Around 70% of our current business is in the education sector where we provide catering services to schools, academies, FE and HE colleges and universities.
We believe our passion for quality in all aspects of food service is unrivalled. We deliver a wide range of fresh food via our innovative Catering Managers, providing truly personalised menus and food solutions to our clients and customers.
Our catering teams are passionate about providing great food and great service. Our unrestricted purchasing policy ensures our teams have access to a wide range of locally sourced and speciality foods. It also ensures that we achieve our company mandate of providing 90% fresh food in all of our contracts.
Delivering Fresh, Seasonally Inspired Food, Everyday
We strive to produce delicious, tailor-made and above all healthy meals. Our menus are fully compliant with the Government’s School Food Plan and the nutritional standards outlined by The Children’s Food Trust. Furthermore our menus are supported by full nutritional and allergen information.
Our strength and success is built on the quality of our team, the training and development they receive on a consistent basis and the ‘can do’, supportive culture we encourage.
We passionately believe in ‘personally delivering excellence’ and this is underpinned with our company values;
- Passionate about fresh food and great service
- Team Academy’s strength comes from every individual taking personal responsibility
- Collectively recognising and celebrating success
- Delivering consistent improvements with a ‘can do’ attitude
- Open and honest communication at all levels
We operate our business and measure its success by the delivery of our promises. Strong partnerships with our clients develop as a result of continuous enthusiasm and positive recommendation from our existing clients to new business opportunities.
Catering Academy recognises the importance of ‘giving back’ and supports a number of charitable initiatives. This includes supporting the NEMA Foundation by providing school children with lunches at a school in Mozambique.
