Trenchers and Brexit as well as congestion charge


My alarm went off at a later than normal 3:15am today, and normally that would be great, however, getting up later means we are quieter than usual, Trenchers Catering has been going from strength to strength recently, however, i always have it in mind that things can change at any moment, with the uncertainty surrounding Brexit at the moment coupled with looming congestion  charges about to be implemented in Birmingham over the next few month, all i see is challenges.

Office catering in Birmingham has always had great scope for a company to disrupt the market and at Trenchers we try to be innovative with presentation, and production were possible.

We have some great new packaging about to be introduced which will mean we are better branded and also meaning almost 70% of the packaging we will be using will be able to get recycled after use in companies waste paper baskets.


I don't know of any catering company with there own sustainability policy, and even any catering company that can show a real push towards a greener more sustainable product, all our competitors are using hard plastic platters.


The Congestion charge coming it force will mean Trenchers investing in more new refrigerated delivery vans to ensure we are meeting the required targets for emissions in Birmingham.


Brexit will be the big looming issue and hopefully our government will get there act together and get something sorted so we as a small business can continue to thrive in an ever changing and uncertain environment, as we rely on the success of other businesses in the city.
