Food with Passion

Company News, Catering

A family-run facilities management firm in Bristol is changing perceptions surrounding food and sustainability following the launch of a new division.

A Bristol headquartered total facilities management (TFM) company is celebrating the creation of a new business division. 

Family run Almeda Facilities Ltd has launched Food with Passion (FWP) – a new concept that's set to lead the way in changing perceptions surrounding food and sustainability. 

The first-of-its-kind service to be offered by a FM company, FWP will focus on positive change by valuing local, organic, nutritious and ethically sourced produce above everything else - and aims to become the United Kingdom's leading authority on food-based health and wellbeing.

Its vision is to deliver ethical health and wellbeing, ensuring that the general population make better food choices and are ultimately happier and healthier. 

Food with Passion is in the ‘feel good business’ and looks to enable spaces, places and people to be well, healthy and sustainable, offering individuals a new and happy lease of life. 

It also gives organisations the opportunity to re-invigorate their on-site staff restaurants and food areas. 

International building materials company Hanson UK has already engaged Almeda to completely renovate its in-house restaurant, with the family-run firm not just building the space but also providing and cooking the food.

As part of the process, Almeda surveyed staff on the types of food they wanted and created a menu around this which is rich in vitamins, minerals and iron.

Gordon Cox, who has been brought in to head up Food with Passion, comments: “What we’ve launched isn’t just another catering division that has been bolted on to a facilities management offering. FWP is simply about the desire to do the right thing.

“It takes the collaborative efforts of many who share a conviction to change an industry through educated and heartfelt decisions that bring about meaningful transformation. It’s about being ethical, sustainable and responsible, supporting local food suppliers and minimising our impact on the planet.”

Brady George, who is MD at Almeda, comments: “Food with Passion expands beyond the remit of the foodservice and catering market. It is a platform for good where people and the planet are at the heart of everything that it does. Local, ethical and sustainable food is not always the easy option, but it is the correct option, and we have a responsibility to our children and our planet.

“We want to lead the way in this sector, creating a revolution that supports organic and ethical practices while tasting absolutely delicious and inspiring imagination. It’s about proving that doing the right thing doesn’t have to impinge a businesses’ growth and is, as a matter of fact, of immense benefit to everyone in the long-term.”
