— to operate risk-assessed food safety procedures,

— to manage costs without compromising quality,

— to procure ingredients in a consistently sustainable way and minimise waste.

The supplier must be able to demonstrate:

— high level of experience in the provision of buffet services in similar environments,

— financial robustness – evidence of this will be checked via a Dun and Bradstreet report,

— Innovation, creativity and flexibility delivering the service throughout,

— a considerable degree of professionalism in line with the image of the Events Centre,

— professional menus for display and marketing purposes branded to HEE’s specification (ie excluding supplier branding),

— a wide range of catering service options, including options for special dietary requirements such as Kosher and Halal,
