Aramark Defence Services was originally formed in 2017 to operate three of the regional Hestia contracts on behalf of the MOD. Our company focuses specifically on the needs of the defence sector and as a result, we specialise in delivering a wide range of soft facilities services including catering, cleaning, mess services and waste management, tailored specifically to the needs of our customers.
Who actually! Hestia was the Ancient Greek goddess of hearth and home, sister of the king of the gods, Zeus. In this context, however, Hestia refers to the process by which the MOD streamlined all their soft FM contracts for the Navy, Army and Airforce into 7 regional contracts which were put out to tender. ADS secured three of them; South East and London, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the North.
At all times lead by example and do what is right. Strive to win hearts and minds as that is where the true power of our service lies. Concentrate on what makes a real difference to our customers…

We are honoured to provide valuable support services to our military personnel and do so with pride and openness. We continually strive to deliver the best value for money, through new and exciting menus…
“The customer can see a real difference in the offers that are available, not only with the Core choices but also the retail offer, notable the standards and the pricing.”
“The feedback I have received from units has been great to hear. The service / hotplate areas and dining room are looking brilliant now that they have had their facelifts!”
“The professional credibility of Aramark rode on its delivery of PAYD in Northern Ireland and I must say that the team produced the goods. 1 May saw tills open, excellent menus served and friendly staff assisting customers as they transition to a new dining system.”
“The food was outstanding and the staff were exceptional, all guests commented on how enjoyable the food was and how friendly and professional the staff were. The company should be extremely proud.”
“Great food offer guys, value for money and well received by the troops in London. Please keep it up!”
“We recently had a Care Quality Commission inspection of the facility which we passed. We are very happy with the professionalism the cleaning team show on a day to day basis and they are instrumental in helping us achieve the standard of cleanliness that we require in a clinical building.”
“Having been supported by many Junior ranks messes over the years, I can say with complete sincerity, that you and your staff have provided the best level of service and food and should be very proud of the reputation you have built up.”
“The food and service was outstanding! I had lots of people come and tell me to pass their compliments on to the chefs. People were so impressed that I think it’s only fair to recognise the achievement on paper.”
“The G1 Audit team from 4 Bde carried out their audit/inspection and no points were raised. They could not even offer recommendations on how to enhance the service you provide. Your knowledge and experience were vital in ensuring that the unit remained compliant.”
“The recent disruption caused by snow was a classic example of your work ethic, managing to restore calm from the chaos of 3 days of lost clinics. Without your ongoing sterling efforts, the RRU would likely cease to run effectively thus impacting our core business of patient care.”
