With the expertise of its sector teams to draw from, Sodexo remains one of the most ubiquitous caterers in the UK market.

From corporate catering in staff restaurants to fine dining at world-class sporting events, the company boasts a highly talented chef pool that always puts quality and creativity at the heart of its work. 

Many of those in the kitchen will have grown through the ranks under the tutelage of the highly-respected David Mulcahy.

He is responsible for the culinary development of some 2,500 chefs working across the UK and Ireland in workplaces, schools, universities, army barracks and corporate hospitality, and a leading ambassador for bringing through the next generation of cooks into the industry.

“I have long been motivated by supporting and developing others, particularly young chef talent of which there is so much across the UK and Ireland,” he says.

As well as people development, David oversees the direction of Sodexo’s UK menus.

Such is the reverence he is afforded in the market that he was awarded the Freedom of the City of London this year, which to give it due context is an honour that has also been bestowed upon such individuals as Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Dame Judi Dench and Florence Nightingale.
