Under the guidance of Peter Fuchs, culinary director of both Celtic Manor and The ICC Wales, Heritage’s Creative Director, Nathalie McDonagh has designed and developed our newest pattern of 18/10 stainless steel bespoke cutlery – Woodland.
Heritage has been privileged work with Celtic Manor in Newport Wales for over 20 years, supplying both their Club House and Conference & Banqueting operations with tailored china, cutlery and other tableware. The new £83m International Convention Centre is located on land at the Celtic Manor estate and is the biggest conference centre ever built in Wales and the West of England. The centre is in a well-connected location with good motorway links to London and the Midlands and has 2000 acres of land and four great golf courses amongst other fantastic facilities. The ICC is bringing jobs and prosperity to Newport, and South Wales – putting Wales on the map as a destination for international business.
Heritage collection was delighted to win the contract to supply tableware to this world class venue. The ICC is raising the benchmark with its innovative food and setting new standards in conference catering. They’re offering fantastic menus with locally sourced fine ingredients. Heritage have worked with the ICC chefs to develop tableware that compliments the food and works well on a practical level, given the huge numbers of delegates for whom the centre will cater.
Martin McDonagh, the Chairman of Heritage Collection said… ‘Developing our newest pattern of cutlery with Peter Fuchs close involvement, demonstrates exceptional support to British Manufacturing, through a sustained partnership with Celtic Manor and now the ICC Wales. As a British manufacturer of designer tableware, it is essential for our Brand to be associated with such exceptional projects. Proving that small businesses, such as ours, are alive and kicking in the UK.’
Even in such uncertain times as Brexit, there remain unique opportunities for UK business. Over the coming months, we will be making an announcement to the industry about our latest exciting new venture!
