Focused on food and non-food procurement, recipe costing and allergen management for the hospitality industry, they are their clients' solutions partner.

Their client portfolio boasts over 260 contracts, representing over 600 hotels, including groups, independent and luxury hotels, brasseries, restaurants, deli concepts, branded high street restaurants, private schools, universities, London Clubs and numerous Michelin-starred hotels and restaurants.

Their success is based on forming lasting relationships with clients, as well as 150+ accredited suppliers who help to ensure they continually supply the highest quality standards of food whilst controlling costs and increasing profits and margin.

The mission at PSL is to increase the margins of every client. They are focused on driving efficiencies through procurement and operations directly resulting in increased profits.
