Sixth contract retained this summer for progressive education caterers Alliance in Partnership
An existing relationship of 3 years sees a two year extension worth £300,000 for specialist education caterer Alliance in Partnership (AiP).
AiP will continue to provide a fresh selection of daily nutritious hot and cold lunches, snacks and drinks prepared onsite. 14 nutritional standards and 11 food groups are incorporated into three week menu cycles which are developed mindful of ethnic minority requirements and allergy sensitive palettes.
"We are really pleased to have retained the contract with Lawrence Sheriff and have new menu ideas and special celebratory food days planned to compliment the curriculum,"
Quote from Head Teacher Peter Kent "We have recently achieved the Investor in People Gold Standard in June who proves the culture we strive for at the schools. We are pleased at the decision to continue developing our relationship with AiP and working towards a common goal of the health and welfare of our pupils."
A five week holiday cooking course began at Lawrence Sheriff on 12th June open to all pupils. Ingredients have been provided by AiP and the final culinary delights will be taken home by the master chefs themselves!
David Weller concludes: "It's this kind of activity in schools that we relish as a company."
"It's wonderful to see so many pupils involved in wanting to understand the origins of ingredients and how to prepare, cook and enjoy healthy food; to know that we have had a part in this process is extremely satisfying."
AiP hold a contract portfolio of over 150 schools, have reached an all-time high turnover of £13 million, and have progressive growth, sustainability and employee development objectives for the remainder of 2012.
