Local Caribbean catering company, MyDine Catering, lands multi-billion-pound company, Amazon, as their most recent client during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Throughout the pandemic Amazon and their team have worked to supply millions of homes across the UK, with billions of products being delivered over the last 6 months.
To reward staff for their hard work and dedication, the Amazon Droitwich team (which houses over 100 staff) requested the services of MyDine Catering to provide a Caribbean tasting experience for their entire team.
Amazon has also been revered for their support of the Black Lives Matter movement, to highlight and bring awareness of unlawful police brutality and killings throughout the course of the pandemic. In light of the heinous killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was suffocated to death by a police officer kneeling on his neck. Amazon have taken an active stance to further integrate their workforce by providing different and diverse cultural events to further inform educate and integrate their teams.

As a result, MyDine catering were brought in by Amazon to provide traditional and authentic Caribbean catering on Jamaican Independence Day (August 6th – the day Jamaica gained independence from the United Kingdom). With full COVID secure measures in place, the 100-strong staff were able to enjoy and talk over Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Vegan Coconut Veg Curry, Rice & Peas and signature Summer Salad. Watch our short video at Amazon below.
When asked, Mydine Catering founder Cleo said, “It was great to provide our Caribbean catering services to such a prestigious company like Amazon. In the current COVID-19 climate it’s been a challenge for us all, but we’ve never stopped pushing. In addition to creating our own COVID secure protocol for catering events. We’ve spent years preparing to work with such large companies and provide a stellar service that everyone can enjoy. Since the Black Lives Matter movement picked up more steam its been great to see a company like Amazon taking the time to educate themselves and their workforce around other cultures, beliefs and religions. Food is a great way to start a discussion and bring people together. So it was a pleasure to see and hear their team enjoying our taste of the Caribbean, engage with others and discuss the history of Jamaica with our team over our food”
