Edwards and Ward, our school meal provider, wanted to share with you the excellent news that they have successfully retained the “Gold Food for Life” award for the 3rd year running.


This is excellent news and confirms our absolute commitment to the school meal service in Gloucestershire.  We are proud to be the only contract in the whole country to hold this prestigious award for an entire contract.

 

In order to retain the “Gold Food for Life” award we have met their strict criteria, which includes all fresh meat being sourced in Gloucestershire and delivered by Ben Creese Country Butchers directly to all our kitchens; Our vegetables are seasonal and locally sourced where possible, which is in Gloucestershire itself, hence supporting local business and growers which in turn enhances local economy; our turkey and chicken are all organic together with all Pork being outdoor reared.  This also supports the local economy, creating and maintaining jobs within Gloucestershire.
