The Department for International Development's (DFID) two United Kingdom office staff restaurants have operated under contract to Mitie Technical Facilities since December 2010 on a non-subsidised basis.

Mitie Catering does not currently display the country of origin on DFID's staff restaurant menus and display boards. However, the country of origin information is readily available along the supply chain and all products can be traced back to source.
