Vertas bolsters its presence in Norfolk

Vertas has entered partnerships with 12 schools in and around Norwich to grow, improve and save money on their catering provision.

The East Anglia-based multi-service facilities management provider has pledged to “shake up catering for good, with improvements to food quality, standards and service and save the schools running costs as a result”.

The school dining areas, serveries and kitchens will boast Verta’s ‘eats’ primary catering brand; coupled with a menu which has been carefully designed around balanced nutrition and outstanding taste. Seventy-two per cent of the ingredients and produce used will be sourced locally to Norfolk, ensuring the pupils receive a truly local meal.

The schools which have launched the new service from the Spring term, are: Acle Primary, Drayton Junior, Fairhaven Primary, Lakenham Primary, Little Melton Primary, Mile Cross Primary, Spixworth Infant, Spooner Row Primary, Sprowston Infant and Sprowston Junior, Thurton Primary, and Woodland View Junior.

 Ian Surtees, Vertas Group Limited’s CEO, said:

 “We are thrilled to be able to further grow our presence in Norfolk. Vertas has over the years worked tirelessly to perfect its school catering offer; ensuring we are ahead of the curve in food and service innovation.

“Through our investment into local supply partnerships and a keener focus on the customer, we have been able to develop an excellent food offer and save the client money which they can invest in other areas of the school business.”

Vertas has collaborated with the schools to develop bespoke offers, ensuring flexibility when it comes to launching the right service for the school, its staff and pupils.
