Venues, Attractions and Stadia

Elior offers a portfolio of services that bring innovation and greater value to the owners and operators of visitor attractions, venues and events, and stadia. We call this portfolio, Foodsmiths.


Foodsmiths brings together all Elior businesses specialising in catering and hospitality at visitor attractions and venues, special events and stadia. It’s not a name always seen by customers, with the exception of our Foodsmith branded cafes and restaurants. On most sites, the branding and colourways are bespoke to reflect the unique identity, ethos and history of each location.

The Foodsmiths portfolio unites all our teams working in this important market to maximise the sharing of best practice and new ideas. So that we can offer the best, most imaginative food services. Services that help clients to enhance their customer experience.

At the heart of the Foodsmiths portfolio is our commitment to handcrafted, delicious, healthy, innovative food, presented and served with flair and outstanding professionalism. And continually developed to be completely in tune with what people now love and care about in food.
