Established in Angola since 2009, Newrest Angola is one of the most efficient foodservice organizations in Angola. With support of a strong local partner, Newrest Angola has significantly developed its core activities: offshore operations management , onshore catering and Ship supply. A strong local QHSE policy and the fulfilment of international high standards of quality are part of the success of our operations.
From full site services management (catering / housekeeping / laundry) to ship supply, Newrest has the systems in place and the local know how to deploy the most adequate solutions for all related project.
In this context, 2016-17 was a year of consolidation for Newrest Angola and a slight contraction in turnover. Although the Remote site customer portfolio remains stable, certain projects have been stopped. The development in Catering activity is confirmed. The consequence of this is that the distribution in turnover has gone from 100 % from oil activity to a balance between oil and Catering activities (51 % in Catering & Guest House management and 49 % related to the oil industry).
The Angolan subsidiary expanded its activity in B&I by winning new contracts, continuing to apply action plans to reduce costs. This has enabled Newrest Angola to win 6 major contracts with Castel Group and Sodiba in the drinks industry and signed a new contract with Nestlé and Barloworld. These contracts enabled the subsidiary to expand its in uence in the B&I industry and to help achieve its activity diversi cation strategic plan and increase its presence on the local market.
For the coming year, despite a gloomy economic context with the shutting down of several sub-contractors in the oil sector and operational challenges due to fierce competition, Newrest Angola will maintain its ambition of improving the quality perceived by our customers on-site every day. To achieve this, Newrest Angola Management will have the objective of standardising its organisation via ISO 9001:2005 management system quality certification. This certification would enable the subsidiary to improve its quality control, optimise its productivity and develop its reputation in the country.
