School Meals

Hutchison Catering have been working with schools, colleges and academies for the last 10 years providing high quality school catering for pupils and students. This has been via single site and group catering contracts concerning state secondary’s, F. E facilities and larger groups of Primary Schools.  The main concentration of our business being secondary schools in County Durham, Sunderland, Darlington, Leeds and Selby.

In all cases customer satisfaction has been high, school meal take up increased for both pupils and staff and the quality and nutritional standard of food served improved. We have developed a reputation from Head Teachers for our responsiveness and ability to tailor a catering provision to meet individual school catering needs.

We have significant success in transferring school catering contracts over from local authorities and larger organisations as we have always specialised in creating a catering service that works specifically for the client and school rather than adopting a “one box fits all” approach.

Nutrient Based School Meals

We have extensive knowledge of the current School Food Plan and have worked closely with the Children’s Food Trust regarding one of only two pilot schemes nationally to trial the nutrient based standards before they were introduced.

We work with quality, local suppliers who are certified suppliers of produce that is Assured Food Standards, Certified Sustainable Seafood (Marine Stewardship Council and LEAF, linking Environment & Farming.
