Our Story

JPL is the brainchild of 2 industry professionals coming from a second generation of catering industry with a passion for good food, committed to succeed and strong client relationships.

Edson Lopes Junior ("Junior") has always had a great passion for cooking, and long before he gained his culinary qualifications from West London College he loved to host family and friends for a good meal. Pamela Rea Lopes, his wife, is driven by new challenges and after worked as executive manager in a financial training company for over 5 years she felt that it was time to put his husband's talent into business. JPL Catering is born.

While Junior is cooking and training chefs to deliver healthy and tasty meals to clients, Pamela is utilising her extensive financial knowledge and business acumen to manage all aspects of JPL Catering.

Junior and Pamela had their first child in 2011 and second in 2015 and the experience of becoming a parent has show them that we all play an important part on our community and have a huge responsibility to make our world a better place to live in.

They are enriched and rewarded when they see their many clients (brides, grooms, headmasters, teachers, pupils, and notable visitors such as Boris Johnson, David Cameron, Henry Dimbleby, and Catherine Middleton) enjoying their food, drink and service.
