Civica, which recently acquired Fretwell Downing Hospitality and its market-leading cloud catering software Saffron offers paperless kitchen management, cashless technology (including contact-free fingerprint ID) and parent payments. Together, they provide local authorities and schools with a complete catering solution and you can find out more on Stand M40 at the School Food Show.

Civica’s solutions support food waste reduction including CO2 impacts, alongside promoting healthy eating, digital meal ordering and the management of safe, compliant catering operations.

And Saffron’s Purchase to Pay (P2P) module automates and simplifies the procurement process, making it easier for both caterers and their suppliers – and saving up to 70% of the associated costs of a paper-based system. Utilised by over 250 national and local suppliers, the platform gives school caterers the tools to manage stock levels and recipe costings, automatically raise and place purchase orders and maximise purchasing power.
