Caterers looking to achieve a bronze, silver or gold Food for Life Catering Mark can now lean on Bernard Matthews' range of Quality British turkey products to achieve their aim.
Having become a Catering Mark supplier member, Bernard Matthews Foodservice can provide caterers with products which can help them create menus that meet the Catering Mark criteria.
All products within Bernard Matthews Foodservice's Big Green Tick and Golden Norfolk ranges are made from Quality British turkey from the company' s own farms across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire, all of which are Assured Foods (Red Tractor) certified. The ranges, which include traditional favourites, ingredients products and whole muscle roasts are also free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, as well as hydrogenated vegetable oils.
For caterers, the Catering Mark is a unique way to gain independent endorsement for serving fresh food customers can trust, while promoting healthy eating and eco-friendly menus.
As part of the fastest growing best practice scheme, Bernard Matthews Foodservice can help make the process of accreditation straightforward for its customers and is equipped to advise on relevant information caterers need for inspection, offering support through the audit.
In addition, the Catering Mark is a guarantee from the Soil Association that what's on the menu is freshly prepared, free from undesirable additives and better for animal welfare.
More than 600,000 meals that meet the Catering Mark standards are already being served in the UK every day and anyone can use the mark who is serving great food. Initially launched into schools to address the issues highlighted by Jamie Oliver's school food campaign, the accreditation has expanded into hospitals, universities, nurseries and workplaces.
