Food service provider BaxterStorey has secured a new catering contract with Japanese global beer brand Asahi House in Surrey.
Supporting the brand’s commitment to sustainability, the Woking office houses four beehives producing honey sold in the restaurant with proceeds going to charity, alongside a herb garden that supplies freshly picked ingredients for chef recipes in the restaurant.
Other initiatives include recycling coffee grounds from the in-house coffee blend Allpress, for customers to reuse as fertiliser in gardens, and fuelling the company cycling enthusiasts with spinach, avocado and ginger smoothies and protein power balls from BaxterStorey’s ‘Healthy Me’ range, to support Asahi’s aim to cut carbon emissions through a cycle-to-work scheme.
Complementing the food is an eclectic mix of Asahi-branded beverages at the on-site bar, open to employees twice a week, with a selection of draught beers.
The Society, BaxterStorey’s in-house grab-and-go offer, offers a selection of fresh paninis, salads and sandwiches. Surplus items are donated to local homeless charity York Road Project.
Morag Warn, operations director at BaxterStorey, added: “We are proud to support Asahi’s sustainability initiatives with our rooftop herb garden and coffee grounds recycling scheme. We are looking forward to bringing our contemporary approach to food, service and technology to refresh the experience for their employees.”
