The Leading News & Information Service For The Facilities, Workplace & Built Environment Community

A Green Line and Breakfast Time

24 February 2017 | Updated 01 January 1970

Saracen Interiors is extending its facilities management offering to include a complete selection of exterior and landscape services.

The new services, which will sit under the banner of Saracen Facilities, will include hard and soft landscape design, planting design and installation, bicycle storage installation, turfing, tree planting, building and outside area cleaning, hedge installation and landscape maintenance. The company plans to offer these services to all clients across commercial and residential portfolio.

Director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page said: “We’re very much responding to our customers with these latest services as we have had requests for additional landscaping services for some time. In the last six months or so, these requests have escalated and become more varied and we are now acting to formalise these offerings so that potential clients can source them independently rather than them being perceived as add-ons to existing projects."


BaxterStorey Better Breakfasts

The Better Breakfast plan, launched by hospitality provider BaxterStorey, aims to help busy office workers start their day with a healthy and nutritious meal. The offerings range from updates on well-known classics to brand new recipes inspired by the latest gastronomy trends.

The initiative responds to recent research that suggests 38% of breakfasts are chosen for their convenience, with many putting time before nutrition and taste and opting for the quickest breakfast to satisfy a morning craving. Many Better Breakfast products will be marked with ‘Healthy Me’ stickers, an easy to spot seal that indicates the dish has been nutritionally analysed and meets a set of healthy eating criteria.

Recipes include homemade honey, orange and cinnamon butter on a choice of artisan breads, pearled spelt or quinoa porridge with blackberry, rosemary and almond butter and shakshuka with dukkha and cheese curds.


Not so healthy

Also on offer are a range of more indulgent choices including; pastries, pancakes, waffles, French toast, posh butties and fully loaded big breakfasts such as The Full Mexican.

Breakfasts are currently being rolled out across the UK at more than half of BaxterStorey’s locations with plans to extend this further over the coming months.
