Alliance in Partnership to use electric vehicles to deliver to schools

Specialist education caterer Alliance in Partnership (AiP) has launched two new electric vehicles with pupils from two London schools winning the chance to name them.

AiP manages 27 Borough of Kensington and Chelsea contracts worth £8.5m, which includes 13 standalone production kitchens and seven hub kitchens. The new electric vehicles will deliver fresh food from the hub kitchens to satellite schools with no cooking facilities of their own.

The introduction of the vehicles is forecasted to save about 40% or £20,000 per annum. In conjunction with the new vans, AiP operations managers, working on the 27 contracts, already walk or use public transport, contributing a further £11,000 saving per annum.

Operations director Paul Rogers presented Mohamed El Meyar from Middle Row Primary with a mountain bike and made a contribution to the school for its vegetable garden for the winning name of Omega 3-6-9. The second winning name will be announced on 8 December at Ashburnham School with the winner also being presented with a special prize.
