Pride Catering awarded silver Soil Association Food for Life Catering Mark

Guildford-based contractor Pride Catering ](http://www.pridecatering.co.uk/)has been awarded the Soil Association's Food for Life Silver Catering Mark for its work at St Stephens School in Twickenham, which is also one of Food for Life's flagship schools.

Deborah Kenny, Pride's senior operations manager, said the team won the award because of the high food standards and the company's commitment to traceability and provenance. "We only use free-range chicken and eggs; all our fruit, vegetables and milk are organic, and we definitely don't use undesirables like GM ingredients, E-numbers and hydrogenated fats," she said.

All meat is either free-range or locally sourced Red Tractor standard and Pride only use MSC-certified sustainable seafood.

Katrina Kollegaeva of the Soil Association said: "For Pride, ‘not possible' was just not an answer they were prepared to give when faced with the challenge of sourcing suitable local and organic products for the school.

"We're very much looking forward to working with the Pride team on achieving Gold for St Stephens, and getting more of Pride's schools to be part of Food for Life."
