The membership body for independent catering businesses

We’re the only specialist organisation for independent food & drink businesses in the UK and have been supporting our members to be safe, legal and profitable for over 30 years. 

What we do

We’re committed to developing best practice for the independent sector 

For our members

We provide ongoing support, legal documentation, professional services, training courses, work opportunities and exclusive discounts to ensure you save time and money when it comes to running and making your business a success.

For the wider sector 

We’re always working on developing, supporting and growing our sector as part of the wider hospitality industry and have a range of training courses and services that can help you along the way.

Who we

work with

From associations across the food and events sector to festivals, Government bodies and  Street Food collectives, we are part of a network that works together with one aim in mind – to support you; our members. 


You are at the heart of everything we do.


Working with Government means that we’re ahead of the curve when it comes to changes that could affect our members and importantly we are able to protect your interests through our lobbying work. 

The Events Industry 

From festival and event associations to event organisers, concession companies and suppliers, we’re here to bridge that gap and raise the profile of our sector within the events mix. 


EHOs and Local Authority departments across the UK trust NCASS to promote best practice and make their jobs as easy as possible when it comes to inspections and getting the information they need. 


It’s key for us that we work with the right partners for you. Whether its saving you money on things you need day to day or getting the right expert advice and services, we always put you first.
