Event caterer Absolute Taste has teamed up with fruit and vegetable supplier The Premier Group to launch The Menu Partners, a food sourcing procurement and distribution partner to hotels, pubs and restaurants across the UK.
The venture comes after the two companies created a range of ready meals for supermarket chain earlier this year and, alongside a number of partners, launched Salute The NHS, a charity committed to delivering one million meals to NHS works on the Covid-19 frontline.
“The Menu Partners has been an idea we have been contemplating for the last year and, with the current situation we find ourselves in, we feel this is the perfect time to look at the future of foodservice,” says Nigel Harris, owner of Absolute Taste. “Chefs don’t have time to manage a huge number of suppliers and The Menu Partners takes that away from them, providing them with a consolidated solution and a streamlined ordering process.”
The Menu Partners will work out of The Shed in Bicester, New Covent Garden Market and Brighton.
