Company culture, delivered.
At City Pantry, we cultivate the culture that every CEO dreams about, through food. Food is universal. Everybody eats, teams need nourishing, and all the benefits of other perks come with it. As well as a few more, like deeper focus, healthier teams, and recruitment savings. Even a substantial ROI.
After three years, over 500 of London's best teams – including Google, Facebook, Spotify and Buzzfeed – have joined us in eating together to work better. Our team of 40 eats together at least three times a week, and as you'd expect, making company culture our business means ours is always on our mind. We create environments that make people want to come to work, and our own office is no exception.

Cultivating company culture is challenging – CEOs tell us that creating an environment to attract talent and retain them for the longhaul is their biggest challenge. It keeps them up at night.
Many of the world's best teams solve this with perks. Yoga classes, drinks after work and team socials are good; they make for happy employees who in turn work better.
But they're not for everyone.
Food is universal. Everybody eats, teams need nourishing, and all the benefits of other perks come with it. As well as a few more, like increased productivity, healthier employees, and closer teams. Even a substantial ROI.
That's what we do. We cultivate the culture that every CEO dreams about, through food.
