Our business first entered the New Zealand market in 1987.

We have provided food services and support services to our clients in New Zealand for more than 30 years through our brands Eurest, Restaurant Associates, Medirest, ESS and Chartwells. Through these dedicated, specialist sector brands, we operate in key market sectors including business and industry, healthcare, education, defence, offshore and remote.
We provide people with their daily espresso; serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to students in schools and universities, residents in aged care homes and patients and staff within hospital environments; cater for boardroom lunches and workplace cafes and provide visitors with meals at venues and events.
We also clean, provide security and routine maintenance, and run reception and laundry services for our clients.
Our objective is to deliver value to our customers by leveraging the benefits of being a group to deliver structured and sustainable organic growth and achieve our vision to be a world-class provider of food and support services.
We love what we do, providing great food and support services to millions of people around the world, every day. Food is our core competence and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide clients with a wide range of innovative dining solutions. Corporate Responsibility is a cornerstone of our commitment to provide the highest quality service to our customers.
You’ll find us serving customers in offices and factories, schools and universities, hospitals and senior living communities and major sports and cultural venues. We do it all. Tasty, healthy food that brings people together and makes them smile, and world-class security, hospitality, building maintenance, cleaning and procurement services that make everyone’s day just that little bit brighter.
Compass is people-powered. Our business is the success it is today thanks to the hard work and dedication of our motivated and engaged colleagues. Our focus on helping people to build careers, and our inclusive and fair work environments that respect human rights, attract and retain top talent.
