The foodservice industry is broadly segmented into two categories: self operated and contract catering. Both types of foodservice providers are responsible for supply of food and beverage services and a broad range of other services to their clients in a number of end markets. Contract catering principally operates in the outsourcing structure by a firm or by a specialized company on a contractual base. Major organizations face increasing cost pressures and look for cost-effective alternatives to self-administer food and support services thus demanding for contract catering. The contract caterers have a clearly predefined clientele, such as civil servants, workers, patients, who will have access to canteen and deliver meals at a social price.

Based on amount of financial risks that contract catering company bears and potential compensation, profit or loss that it receives, the contract catering foodservice contracts usually fall in one of the three types of contracts: Fee-based/Cost Plus, Profit & Loss, and Fixed Price. The contract caterers offer a number of benefits to their clients such as contract caterers can deliver more consistent, flexible and better products, and clients do not have to worry about rising health and safety regulatory regime.
