Working with Early Years and Primary School Caterers
Peace of mind from product sourcing
Our fully-traceable product range is BRC audited, providing complete peace of mind that our robust supply chain ensures product integrity, food safety and traceability.
Our range of fresh meats 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 reassurance on product origin.
School Compliant Products
We have partnered with our key suppliers to provide our primary school customers with solutions for School Food Plan compliant meals, drinks and snacks.

Foodservice Supply to Secondary, Further and Higher Education
Catering to the preferences of the student consumer
The increasing availability and choice in the out of home market has influenced the preferences of secondary school age consumers. Caterers are therefore under pressure to provide an offer 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 team help our education customers to embrace and meet these challenges by:
- Taking a consultative approach to menu development
- Assisting in the generation of world flavour menu concepts: both plated and as ‘food to go’ offers
- Launching revised menus.
