The food provider to the health and social care sector, Apetito, has become an accredited Living Wage employer.

Accredited Living Wage employers pay staff the voluntary rate of £8.25, higher than the mandatory National Living Wage of £7.20, which came into force in April.

Paul Freeston, chief executive, said: “Our mission at apetito is to “make a real difference” and that means embedding principles that support our customers, our supply chain, and crucially, our work-force. 

“Supporting the accredited Living Wage is quite simply the right way to do business; it improves our employees’ quality of life, but also benefits our business and society as a whole.”

As part of the accreditation, the company has also announced plans to ensure all its contractors adhere to the new voluntary pay-rate.
