From November 2020, Aspens Services will be providing our school lunches. This page provides you with some information about the company and the service they provide.
Since our beginning in April 2008, we have grown quickly and now manage over 500 locations across the UK. Established by catering professionals, with a shared passion for great food, who came together with a joint aim; to develop an outstanding catering company that values good food, champions quality produce, provides impeccable customer service and staff satisfaction above all else.
Our large regional team shares a common purpose – to ensure that we place people at the heart of everything we do – from our catering teams in our schools and academies to our clients and each individual customer. Great food begins with great people, cooking fresh food using quality ingredients.
There’s so much we consider when developing a primary school menu – variety, colour, taste and texture are all vital to the success of a dish when it comes to our primary school customers. For the younger ones we use taster portions to encourage them to try something new or different. Once the unfamiliar food becomes recognisable, the children are more likely to expand their food choices.
Menus need to be simple to understand, whilst providing a selection of dishes that the children will eat and provide the necessary nutrients needed for them to grow healthily and keep energised. This helps to educate too in the benefits and importance of healthy eating.
