Catering and facilities management company Mount Charles has secured a new contract with the Department of Health, based in Miesian Plaza on Baggot Street, Dublin.

The contract sees the outsourcing giant provide catering services to all occupants situated over the building’s seven floors, including the Department of Health, Department of Children and Youth Affairs, Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Department of Finance.

Mount Charles will deliver a premium, healthy, local fresh food offer, in line with current trends, under their bespoke Urban Square brand. Working from a state-of-the art preparation kitchen, Urban Square will serve the best seasonal ingredients, locally sourced and prepared freshly by a skilled culinary team.

This will be supplemented by a barista coffee bar, Urban Coffee Co and an Honest salad bar. The made-to-order, healthy eating brand will offer fresh, non-processed, food with comprehensive, transparent nutritional information available with every meal.

“We are delighted to add the Department of Health, to our portfolio of high-profile Dublin clients and look forward to providing the Department of Health with our signature professional service,” said Terry Woods, commercial director at Mount Charles Ireland.

“All our food will be prepared fresh on site from locally sourced ingredients and our bespoke, innovative menus are developed by our Culinary Development Team, led by Darren Curran. The menus developed exclusively for Miesian Plaza, will enable staff to quickly grab a healthy snack, or a more substantial breakfast or lunch.

“We champion provenance and local suppliers, ensuring that customers know their food journey. We don’t have to look far for the best ingredients and the quality and freshness of our food starts with our unequivocal commitment to support local Irish suppliers.”

In the last two years, the 2020 Deloitte Best Managed Company has secured contracts worth a combined €40m with the Department of Transport Tourism & Sport, Irish Blood and Transfusion Service, Ordinance Survey Ireland, the Abbey Theatre, the National Aquatic Centre, Custom House, Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government, Griffith College, Maynooth College and RTE.

Mount Charles’ new contract with the Department of Health commenced on November 2.
