Innovation

We work hard to create a culture where our team are encouraged to push boundaries.

Our approach...

Our innovation team is wholly focused on bringing cutting-edge solutions to our clients and customers from digital to food and nutrition to concepts.

This culture of innovation is fundamental to the way we operate and we believe that our success as a business is dependant on our ability to understand market trends and adapt them in the most suitable way to our sectors.

Concept development

 

Our concept development team develop bespoke, in house, concepts to incorporate the latest food from the high-street and nutrition trends.

Concepts include our new further education brand ‘Society Street Kitchen’ which brings the best of British street food to our further education colleges, our award-winning brand ‘Trashed’, which focuses on using food items that would otherwise be wasted - this took home a Footprint Award and was shortlisted for the Waste2Zero Awards.

We work with leading food-influencers and chefs on collaborations from high-street brands to fine dining.

Food and nutrition

 

Our award-winning food team is led by our Executive Chef, Peter Joyner, who takes inspiration both locally and internationally to ensure that our food is always market-leading using sustainably sourced and local ingredients where possible.

Working closely with Peter, Mandy Davies our head of Dietetics and Nutrition and her team ensure our health and wellbeing commitments are embedded into our menus, from low sugar menus in education to vegan menus in across our business and industry sector.

Digital

 

We are committed to delivering a world-class digital offer, including a truly frictionless order experience for all of our customers whether in a primary school, office environment or hospitality suites.

Our innovation team constantly test the market for state of the art digital innovation to enrich the lives of our customers. They have developed a number of in-house technology innovations, including our bespoke ‘Breaz’ app which allows customers to browse, order and pay, from their phone and our proprietary school meal ordering technology ‘LunchHound’ which is modernising the school lunch ordering system.
