Our approach...

Our portfolio of market-leading concepts has been developed by our Food & Concept Development teams for use across all sectors of our business. Every concept incorporates extensive market trend and consumer insight to ensure our food offer is relevant and competitive; all the way from our award-winning Education concept, The Eativerse, to our cuisine-centric concepts like The Roti Movement, to our CSR-focused concepts like Trashed. We also deliver bespoke concepts for our sites and collaborate with leading food-influencers and chefs within our brand partner network to offer truly unique and authentic culinary experiences to our customers.

Concept development

Our concept development team develop bespoke, in house, concepts to incorporate the latest food from the high street and nutrition trends.


Concepts include our new further education brand ‘Society Street Kitchen’ which brings the best of British street food to our further education colleges, our award-winning brand ‘Trashed’, which focuses on using food items that would otherwise be wasted - this took home a Footprint Award and was shortlisted for the Waste2Zero Awards.


We work with leading food influencers and chefs on collaborations from high street brands to fine dining.

Food and nutrition

Our award-winning food team are constantly innovating to ensure our offers across all sectors are market-leading on the national and international stage. Food is the centre of our business, so we always use sustainable sourced ingredients, high in nutritional value wherever possible.


Working closely with the food team, Charlotte Wright, our director of CSR and Wellness and her team ensure our health and wellbeing commitments are embedded into our menus, from low sugar menus in education to vegan menus in across our business and industry sector.
