Aramark and Jamie Oliver have today announced a new 10 year partnership which will see the two companies work together on an exclusive basis to enhance food concepts and delivery across workplaces in Northern Europe, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.
  
The partnership with Jamie Oliver will enable Aramark to introduce social dining experiences to client sites, as well as to develop exclusive concepts for Aramark clients. The two companies will also work together to positively impact the way food services are delivered encouraging a nutritional revolution across the UK and Ireland by focusing on innovative culinary developments, exceptional staff training and enhancing client wellbeing and productivity through nutrition and food.
  
Established in 2008, Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group operates premium brands in the restaurant sector including Jamie’s Deli, Jamie Oliver’s Diner, Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria and Jamie’s Italian. It is hoped the new partnership will help the brand expand its presence further with dining concepts in Aramark managed retail and office environments.
  
Spreaking this week, Aramark’s President in Northern Europe, Frank Gleeson said, "We are passionate about the health and well-being of those we serve every day so it was a natural fit for us to partner with Jamie Oliver. Together, we have an opportunity to create innovative culinary experiences that will revolutionise productivity and health in workplaces throughout Northern Europe. We serve hundreds of thousands of people in workplaces, schools and colleges every day, so we have a fantastic opportunity of working together where we can set the agenda for health and nutrition and have a real and lasting impact on people’s lives."   
  
CEO of Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group, Jon Knight added, "Our partnership with Aramark gives us an opportunity to expand our presence geographically in Northern Europe including the United Kingdom and Ireland where we already operate. Aramark’s mission of enriching and nourishing lives resonated with us, reflecting our own values.  We have seen how that mission is given life throughout the company every day and in particular how Aramark extends this beyond providing a consistently high quality food offering but in introducing wellbeing programmes in client sites. We look forward to working with Aramark and exploring opportunities to establish fully branded retail restaurants in multi-tenanted office and retail environments managed by Aramark."
