The Energy, Government and Infrastructure sector of ESS, which is part of Compass Group UK and Ireland, has secured a five-year catering contract from Bedfordshire Police.

Under the contract, ESS will be responsible for providing catering and hospitality services to sites located in Bedford and Luton.

Customers across the two locations will have round-the-clock access to food, snacks as well as hot and cold drinks.

ESS Energy Government and Infrastructure managing director Ronnie Kelman said: “We’re delighted to be working with Bedfordshire Police to feed their officers and staff.

“We’ve introduced exciting new food concepts for customers at the Bedford and Luton sites, supported by micro-markets to meet the 24/7 demand.

“This is another fantastic addition to our police business and we’re continuing to enhance our restaurant and operational feeding offers to deliver great experiences to our police customers.”

Bedfordshire Police has awarded the contract to ESS based on its partnerships with the City of London Police, Kent Police, the Metropolitan Police Training Centre, Surrey Police, Sussex Police and Thames Valley Police.

Bedfordshire Police Estates and Facilities head Lorraine Chown said: “Reintroducing onsite catering services has without exaggeration transformed the feel of our sites and put the heart back into them.

“The ESS staff could not be more friendly or more helpful, with the food and drink offerings of great quality at affordable prices.

“Our staff and officers have especially welcomed the micro-markets, allowing them access to coffee and food whenever they need it. This has been a positive step for the Force, reinforcing our commitment to staff health and wellbeing, and ESS have excelled so far in helping us achieve this.”

Last month, ESS Defence, Marine and Aerospace received a contract to provide catering services to Army training facilities across the UK.
