The Nationwide Caterers Association
Hello there. We’re NCASS, The Nationwide Caterers Association. NCASS is the UK’s only trade association for mobile caterers and street food traders. You probably already knew that.
Our mantra? To give caterers info, systems and support to be safe, legal and profitable traders.
Caterers join the NCASS family for all sorts of reasons, but most commonly because they want to know there’s someone there for them. Someone who’s got their back. Someone who can help them in a sticky situation or answer their questions when they’re caught unawares. That’s us.
