Compass puts head of culinary on the menu

Compass Group UK and Ireland’s healthcare division has appointed Bruce Toon as its new head of culinary. He will be tasked with creating nutritious and tasty meals for the people it serves at NHS hospital contracts, private healthcare, retail and care homes across the UK.

Toon has almost 30 years’ experience across the food and hospitality sector, having worked in industries including workplace, education and retail catering, and most recently running his own consultancy. This appointment sees him return to Compass, having previously worked for the organisation for 26 years from 1984.

Steve Cenci, MD of Compass Group UK and Ireland healthcare, said: “Bruce brings a wealth of experience and significant culinary kudos to our team. He will truly reinforce our position in creating meals that the people we serve want to eat, leading the way by delivering innovative, tasty and healthy food based on research and feedback.”

Toon added: “At a time when food and diet is being highlighted as playing a vital role in people’s health and wellbeing, I am delighted to be taking on this critical role. I look forward to further developing our meals and menus for the clients, patients, visitors and staff that we serve every day.”
