Our catering service

We have a strong supply chain infrastructure in place to ensure that we can effectively service all of our contracts and guarantee continuity of service in the event of the failure of any single supplier. In addition, we also have a team of mobile and peripatetic cooks providing short-term staffing cover in the event of planned and unplanned absences.

The service complies with the school food standards and accredited by the soil association food for life bronze award. We founded our service on the provision of fresh food and this continues to be at our core today. We promote local and fresh with 75% of our meals being cooked daily on-site, and with ingredients from our three main suppliers located within Yorkshire to reduce our carbon footprint, and promote local businesses.

The understanding of the field to the fork is important to us, and with this in mind, we provide fun and educational cookery classes for pupils and parents as requested by our passionate and talented development and training team who all have years of experience in catering and educational settings.

Our cleaning service

In addition to providing school services, we also have customers from the corporate sector. We achieved ISO 9001 accreditation in July 2021. This quality standard is a globally recognised reward which provides our customers with the confidence that they are working with a supplier who provides a high standard of customer service.
