‘Golden Age’ for Event Catering
Kofler & Kompanie Predicts ‘Golden Age’ for Event Catering
International hospitality brand Kofler & Kompanie is predicting a ‘golden age’ of event hospitality following its recent acquisition of Mustard Catering. The company recognises London as ‘the Silicon Valley of the food scene’ and with its partner brands White Rabbit Fund; (which invests in and supports emerging talent in the restaurant sector) and Pret A Diner (renowned for its temporary food and art installations), Kofler & Kompanie envisages a growth in innovation and quality for the event industry in the years ahead.
“Through our acquisition of Mustard Catering, we’ve created a proposition that combines heritage and innovation, quality and experiment, venue and installation. It’s these combinations that are indicative of where the London hospitality scene is at the moment, and why we’re now looking at a golden age of food for the event industry in the years ahead,” commented KP Kofler, CEO and Founder of Kofler & Kompanie.
“We’re convinced that the future of event services lies in the ability of companies to provide dynamic experiences for their venue partners and clients. Through temporary installations and food innovation, we see real opportunity,” adds Éadaoin McDonagh, Managing Director, Kofler & Kompanie UK. “This is our vision for Mustard Catering. Inspired by the restaurant scene, we’re predicting a real acceleration in food innovation and this will only benefit event organisers.”
Mustard Catering joined the Kofler & Kompanie group of brands in November, and now sits alongside the recently launched White Rabbit Fund, Gourmet Sports and Pret a Diner.
“Mustard Catering are delighted to have become part of the Kofler & Kompanie group, to mutually develop and offer combined expertise across the market,” enthuses Business Development Director James Hurworth of Mustard Catering. The acquisition bought together two companies with a combined heritage of over 55 years, to create a new and innovative proposition for the event industry and professionals.
Kofler & Kompanie also operates two London restaurants and events spaces, The Magazine at Serpentine Sackler Gallery and Farmopolis Café on the Jetty at Greenwich Peninsula. Following the acquisition, Kofler & Kompanie now offers event catering and hospitality to customers in six countries, on three continents with over 400 loyal staff members.
