Elior UK has won a three-year catering contract at Aberdeen Art Gallery.
The contract caterer will transform the site's food and drink offering under its new specialist concessions arm, Foodsmiths, with a focus on provenance, craft and quality.
The art gallery's main café, balcony and hospitality will be transformed as visitors partake of Elior UK's cakes, pastries, salads, specialty tea and coffee, and hot dishes using seasonal ingredients. There will also be an afternoon tea offering and a craft baker will be on site, baking breads, cakes and scones.
Kenny Finlayson, managing director of Elior UK, said: "The highly anticipated reopening of Aberdeen Art Gallery has created a great deal of excitement and enthusiasm amongst the Elior team.
"We look forward to providing a food service that is in complete synergy with the gallery so that it becomes an important attraction to visitors in its own right. Through our commitment to the key pillars of craft, provenance and quality we will deliver catering that is a key part of the whole enjoyable visitor experience."
