The Army Catering Corps (ACC) was a corps of the British Army, responsible for the feeding of all Army units. It was formed in 1941 and amalgamated into the Royal Logistic Corps in 1993.

The Catering Corps was originally formed in March 1941 as part of the Royal Army Service Corps. Following a detailed report by Sir Isidore Salmon as Honorary Catering Adviser for the Army, a school of catering was established at St. Omer Barracks in Aldershot. The Catering Corps became a corps in its own right in 1965.

Two members of the Army Catering Corps were killed while off duty in the Droppin Well bombing in 1982.

On 5 April 1993, following the Options for Change review, the Army Catering Corps united with the Royal Corps of Transport, the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, theRoyal Pioneer Corps, and the Postal and Courier Service of the Royal Engineers, to form the Royal Logistic Corps
