Sector support

Education

From schools to universities, this sector means catering for a multi-cultural range of consumers with a wide range of dietary requirements, who are keen to immerse themselves in international cuisine and adventurous ways of eating.

We understand the importance of offering nutritionally balanced options to this customer base, with meals also being suited to those following vegan and vegetarian diets whilst also being mindful of declarable allergens and convenience.

Our development chefs are constantly working to bring new flavours and inspirational recipe ideas to you - all full of colour, texture and of course flavour with the help of the finest stock and sauce bases on the market.
