The extended partnership will see the chef, who operates 17 restaurants across the globe under The Social Company, work more widely with Compass, specifically with Keith Prowse, a division within Compass Group UK & Ireland's sports, leisure and hospitality business Levy Restaurants UK.
Atherton, who initially worked with Compass's fine dining arm Restaurant Associates, will become more heavily involved in catering at the St George's Suite at the Twickenham Stadium and in other Levy Resturants UK projects.
James Boyle, managing director, Restaurant Associates said: "Jason is a very special talent and the work we have done together over the last five years has been outstanding. Partnering again is a great way to show our clients, customers and our people that we’re dedicated to culinary excellence.”
Atherton, who has been consultant chef for Restaurant Associates since 2010 where he joined to help enhance the organisation's corporate and fine-dining offer, said: "I love working with Restaurant Associates and their talented team to help enhance their commitment to providing the highest quality of dining to clients. I’m looking forward to working with the wider Compass Group in the UK & Ireland and worldwide, as well as Levy Restaurants UK, to help create tailored and innovative food offers that suit their customers, creating menus that are of world class quality.”
