At ESS, we believe that great food goes hand in hand with great memories. Whatever your area of expertise – defence, government or offshore – a great food experience is important.

We chat, socialise and relax over food. It helps us function and gives us the ability to perform. It provides a sense of home.

We feed thousands of people every day

Over the years, we’ve learned what our clients and customers need to feel good in themselves. We know that the environments we create matter; that the dining experience is  different depending on where you are and who you’re with.

Great taste is important. So, our chefs and nutritionists put time and effort into creating delicious dishes, and the people in our kitchens demonstrate passion, commitment and expertise when preparing our food every day.

We make sure it's good for you too, providing the offers and information you need to make healthier choices.


Whether it’s a sandwich on the go or a VIP banquet, our food is prepared fresh every day using the best ingredients. From workplace restaurants, cafés and bars to business lunches and hospitality events, the quality of our defence, energy and government food service stands out.

We work with you to create dishes that cater to all tastes and dietary needs – from customers who live with allergies, food intolerances and sensitivities, as well as cultural and religious considerations, to a wide variety of voluntary diets. We know about food, so leave it in our hands.


We’d like to introduce you to the expert culinary team that support our frontline chefs.

Made up of professionals with years of experience in food service, our defence, energy and government culinary team develop and create delicious, seasonal dishes that aim to satisfy and inspire. They set the bar high and consistently maintain these standards.
