BonCulina wins two school meal contracts

12th Nov 2020 - 06:00
Foodservice contractor BonCulina has announced it will enter the education sector, after it was awarded contracts at Rosewood Independent School and Branton Community Primary School.

BonCulina will provide nutritious school compliant meals to both the schools located in Northumberland. A typical school meal delivery consists of hot lunches, including roast chicken, shepherd’s pie, sausage & mash, fish pie as well as a selection of healthy breakfast items and desserts.

Jennifer Wood, proprietor at Rosewood Independent School, commented: “At Rosewood Independent School, we believe healthy eating supports the link between health, behaviour and achievement. We support a zero-food waste vision; therefore, we were excited to choose BonCulina to provide meal options for our pupils and help us achieve this goal.

“We share the same vision and were happy to learn more about how they invest a percentage of their profits into providing meals to children in Africa for every child fed in the UK, through their ‘A Meal for a Meal’ CSR programme.”

BonCulina said they were delighted to have received positive feedback, not only for the diversity of meals but also the Toris Pak packaging.

Zoë Ryan, headteacher at Branton Community Primary School, added: “We have chosen BonCulina as our catering partner, because it helps us offer a hot and nutritious lunchtime meal during this current climate, without the need of running a full working kitchen.

“We are a healthy school, so the nutritional value and balanced nature of the meals are very important to us. The ‘A Meal for a Meal’ programme is also important as we know that we are supporting meals for children in need, in another part of the world.”

BonCulina tackles challenges created by Covid-19, through three key elements:

  • Diversity: Nutritious meals covering all dietary requirements.
  • Serving: Torus Pak® patented technology that enables customers to recreate restaurant plated dishes.
  • Menu planning: Online tool enabling weekly and monthly meal planning.
