Catering & Foodservice Logistics

At Cakum Global, we understand that every business and location is unique, and we believe that your catering service should reflect that uniqueness. Led by João Guimarães, we are committed to enriching your environment, whether it’s an oilfield, a mining camp, a military base, or any remote site, by offering innovative and dynamic food service solutions that go beyond mere sustenance. Our focus is on partnering with you to add real value to your operations, enhancing the well-being and morale of your personnel through quality dining experiences.

Holistic Approach to Menu Design

Cakum Global embraces a holistic approach to menu design, food preparation, and service delivery. We consult with experienced chefs to create menus that are not only wholesome and tasty but also meet the nutritional needs of your personnel’s busy lifestyles. Our menus undergo rigorous dietary analysis to ensure that they contribute to the well-being and productivity of your team.

Local Supplier and Development

Cakum Global can work with your catering and facilities service provider to enhance Corporate Social Responsibility programs, including the development of programs to enhance local content and engagement of local suppliers within the area you operate. This is a classic amalgamation of our Procurement, Logistics, Facilities and Corporate Social Responsibility capabilities.

While Cakum Global does not directly provide catering services, our expertise lies in consulting and assisting you in establishing and improving your remote site catering operations. We can collaborate with reputable catering service providers, leveraging our extensive knowledge and experience to evaluate the providers that will ensure that your catering needs are met with excellence and perform in your environment. For established operations, Cakum Global can provide oversight and steward operational improvement and compliance.

“Most recently, we contracted [Cakum] for a period of three months, in order to kick off and support the preparation of a comprehensive technical proposal for a major remote site services project for Shell Exploration & Production in the Middle East. This resulted in a significant win for our organization. We have been most satisfied with Mr Aaron Birkbeck in particular, who has worked many long hours to achieve the end result and ensured timely responses and a comprehensive document response.”
