The trustees of the Dolce Limited Retirement Benefits Scheme have selected First Actuarial to provide administration and actuarial services from this month.
First Actuarial partner Sam Mullock will lead a team working with the scheme of the catering company, which is one of the largest providers of school dinners to children in the UK.
Dolce trustees said First Actuarial's work for the Government Actuary's Department with broadly comparable pension schemes - for transferring ex-public sector employees from outsourced council contracts - was key in its choice.
Mullock said: "We believe that our smart pension solutions will help them run the scheme efficiently and effectively."
The appointment follows that of The Cheviot Trust's in January, which saw First Actuarial selected via a competitive tender process to provide services for the defined benefit and defined contribution master trust.
