We understand the importance of discreet hospitality when the corporate message and networking opportunities take centre stage. We provide support to organisers by delivering a service where nothing is too much trouble - a last minute printer cable, hairdryer and emergency dietary request handled with no fuss by our on site teams allow our client to get on with making a success of the event.
Menus can be tailored to reinforce the company line or simply to reflect the ethos of the business - we procure ethically, favouring seasonal and sustainable produce. In addition we are a London Living Wage employer and actively recruit in our local community, and we operate responsibly to the waste hierarchy to minimise our footprint in resource terms.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Responsible business as standard
PI take a 21st Century approach to our social responsibility as a London business. We prioritise the well-being and social capital of our team, encouraging personal development and physical and mental health. We prioritise sustainable procurement, working with a range of organisations to ensure that environmental and social well-being are not sacrificed in our supply chain. We minimise our use of resources, actively encouraging good “housekeeping” with regard to utilities, travel and consumable goods. We actively reduce and reuse waste, working to the waste hierarchy in reducing our waste, reusing what we can and recycling what we can’t.
London Living Wage
Paying employees the cost of London living
PI pays the minimum of the London Living Wage to everyone involved in our events. This is not the norm in any industry - yet - but least of all in hospitality. We have a fantastic team of service staff, support staff and junior event professionals who go the extra mile to guarantee the success of our events. The London Living Wage ensures that our team are able to perform to the best of their ability for us - they work one job, they are able to enjoy their leisure and we believe that this shines through in the hospitality they offer.
Surplus & Waste Food
Limiting the waste we produce
Whilst we do our upmost to ensure we don’t over order or prepare excess ingredients, sometimes we do have surplus food. Party Ingredients works with the Plan Zheroes charity to redistribute this surplus from events. The food has gone to a number of local hostels and shelters who have used it to feed those in their care. Any food waste we produce that can't be donated is recycled at our base in South Quay. This waste is then recycled to form compost, energy (using anaerobic digestion), and fertilisers for farms in Kent.
