Contract caterer Vacherin has won five contracts worth £19 million in London to supply food and hospitality services. 


Four of the deals have been awarded by law firms including Ashurst, and Harbottle & Lewis. This brings Vacherin’s number of legal clients to nine.


At Ashurst, the caterer will supply its staff restaurant, coffee bar, client hospitality suite, events and conferences at the legal firm’s new office in Spitalfields. Vacherin will be instrumental in supporting Ashurst’s programme of social and wellbeing activities and events.


Harbottle & Lewis has appointed Vacherin to provide high-quality staff dining and hospitality at its new location on The Strand. Vacherin will also cater for partners’ dinners and staff and client celebratory events – all of which were previously held at external venues.


Vacherin has also been appointed by a firm of specialists in high-stakes litigation and complex transactions employing about 700 staff. The firm chose Vacherin to provide all catering services in a refurbished space at its London head office. The location brings together a hospitality and event suite, staff restaurant and client and staff coffee lounge on one floor.


Most recently, the Vacherin team has been appointed by another law firm to take over from the incumbent caterer to deliver staff dining and a full range of daytime and evening hospitality services. A relocation is planned in the spring, so Vacherin will continue to support the firm in its new head office with a new staff dining offer that focuses on healthy, all-day dining, pop-ups and the increased use of technology for improved communication and convenience.


Vacherin has also won a contract to provide a coffee bar and staff restaurant for a well-known fashion retailer. Serving a busy all-day coffee bar and a staff restaurant, the Vacherin team has created an offer to appeal to a wide demographic, with “creative touches that reflect the nature of the retailer’s business”.


Phil Roker, owner/managing director of Vacherin, said: “These wins further cement our standing in the London market.”
