Compass Group Australia has been awarded a major contract to provide hospitality and catering services at Australian Defence locations in New South Wales and Queensland as part of the Defence Support and Reform Group’s Base Services Retendering project.

This project sees Compass Group continue its 25-year partnership with Australian Defence as it grasps the opportunity to deliver efficiencies while ensuring Defence personnel receive a consistently high level of service.

Services will be delivered by ESS Support Services Worldwide (ESS), Compass Group’s dedicated provider to the Defence, Offshore and Remote sector. ESS will deliver catering, bar and function services, mess management and cafeteria services in Defence locations in Southern NSW, Northern NSW and Queensland. 

Compass Group Australia Managing Director Mark van Dyck said that Compass Group was eager to continue its relationship with Australian Defence.

“Compass Group has been providing a range of support services to Australian Defence for many years and we are excited by the opportunity to continue our relationship with the Defence community by being awarded this contract,” said Mr van Dyck.

“Services will be delivered by our market-leading ESS team who have extensive experience in providing hospitality and catering services in Defence locations in Australia and around the world.”

Compass Group also provides facilities management services to Australian Defence’s Single LEAP Project in locations throughout Australia via its dedicated FM provider DeltaFM.
