Education


Delivering to Caterers within Schools, Colleges & Universities

A Thorough Understanding of Education Foodservice

We have an in-depth understanding of catering managers and chefs’ needs across all educational establishments. Working closely with our education customers, we help them deliver against their budget and objectives and most importantly, overcome catering challenges without compromising on product quality or the eating experience.

We’re fully aware that Covid-19 has led to additional challenges for catering teams within the sector, including hygiene, health, cost implications and serving methods.  Whilst you continue to focus on maintaining high nutritional standards for your pupils, we’re here to assist and guide you through the process. As your foodservice provider, we can support with menu advice, packaging solutions and market insights that enable you to meet the regulations and procedures set out for the sector.

School Compliant Product Range

We have over 40 years’ experience supplying a quality range of products to the education sector.  Our school compliant range includes:

  • A wide mix of products that enable you to start from scratch, alongside innovative solutions that reduce preparation time and help with portion control, consistency and staff skillsets.

  • Country Range products, which are BRC accredited and provide full traceability on all products.

  • A comprehensive branded product selection from trusted suppliers. Our longstanding supplier partnerships allow us to provide our primary school customers with solutions for School Food Plan compliant meals, drinks and snacks.

"The quality of the products is superior to suppliers used previously”

Rachel Pratt, Catering Manager at Stuart Bathurst High School


Peace of Mind Product Sourcing

We know that reliability and stock availability are the main influencing factors when education operators are selecting their wholesaler. Our fully traceable product range is BRCGS audited, providing complete peace of mind that our robust supply chain ensures product integrity, food safety and traceability.

Our range of fresh meat from our on-site butchery, Creed Family Butchers, is a great example of both traceability and provenance. Red Tractor Beef from the West Country and RSPCA Assured Pork sourced from a single farm in Wiltshire, both assist caterers who value the Food for Life Catering Mark and provide reassurance on product origin.

A Consultative Approach

As the demand for availability and choice in the out-of-home market increases, this influences the preferences of pupils of all ages. Caterers are therefore under pressure to provide an offering that competes with the high street in terms of innovative world food concepts, ‘meal deal’ price points and feeding hundreds of students within tight timeframes and rising overheads.

Our experienced team help our education customers embrace and meet these challenges by:

 

  • Taking a consultative approach to menu development.

  • Assisting with world food menu concepts - both plated and as ‘food to go’ offers.

  • Providing menu planners and meal suggestions.

  • Providing you with the most up-to-date industry news and insights.
