innovate – honest to goodness

 

In just ten years, we’ve grown our base of satisfied customers to over 100 schools and canteens across primary, secondary and sixth form, bringing our unique recipe for success to each and every one of them.

 

TOP OF THE CLASS

 

We work together with schools, teachers, parents and students, tackling issues of healthy eating, organising food focus weeks and teaching students about balanced diets. We keep our own report cards and rate ourselves on what we believe is essential to our success. If we don’t score top marks, we put in some extra effort to get there.
