In Switzerland, Newrest has formed an alliance with a local company of international reputation: Canonica.
Canonica, which is also famous for its chocolate-making expertise, has been providing catering services for many years. Since 2010, the joint venture has been delivering on-board and inflight services to the corporate aviation and group catering sectors.
Since 2011, a daughter joint venture has been created to provide food and services to contract catering businesses and retails outlets.
Newrest Restauration in Switzerland develop its Catering activities with the Inter-Company Restaurant MIC (Marly Innovation Center) located in the canton of Fribourg which places the emphasis on fresh and creative cooking. This restaurant, which is open to the public, will also act as a central kitchen for our catering and delivery services in this canton.
With the Renens school Catering site in the canton of Vaud, the Swiss teams have completely reviewed the food offer to expand the product ranges and give students back choice in how they consume. Pride of place will be given to digital in 2018 with the integration of the range of tools deployed by the Group (APP, click and collect, etc.), to maximise the customer experience and optimise sales.
Finally, the signature of the catering services contract for the ‘Foyer Rose d’automne’ retirement home enables Newrest Switzerland to serve its first establishment in the medical and social segment. Located in the canton of Fribourg, it will be supplied by the MIC production centre.
Newrest Switzerland maintains its ‘Fourchette Verte’ (3 units) and GRT (Genève Région Terre Avenir) certifications for 2 units.
The Switzerland teams want to certify all the Catering sites under GRTA specifications (guarantee mark created in 2004 by the State of Geneva which highlights local produce).
