Prestigious Catering Limited is a family run business. We are a husband and wife team, supported by our two daughters and a staff of 35, providing first class contract catering in multiple locations within the London Boroughs. We are very “hands-on” and are heavily involved in the day-to-day operation of the business, the standards we strive to achieve can be evidenced in that we still hold our first ever contract, at The Priory Academy in Orpington, which we were awarded in 1992.
Crucial to the success of Prestigious Catering Limited has been our hard working, enthusiastic staff. We recruit locally, promote from within and offer career progression and many staff members have been with Prestigious Catering since its inception. We work as a team, passionate about offering clients healthy, tasty meals and snacks, combined with high standards of personal service. We maintain clear lines of communication to the management team for customers, clients and staff and on a daily basis, one of the management team is on site at every location.
We are all passionate about providing competitively priced, nutritious and tasty food, made from locally sourced ingredients.
In our schools and our cafes we offer a wide range of delicious breakfasts, lunches and afternoon teas. Our eggs are fresh, from a local farm with free-range chickens, meat is locally sourced and Fair Trade coffee beans are freshly ground for each cup of coffee.
In addition to producing healthy food, we are members of The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA). Sustainability is an important part of the ethos of Prestigious Catering Limited, reflected in our working practices. We have been awarded two stars by the association for our work in environmental matters, staff training and pastoral care.
We have been awarded the highest 5 Stars by the Environmental Health Agency for our hygiene and safety compliance.
