To welcome employees from local businesses back to the office, we hosted a food festival fundraising event, taking over Cambridge Business Park, to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice.
Upto 4000 employees enjoyed a street food fiesta including pulled barbacoa chicken with Mexican-spiced rub and pineapple salsa, Virgin Mary juice shots and Oishi Don donburi bowls with steak or aubergine, steamed rice and chuku-fu salad.
Visitors tucked into tasters from Cambridge’s local suppliers such as Posh Pops, Glebe Farm and Wesley Artisan’s pepperoni, red onion and rocket sourdough pizzas.
We welcomed local suppliers to showcase the very best of Cambridgeshire produce, including the Cambridge Juice company, Kale and Damson, Saffron Ice Creams, and the Real Pie Company, dishing out their famous Cambridgeshire sausage rolls.
Attendees included Cambridge-based businesses and park clients, including Samsung, Judge Business School, Illumina, Math Works, Smarsh and Price Bailey.
Peter Kent, Regional Managing Director, said: “This was an excellent chance for us to leave the pandemic behind and come together again as a community. We’re delighted to support such an important local cause, and our chefs loved creating some fun and vibrant street food, which celebrates the best in seasonal, local produce, for customers here today.
We’ve been joined by some fantastic local suppliers from Cambridge Juice to Kale and Damson, giving us a great opportunity to showcase the exciting food trends you see on the high-street and bring it right to the heart of the workplace catering experience”.
Tracy Thomas, Business Park Manager added: “BaxterStorey put on a fantastic event, and we couldn’t have asked for more. It was above and beyond our expectations and we have had some wonderful comments from the park occupiers”.
