Independents by Sodexo enrols in new school catering deal

Independents by Sodexo has been awarded a five-year contract, worth £4 million, to manage catering services at The King’s School in Chester, one of the leading co-educational day schools in the country.

The new catering service from Independents by Sodexo will commence on 4 April 2019 and will offer a wide range of dishes with a focus on fresh, nutritious and seasonal food.

Independents by Sodexo will also provide investment to the school for the ongoing development of the services, while the onsite team will have opportunities to continually enhance their culinary skills by taking part in the company’s chef scholarship, which provides access to industry-leading training.

Jeremy Alderton, Managing Director for Independents by Sodexo, said: “We are delighted to be entering into this partnership with The King’s School. We know that young people want variety in their food but are also conscious about sustainability and provenance.

“Our highly skilled chefs will be creating a selection of dishes using sustainably sourced ingredients that will not only interest and excite the pupils, but will also power performance to help them get the most out of school.”

The King’s School Chester has been educating children for 477 years and currently has over 1,100 pupils aged four to 18.
