Aramark Logo

Substainable management is an important topic for the Messe Essen. Thus, together with its partner Aramark, the company sets an example in event and trade fair management. Aramark has provided culinary services to the Messe Essen since 1999, guaranteeing a comprehensive and modern gastronomy concept in restaurants, at snack points, coffee points and inside the VIP fair lounge, both at conventions and on fair days.

All the while, Aramark places great emphasis on sustainability by permanently using regional and fair-trade foods such as biologically sourced beef and spices or MSC-certified fish from sustainable fishing. Professional recycling is also in important topic. In terms of taste, the whole world is at home at Aramark, therefore food trends like streetfood or Peruvian cuisine are taken up regularly and implemented successfully.
