ESS wins Defence Contractor for 2020

Congratulations to our ESS Defence team on beating eight other defence contractors to be awarded Defence Contractor of the Year for 2020. 

ESS awarded Defence Award

In May, the Base Service Contractor Council meeting for 2021 was held at Townsville RAAF base. The ESS Defence team had the pleasure of catering the high-profile event and went above and beyond to showcase the outstanding service that Compass Group provides. 

Compass Group’s National Executive Chef Leo Gstrein was leading the wonderful collaboration of Chefs working together, including Defence Executive Chef Roulan Habi from Canberra, along with the Townsville Head Chefs Alison Jeffs and Rory Harris and Chef Varun Vaidia.

Our chefs are passionate about plant-based foods, zero wastage as well as natural native ingredients. This was showcased throughout each service, as well as at the native tasting table where the guests sampled meal worms, ants, Finger lime, Riberry and Heart Leaf Ice Plant, just to name a few.

We are so proud of our ESS Defence team across Australia for being awarded Defence Contractor of the Year for 2020.
