Eden Foodservice receives MSC certification for Brighton & Hove schools

Education caterer Eden Foodservice has achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification at 62 primary and special schools in the Brighton & Hove area.

The company, which is part of Initial Facilities, worked in partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council to attain the accreditation and will now serve MSC sustainable fish to pupils at each school.

Simon James, managing director of Eden Foodservice said: "The achievement of gaining the Marine Stewardship Council certification is part of our ongoing commitment to deliver a sustainable service today in order to protect tomorrow, whilst providing high quality school meals and promoting food education across the schools we serve in Brighton and Hove."

Ruth Westcott, commercial officer for the Marine Stewardship Council added: "By choosing sustainable fish for their menus, they are helping to protect the marine environment, making sure that there will be fish for school meals for them and for future generations.

Eating oily fish has been shown to improve cognition and agility in performing mental tasks and school meals guidelines mean it has to be on the menu at least once every three weeks.
