OUR ABSOLUTE TASTE STORY

Part of OEM Transparent

Since its very beginning, Absolute Taste has provided fabulous food and great service. Absolute Taste operates all over the world with an amazing list of high profile clients. This diverse set of businesses now works across a wide variety of areas, these include: outside catering and event design; private aviation; world renowned sporting events within motorsport, sailing, tennis, golf, cricket and rugby; restaurants and cafés; and high end fixed venues.

During December 2016 Absolute Taste was acquired by One Event Management. As a collective of leading brands within their fields, One Event Management already cover a broad spectrum of hospitality, food and service delivery environments with one guiding principle at their heart; to provide beautiful food and service, to pinnacle brands and clients. Joining forces with One Event Management places Absolute Taste with a like-minded organisation focused on delivering the very best, forming one of the most compelling, exciting and aspirational new food service brands in the food industry today.

The move saw One Event Management’s existing premium catering brand , Mecco, and Absolute Taste re-brand to form Europe’s foremost luxury event design company.  Together the two industry recognised names have assumed the identity of Absolute Taste and continue the commitment of retaining their amazing people and core values, centred on market leading quality and attention to detail.

Arguably this has established one of the most exciting companies within the hospitality industry for many years and in an ever more challenging, competitive and creative environment it expands the support and capability of Absolute Taste, enabling them to compete and deliver like never before.

The Absolute Taste brand has long been synonymous with delivering high quality service and attention to detail, with food at its heart. Co-founder Lyndy Redding remains at the forefront of Absolute Taste’s success. Passionate and dedicated to food, service and her fabulous staff, Lyndy has built an organisation that continues to retain its core values. Formed in 1997 by Lyndy and Ron Dennis of McLaren, Absolute Taste developed from providing the global hospitality for the McLaren Formula 1 Team to being one of the leading catering and event design companies. As a result of this continued success Absolute Taste now operates globally, working within more than 25 countries each year.

Under the new ownership of One Event Management, Absolute Taste plans to continue developing their business, leading the way with their food and creativity in all areas they work, whilst focusing on close working relationships with all of its clients.
