Aramark will also be able to introduce social dining experiences to client sites, as well as to develop exclusive concepts for Aramark clients.
Jamie Oliver’s Deli serves healthy and balanced meals made from sustainably sourced ingredients, such as signature Jamie sandwiches, soups, DIY porridge and salad bars, hand-stretched pizzas and grab-in-go options.
