Tracey set up TAF Catering Consultancy in November 2018 on a mission to offer a catering consultancy with a fresh approach.

Tracey’s view was that every project would (a) offer clients 100% independent pair of eyes, (b) be managed by a safe reassuring collaborative pair of hands and (c) deliver specialist expertise according to the needs of client catering consultancy briefs.

Today, TAF Catering Consultancy appears thriving, with clients seeking forward-thinking consultancy advice. In 2019 alone, TAF has completed workplace catering consultancy projects including:

  1. Three Catering Tenders (for a Top 10 Global Law Firm, Top 50 Global Insurance Firm and One of London’s Most Popular Visitor Attractions)
  2. Catering Consultancy Deign project (for a Top 3 Global Insurance firm)
  3. Feasibility Study (for a multi-tenanted Conference Centre)
  4. Foodservice Market Research Project (for the 13th largest Global Conglomerate)
  5. Audit (for the 3rd Largest Global Business Software Corporation)

Tracey speaks at events, judges at industry awards and has been published in the industry’s press. A hospitality professional with senior management experience and a proven track record, clients say Tracey provides valuable insight as a catering consultant!
