BonCulina enters UK education sector with two school meal contract wins

International foodservice operator BonCulina has expanded its presence in the UK market, by entering the education sector with two school contract wins.

It will be providing school meals to Rosewood Independent school and Branton Community primary school, both located in Northumberland.

Chris O'Neill, BonCulina UK sales and operations director, said: "It is great to enter the education sector and provide tasty, appealing and nutritionally balanced meals that support students in their school day.

"We are thrilled to work with Rosewood Independent school and Branton Community primary school, and we are delighted to have received positive feedback, not only on the diversity of our meals but also on the way these are delivered and served via Torus Pak packaging. While pupils are enjoying a wide range of hot meals, which have been carefully selected and nutritionally approved, the schools are benefitting from cost efficiency, flexibility and simplicity."

Jennifer Wood, proprietor at Rosewood Independent School, said: "At Rosewood Independent School, we believe healthy eating supports the link between health, behaviour and achievement. We support a zero-food waste vision; therefore, we were excited to choose BonCulina to provide meal options for our pupils and help us achieve this goal. We share the same vision and were happy to learn more about how they invest a percentage of their profits into providing meals to children in Africa for every child fed in the UK, through their ‘A Meal for a Meal' CSR programme."

Zoë Ryan, headteacher at Branton Community primary school, added: "We have chosen BonCulina as our catering partner, because it helps us offer a hot and nutritious lunchtime meal during this current climate, without the need of running a full working kitchen. We are a healthy school, so the nutritional value and balanced nature of the meals are very important to us. The ‘A Meal for a Meal' programme is also important as we know that we are supporting meals for children in need, in another part of the world."

BonCulina's UK business also covers business and industry, education, social care and care home, and healthcare.
