment to buying locally-sourced produce where available has reduced our food miles by 500,000. Our other environmental initiatives include waste-to-water food digesters and recyclable food containers. Our suppliers are accredited with a number of assurance schemes, including the Red Tractor Assured Food Standards scheme, the Soil Association and Fairtrade.
We have adopted the European Chicken Commitment to meet higher welfare standards for 100% of the chicken in our European supply chain by 2026.
