For the past three years Tapenade has been catering for all 5000 VIP hospitality clients, in chalets hosted by 20 organisations including Rolls Royce; UTC Aerospace; Boeing; Marshalls; QinetiQ; Airbus Group and Saab. This year Tapenade is also catering for the Red Arrows team who will be attending the event and celebrating their 50th year.

Tapenade works closely with main client, The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, and it is the Trust that has agreed the five year deal to continue supplying the catering for all VIP hospitality clients. The contract will also include RIAT’s 100th anniversary year – 2018.
