GIG Wins Event Caterer Award

Global infusion Group

 

As Red Carpet prepares to head to Milan for the MTV music awards we hear that Global Infusion Group has picked up an ‘Event Caterer of the Year’ award. It’s a salutary reminder of the importance of the catering operation to high-end global events.  Sat Bal (21 Oct’15)  

Global Infusion Group (GIG) scooped the award at the Foodservice Cateys 2015 where judges praised the company’s “amazing ability to cater at events that are both challenging and diverse in nature.”

These events include Reading and Glastonbury festivals, the latter which GIG has provided artist and crew catering to for 17 years. Sporting events include the London 2012 Olympic Games and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. The award category was sponsored by Electrolux Professional.

Tony Laurenson, founder and CEO of Chesham-based GIG said: “It’s a fantastic tribute to the entire GIG team. This award recognises our sterling efforts over many years to provide outstanding service and great food to all of our customers which has made such a significant contribution to the growth and global expansion of our business.”

Originally launched by Tony Laurenson as Eat to the Beat from his parents’ garage in 1984, the operation  has grown into a global brand with bases around the world employing around 170 staff and providing work for 3,000 contractors.

Through its Eat to the Beat division, GIG supplies services to international film and television companies and caters many of the world’s leading bands and top entertainment stars.

Summer Festivals Fuelled By Eat to the Beat

Is Lady Gaga an avocado fan? Does Chris Martin enjoy a wild mushroom munch? The answers are all in a season’s work for long-time artist caterer Eat to the Beat .

The company’s hectic festival roster starts from now and end in. Eat to the Beat (ETTB) and parent company GIG will be delivering backstage, crew and VIP artist catering at 16 of the UK’s major festivals including Glastonbury at Worthy Farm, Somerset.

ETTB has 19 years of Glastonbury experience and has perfected an operational plan to be executed by a team of 10. The process is being overseen by Mary Shelley-Smith, ETTB’s global operations director. In short, her team will feed crews and artists, including the BBC’s crew and presenters, from the show build phase throughout the festival until site clearance.

 “Glastonbury involves meticulous planning and agility in delivery,” said Mary Shelley-Smith. “We bring our own equipment onto site which includes sinks and hot water provision. A 50-strong team supported by numerous volunteers serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to 950 people each day, but over the main festival days Eat to the Beat will serve over 13,000 meals. “Our team of around 20 chefs will provide a 24-7 service including three course lunches with lots of choice to suit every artist and crew taste we’ve come across!”

Crews from ETTB will be work until at major festivals throughout the summer, ending at Leeds Festival in August. Interim stops include V Festival, Download and the Rewind Festivals.
