Belfast-headquartered foodservice firm Mount Charles has secured a seven-year contract to provide catering services for Ireland-based national public media organisation Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ).

As part of the contract, the catering firm will deliver its food and beverages for 1,822 staff members of RTÉ’s Donnybrook campus. It includes RTÉ’s television and radio studios, and the Fair City set.

The catering firm is spending £100k to offer food concepts such as Real Good Food, Honest and Urban Square Coffee.

Using local ingredients, Real Good Food aims to provide traditional home comfort food in a new way.

Along with providing some comprehensive nutritional information, Honest will serve fresh, non-processed food and juices.

Urban Square Coffee intends to transform the radio coffee shop experience into a destination venue.

The company will employ healthy cooking methods to deliver food for RTÉ.

Mount Charles chairman and founder Trevor Annon said: “We are delighted to announce our most recent contract win. It is the ‘jewel in the crown’ of some heavyweight contracts we have picked up over the last two years and I believe it sends out a strong message to the market.

“Using our extensive knowledge from operating many similar catering solutions, we believe that we have created a strong food offer and brand that is appealing and will meet all of RTE’s staff and customers’ needs. We are confident that the service we can provide to RTÉ will be unrivalled.”
