Contract caterers The Balanced Food Co and Food First are to merge.
Ian Summers at Balanced Food Co and Mark McCann at Food First have agreed to merge their businesses. The new operation will trade as The Balanced Food Co and has been founded "with a balanced approach to good food and nutrition to deliver sustainable lifestyle benefits to its clients and their customers", the company said.
The Balanced Food Co said it would be targeting clients in business and industry and independent education who understand the benefits that nutritious food has on the wellbeing of its employees or pupils.
Mark McCann created Food First in 2017 and operates contracts in London and the South West.
Summers said: "We are excited to be disrupting the foodservice marketplace by offering new concepts which reflect many clients desire to improve wellbeing for their employees."
