With a kitchen boasting over 650 industry awards, it’s fair to say the Amadeus catering team know what’s required to deliver daring menus for every dietary requirement and budget imaginable.
We’re part of the NEC Group and we work with venues and event organisers who want to provide visitors with a unique and memorable food experience. Consideration and innovation is evident on every plate. Whether that’s sustainably sourcing local produce, scrutinising nutritional values or adding a little live theatre to table service.
Our customer portfolio includes serving four million visitors per year at five world-class NEC Group venues as well as top external events, including six major international sporting tournaments, and venues, including Cadbury World, Belfast Castle and Stratford Racecourse. We also operate three Starbucks franchise outlets in addition to managing outlets for retail partners from Subway to JD Wetherspoon.

the amadeus way
Whether working front or back of house, everyone at Amadeus is driven by the brand vision: to make a difference to customers’ experiences across our venues. The Amadeus team like to be adventurous. Seeing challenges as opportunities, they’re open to new thinking and inspiration.
GREAT QUALITY SUPPLIERS
Wherever possible, we use local suppliers. We’re proud of our food miles – approximately 80% of our suppliers are located within a 30-mile radius of the catering base. Where seasons allow, we aim to showcase British produce. The team work with trusted suppliers to ensure great quality and the freshest ingredients.
We’re on track to reach our target of training 200 apprentices by 2020. Our world-class chefs provide coaching the whole way through the programme and inspire apprentices to aim for the very highest standards.
