The move will see One Event Management’s catering brand, Mecco, and Absolute Taste rebrand to create a luxury event design company. Together, they will operate as Absolute Taste across a broad spectrum of hospitality services and concepts.
This will include Absolute Taste’s existing portfolio of restaurants and cafes, private jet catering, bespoke events, fixed site contracts and performance sports including F1 hospitality; as well as Mecco’s long-established contracts with live events and high-profile sporting occasions.
Neil MacLaurin, chairman of One Event Management said: "We couldn’t be more pleased that Lyndy and her team will be joining forces with One Event Management. Absolute Taste marks the best of the best in food design and hospitality, and is a fantastic fit as we strive to reach the pinnacle in food, drink and customer entertaining. We’re busy planning this year’s events and our new team is sure to knock creativity out of the park and create some phenomenal customer experiences."
Lyndy Redding, Founder and Managing Director of Absolute Taste added: "I love Absolute Taste. It’s my life and the people who work for us are my family, therefore this is such an exciting opportunity as it widens our scope and brings us a raft of fabulous new events to work on and extraordinary people to work with.
"Being part of the McLaren Technology Group for 20 years has been amazing, we will always have their DNA in the business and we look forward to continuing working with McLaren both in F1 and at the McLaren Technology Centre. This new chapter will see us working with like-minded individuals who all share our unique attention to detail and unrivalled levels of service."
