Home is where the heart is. A place we feel good and safe. In terms of the food we eat, choosing home-grown ingredients from producers in the vicinity makes a positive impact on our communities. That’s why we source fresh, seasonal ingredient from regional partners for our school and day care meals. We also pay attention to short travel distances and choose suppliers with high ethical standards.
Excellent food is more than just tasty. It also upholds top-notch quality standards. As a result, food safety practices and certified workflows are our top priority. For instance, we pay attention to short holding times and constant temperature checks.
By keeping kitchens in the vicinity of schools, using regional suppliers and making few delivery stops, we help protect the environment. Additionally, we are in the process of transitioning our fleet to electric over the next few years.
Food tastes best when it reminds us of home. That’s why we regular feature regional specialities on the menu. Traditional dishes and local favourites naturally bring a smile to children’s faces.
Our employees are rooted in our communities. They personally know our partners, and are familiar with the area’s social and cultural makeup, as well as the region’s culinary history. They are delighted to interact with the children, often in a local dialect.
