Leading corporate fine dining and hospitality business wins MOL’s prestigious new £650k London office catering contractMitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) – a major international shipping company - has appointed Lusso to supply workplace and fine dining at their new central London offices.
The appointment came as a result of a three-way tender process that MOL called when moving from its current offices in Royal Mint Court to its new space in Thomas More Square.
Lusso emerged victorious and will initially provide three services: dining at a distinguished new restaurant overlooking an atrium on the building’s 10th floor; hospitality throughout the office; and lastly serving at a small fine dining suite. The contract is expected to be worth £650k over three years.
The London office is one of many MOL destinations globally. MOL is an extensive ocean shipping company with Head Quarters in Tokyo and has a past dating back 130 years. Its fleet includes Tankers, LNG carriers, Car Carriers, Dry bulk vessels, Container ships, and a Cruise ship. It is the world leader in shipping Liquefied Natural Gas - an environmentally friendly clean energy source - and it transports around the world commodities such as iron ore, coal, grain, crude oil, refined petroleum, liquefied chemicals, and even holidaymakers. MOL has more than 10,000 employees and forecasts that annual turnover will exceed ¥1.8 trillion this year (equivalent to more than £11 billion).
Lusso’s managing director Paul Hurren said: “we are humbled and thrilled to be partnering MOL. Another of our clients graciously allowed the MOL board to use one of their sites for their formal board meeting dinner and our team did an amazing job in creating the right ambience and delicious food to help seal the deal!”
