Education caterer Aspens Services has been awarded the Soil Association's Food for Life Gold award at eight north Somerset primary schools.
The caterer was recognised for providing freshly prepared, locally sourced, organic, free-range and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) meals.
John Roe, managing partner at Aspens, described the award as a fantastic achievement.
"The award is also a tribute to the hard-working regional farmers and producers who provide us with a first-class range of ingredients.
"Of course, it's not just about the food - our approach is also based on working with pupils, parents and schools to help children and young people learn about food and cooking, understand how good food is produced and why it is so important to eat well."
