Sodexo wins £4m five-year contract with Cheshire school

Sodexo's school caterer Independents has been awarded a £4m, five-year contract by King's School in Chester.

The caterer will take over the service on 4 April 2019 providing meals for the school's more than 1,100 pupils aged between four and 18.

Jeremy Alderton, managing director of Independents by Sodexo, said: "We are delighted to be entering into this partnership with the King's School. We know that young people want variety in their food but are also conscious about sustainability and provenance.

"Our highly skilled chefs will be creating a selection of dishes using sustainably sourced ingredients that will not only interest and excite the pupils but will also power performance to help them get the most out of school."

Hayley Jordan, bursar of the King's School Chester, added: "We were really impressed with the way the Independents by Sodexo team engaged with us throughout the tender process. They took the time to understand the ethos of the school and what we are looking for from our catering service.

"Independents by Sodexo have an impressive track record of taking an innovative approach to providing healthy school meals, and we are looking forward to working with the team to develop menus that will nourish and satisfy pupils and staff alike."
