For BDO Northern Ireland, client meetings are an important part of business life. An average day can include discrete breakfast and lunch meetings with visitors from across the world, as well as large public events with local clients.
Quality and reliable catering is an essential part of making sure these meetings run smoothly. Laura Jackson, a partner with the firm, opted to try Loaf Catering after seeing a friend recommend it on LinkedIn.
“Our Belfast teams regularly host regional businesses and global clients of all sizes. People want to sample authentic local food and Loaf Catering bring a great variety of high quality catering. When we tell people the story behind the food and explain that Loaf is a social enterprise supporting people with learning difficulties and autism, it is a real conversation starter.
“At BDO Northern Ireland, we take our social responsibilities seriously and seek to work with social enterprises that share our commitment to high standards. Loaf’s professional approach and fresh packaging designs fit in well with our brand. With Loaf, it is a great cause that produces great quality food for any occasion. I would recommend that other businesses try Loaf Catering.”
