Catering and support services provider Chartwells has secured a new seven-year contract with Middlesex University, beginning this autumn.
Chartwells has been in partnership with the university for 25 years and the renewed contract will "significantly enhance" the catering offer over the next seven years.
This includes evolving the food offers on campus to meet the increasingly diverse needs of students - including the growing requirement for vegan and vegetarian choices - as well as the introduction of new industry leading payment and pre-ordering systems to reduce queues and improve the overall customer journey and experience.
Richard Taylor, managing director, Chartwells, said: "We are confident that our new catering offer will provide a positive change to our on-campus catering. One of the university's core strategic aims is to create a vibrant student experience that promotes wellbeing and builds a sense of belonging and commitment.
"We are looking to achieve this with the creation of welcoming spaces and an engagement plan focused on collaborating with students - including chef demonstrations and supplier sampling throughout the year. We also recognise the need to remain flexible, to adapt with changing consumer, environmental and sustainable needs. I am looking forward to seeing the impact our new catering vision will have on campus."
