Independent Catering achieves silver Food for Life Served Here award

Independent Catering has achieved a Food for Life Served Here silver award from the Soil Association for serving fresh, local and honest meals at all its schools.

The caterer serves only UK meat accredited by the RSCPA or Red Tractor and all menus are free from harmful preservatives.

Andrew Saunders, managing director for Independent Catering, said: “We are delighted to have been re-awarded the Food for Life Served Here silver award despite its more robust criteria which underlines our absolute passion for serving food that is both ethically sourced and loved by our students.”

With 90% of their schools in Kent, the Sevenoaks-based Independent Catering – which has a turnover of £15m – is best-placed to source much of its fresh produce from the surrounding area.
