Company Profile

Mestizo Catering Consultancy was launched in August 2005 from identifying a market niche to provide truly affordable support services to small independent catering businesses. Formed by its Director, Dave Westwood, Mestizo has expanded, developed and evolved whilst still maintaining a distinct focus within the catering sector.

Our Social and Environmental Activities

Part of Mestizo`s promise is to educate the market, not just in terms of ethical products and services but also ethical standards, business related environmental issues and ethical business practices.

This is something that has set Mestizo apart from the present paradigm and is the foundation of the business; we were all brought together by this foundation and through our individual experiences and a collective understanding that there was something disastrously wrong with the present "business model" and the practices therein; here is a little example of what we are doing to change attitudes:-

# Mestizo provides "truly affordable" ethically focused consultation and business support services to start-up & SME catering businesses.

# We are promoting our "ethical business model", and have now rolled this out in many businesses with truly great results, this model has benefitted the economy, the business, the employees and the wider communities.

# We work with numerous more ethically focused energy providers to offer cleaner, cheaper alternatives to your current providers, this not only brings down those bills but contributes to a cleaner, safer environment for future generations.

# We are helping employers understand that the "most important" assets they have are their staff; No staff, No business!

# We pay, campaign for and promote the payment of a "real living wage" that "truly" meets the cost of living in 2018 and beyond.

# We pay our Male and Female staff EXACTLY the same rates and bonuses.

# We have BANNED and NEVER utilised "Zero Hour Contracts" at Mestizo Catering Consultancy.

# Our staff are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve, as highly qualified, highly experienced dedicated people, without them this business would not exist.

# We campaign against and expose "Employer Apprenticeship Fraud".

# We create environmental awareness and protections for future generations.

# We have "ZERO" staff turnover.

# We will continue to campaign against VAT disparity and "stealth taxes" for a fairer deal for small catering business owners.

# We "see" the direct relationship between pay, productivity, the working environment and the health and wellbeing of our members.

# We have an "acute" awareness of the needs of the environment and incorporate this awareness in to our business decisions.

# Only promote or endorse "ethically run" traders and businesses.

#Always set the standard as True "Investors In People
