CH&Co Group Joins Forces with Mark Sargeant
C
H&Co Group has announced
an exciting new partnership
with well-known chef and
restaurateur, Mark Sargeant.
The collaboration upholds the contract
caterer’s commitment to ongoing food
innovation and the development and
motivation of its chefs and teams.
Mark will support CH&Co Group across
its portfolio of businesses, which operate
in the business & industry, heritage,
leisure, education and healthcare
sectors. Key areas and initiatives that
he will lend his expertise and industry
knowledge
to
include:
menu
development; chef training in the CH&Co
Group Chef Academy; culinary
communications; team engagement and
motivation
through
internal
communication and events.
As a champion of nurturing talent, Mark
will also be offering CH&Co Group chefs
the opportunity to complete stages at his
various establishments, including his
flagship Folkestone restaurant, Rocksalt.
Bill Toner, CH&Co Group’s Chief
Executive, said: “We’re very excited
about our partnership with Mark. Food
is what we’re all about and we’re always
looking for ways to mix things up and do
great food a little differently. Mark is
undeniably an incredibly talented chef
who is enjoying a remarkable career. His
experience, vision and style is a fantastic
fit for the business. He will work well with
our chefs at all levels, inspiring them to
innovate and build on the excellent food
they are already serving to our clients,
and also to develop their careers. The
great thing is that everyone wins from
this partnership, from our chefs and
teams through to our clients.”
Mark Sargeant added: “I’m really looking forward to working with CH&Co
Group. It’s a dynamic and growing business, which makes it a very interesting
prospect. The thing that excites me
most is how many different businesses
there are in the group, all with their own
challenges. I’ve always been a fan of
diversity and this will make for lots of
interesting work and keep me on my
toes. Developing talent is something I’m
passionate about, but I’m sure it won’t
be a one-way street and that I’ll learn
plenty from the teams too.”

Spanning the Years
T
he Queensferry Crossing, near
Edinburgh, attracted global
attention when it opened
recently. With its impressive span of
1.7 miles (2.7km), this is the longest
bridge of its type in the world. Many
clever engineering techniques were
employed during its construction and
this structure will overcome many of
the issues that beset its predecessor,
such as being able to cope during
high winds.
This isn’t the type of project you would
immediately associate with Grundfos
Pumps, however behind the scenes and
keeping the bridge operational at all times
is a Hydro MPC-E a Grundfos variable
speed 3-pump booster set that will ensure
that any and all roadway surface
washdown requirements can be dealt with
quickly and effectively.
Coming in at a cost of £1.35bn, the bridge
is expected to carry 24 million vehicles a
year and was formally opened by Queen
Elizabeth exactly 53 years after she
performed the same ceremony for its
predecessor the Forth Road Bridge that
will continue to be used for buses,
bicycles and pedestrians.
With an
expected lifespan of at least 120 years,
the new crossing will be an intrinsic part
of the landscape for many years to come
and Grundfos will be there providing it
with the boost it will need to keep the
traffic flowing.
