Cucina wins £1.6m Hertfordshire school catering deal

Education caterer Cucina has picked up a Hertfordshire school catering contract worth £1.6m.

The five year deal at Hertswood Lowe and Upper schools in Borehamwood will see Cucina serve 1,500 pupils across the two sites, with an estimated annual turnover of £300,000.

Cucina director Sam Davies said the caterer expects to see a "dramatic rise" in uptake of meals at the schools.

Steve Quinn, Cucina managing director, added: "As a school food company we have no desire to be the biggest on the block.

"We achieve benchmark standards of excellence by staying small and being highly selective in our pitching, which singles us out somewhat from many of our competitors."

The new contract commences 18 February, 2013.
