ESS Celebrates Local Suppliers at Christmas Market

14 December 2023

The Energy, Government & Infrastructure sector of ESS, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, kicked off the festive season with a German Christmas Market delivered in collaboration with its specialist Scottish suppliers.

The ESS team worked with key client Ithaca Energy (UK) Ltd to host the event for colleagues based at the Ithaca head office in Aberdeen, calling on its established partners to support. ESS suppliers set up stalls in the reception area and chatted to customers about their produce. Customers were able to buy products to eat immediately or take away to enjoy at a later date.

ESS suppliers in attendance at the event included:

Guests and suppliers gave great feedback on the event as a brilliant way to start the Christmas month!

Jenna Urquhart from Amity Fish Company Ltd, commented:

“We had a great day at the German Christmas Market – the festive tunes were on, the decorations were up and the people were jolly! Thanks must go to ESS for championing small businesses, supporting local producers and providing us with these platforms and opportunities. It was an added bonus to spend time with fellow ESS suppliers including JG Ross Bakers and Angus & Oink!”

Ronnie Kelman, Managing Director – ESS Energy, Government & Infrastructure, added:

“We really enjoyed supporting Ithaca with delivering this festive market. I’d like to thank our brilliant local supply partners who gave up their time and presented their products so enthusiastically, and the Ithaca and ESS teams for working together to organise a great event. There was so much fantastic Scottish produce on display – I suspect some of it will be long gone by the time that Christmas arrives!”
