Throughout the UK, our our school catering services provide freshly prepared, modern, exciting food served by caring, skillful people dedicated to improving the wellbeing of young people in their learning environment.
Through our specialist business Taylor Shaw, one of the UK's leading contract caterers in the education sector, we work in :
- Primary school catering
- Secondary school catering
- College catering
- Independent Schools
Elior is also one of the leading specialist providers of catering and hospitality services to Universities.
In all these sectors we bring fresh, nutritious, good quality food to our young customers, in a form they will enjoy, while delivering sustainable value to budget holders. We aim to make food a pleasure that is a key to wellbeing, a boost to performance, a service at the heart of the school or college or campus.
Primary School Catering
Our food service in primary schools is designed to ensure we provide fresh food from good quality ingredients prepared from scratch by fully trained colleagues on the school premises.
Our dietitians and cooks ensure our meals are nutritionally balanced, creative and appealing to children, to meet all the requirements of the Department of Education School Food Standards.
Secondary School Catering
Our focus for school catering at secondary schools is on providing the range of choices that will appeal to the evolving tastes and aspirations of pupils as they develop from children to teenagers and young adults.
Our priority in this environment is to arrive at a balanced portfolio of offers that meets both the demand for high street comparable food while maintaining government standards and school food plan policy.
We work closely with Independent Schools to help make food an enjoyable and healthy part of the experience of life at school. We are partnering with more bursars, head teachers and governors who want to make the transition from self-operated to outsourced catering services, or want to find new catering partners who will bring a fresh approach.
Our Taylor Shaw teams are experts in catering in this specialist fast paced field, constantly moving with new food trends and requiring particular skills in meeting the needs of a very mixed community of students.
Food is in demand at all times of day, not at set times, as grab&go, as traditionally served meals, as café offers. Flexibility is the key, and so is value.
