Today, Food Story announces another major award and accomplishment for the team, having been exclusively appointed by the Historic Royal Palaces as the sole kosher caterer accredited across a list of enviable historical venues including Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House and Tower of London.

The contract award signals further recognition that Food Story has brought a revolution to the kosher catering market.
