London Metropolitan University partners with Gather & Gather

London Metropolitan University is pleased to announce it has awarded a new catering and hospitality contract to Gather & Gather.

The two-year deal, which began on 1st August 2021 and has a value of £1.5million, will see Gather & Gather bring its award-winning approach and innovative menus to multiple outlets across the university’s two campuses on Holloway Road and at Aldgate.

Exciting and nourishing food experiences will support the university culture and its future food strategy as the campus locations evolve. This new academic year, students, employees and visitors alike can look forward to fresh concepts, such as street food vendors through Gather & Gather’s newly formed partnership with Karnivalfood, and a new artisan coffee offer.

The tender process attracted stiff competition across the board and Gather & Gather stood out for its commercial acumen, sustainable practices, innovation, creativity and, of course, its commitment to quality ingredients.

Elizabeth McGowan, Head of Events, Hospitality & Business Services for London Metropolitan University, said: “We look forward to working collaboratively with Gather & Gather to bring our university community exciting food experiences on campus. Providing the nutrition needed to support our learning community, whilst of course being great value for money.”

Rob Fredrickson, Managing Director for Gather & Gather, said: “We’re delighted to be working with London Metropolitan University. It’s fantastic that Elizabeth and the team share our vision and aspirations around the positive impact brilliant food and drink experiences can have on people – bringing them together whatever the occasion or location. We’re introducing fresh and exciting concepts to the two campuses and together we will make a real difference to university life and the community.”
