Government Examining Compass on Rebate Complaint, Telegraph Says

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K. government is examining its contracts with catering company Compass Group Plc after a supplier complained that “huge” rebates were kept from customers, the Sunday Telegraph reported.

Compass charged some non-food suppliers rebates of more than 20 percent, the newspaper said, citing a letter from a supplier who asked the Cabinet Office not to be identified. Ian Sarson, managing director of Compass U.K. and Ireland, said the rebates were not hidden, the Telegraph said. A Cabinet Office spokesman said the suggestions in the letter will be taken “seriously,” the newspaper said.
