Compass Ireland partners with Irish Village Markets to supply fresh food to workplaces

Partnership promises to supply fresh food and tastier lunch options directly to workers

Contract caterer Compass Ireland has teamed up food market operator Irish Village Markets (IVM) to supply fresh food and tastier lunch options directly to workplaces.

The partnership means employees returning to work can enjoy a wider range of food options served on-site by IVM vendors.

“The launch of Irish Village Markets at Compass Ireland client sites will give employers a new way to reward and re-energise employees as they return to workplaces,” Deirdre O’Neill, managing director of Compass Group Ireland, said.

“It will also allow us to support local, independent food suppliers and give them a much-needed boost and a unique platform to reach new customers,” she said.


Since its launch in 2005, IVM has become one of the best-known food market operators in the country, expanding to 12 locations in Dublin, including Mespil Road, Spencer Dock, The Grand Canal and Sandyford Industrial Estate.

IVM specialises in healthy, nutritious, and diverse street food and has close working relationships with over 35 vendors serving a wide range of multicultural cuisines ranging from Spanish, Mexican and Lebanese, to Korean, Brazilian, and Hawaiian.

"Our partnership with Compass Group Ireland presents a very exciting opportunity to expand and bring our special brand of street food goodness to more people," Tara Dalton, co-founder and owner of Irish Village Markets, said.

In addition to the IVM partnership, Compass Ireland has introduced the Feedr cloud canteen and launched its centralised Copper Pan Kitchen, allowing employees to order healthy meals online for delivery every day to wherever they’re working.
