Workers shun fry-ups on Costain's ВЈ76m Welsh roads job

Construction workers employed on Costain's ВЈ76m Church Village bypass project in South Wales are eschewing fry-ups and bacon butties in favour of more healthy food.

Site caterers Akita Duggan and Paula O’Donovan, who took on a contract to feed 250 hungry workers two weeks ago said they have already noticed that their customers' appetites were different from what they expected.

Akita Duggan told “We are not selling as many [fry-ups] as we thought.

“A lot of the builders are on diets because they are just as vain as the rest of us and they are members of a diet club, which has a weigh-in on site every Thursday.

“They compete to see who’s lost the most weight every week and even check on each other to see if anyone’s been cheating.”

The pair have now set up a salad bar offering wholegrain rice, shredded cabbage, grated carrot, coleslaw and celery.
