Reacting to the announcement, Compass Group Ireland Marketing Manager Maeve Clancy said:

Compass Group is proud to announce that we have achieved All-Star Most Innovative Foodservice Provider 2022 Accreditation. This wonderful achievement recognises our contribution to quality and standards in the catering industry and we couldn’t be prouder. This is our second Business All-Star Accreditation which underlines our dedication to the continuous improvement and development of our service. Finally, Compass Group would like to thank our clients for supporting us.

Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Compass Group Ireland has achieved All-Star Most Innovative Foodservice Provider 2022 Accreditation. The Accreditation is in recognition of Compass Group’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in the foodservice provision sector. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Compass Group’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. Compass Group Ireland is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for the second consecutive year.”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national Accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for Accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
