As the largest county in England, North Yorkshire is home to 25 secondary schools and nearly 300 primary schools. Joanne Simpson, Area Manager for catering facilities at North Yorkshire County Council is part of a dedicated team responsible for serving over 40,000 meals a day.
After meeting at LACA, Joanne and the council rolled out Wrapmaster – the professional dispensing system – across its school kitchens within two months, as part of the council’s strict policies on hygiene and food safety.
“Food Safety is a top priority and we were keen to source new products that will help us to maintain the high standards we have in our kitchens, ensure we provide the very best levels of food safety, as well as meet the needs of individual pupils and their welfare. We must be very careful, and Wrapmaster helps keep the kitchens clean, reducing the daily hazards linked to having film, foil and parchment in the kitchen.”
Since Cofresco Foodservice partnered with North Yorkshire County Council, catering teams have been using the Wrapmaster 4500 to dispense 45cm cling film and foil, as well as the smaller Wrapmaster 3000 (30cm wide) for baking parchment.
“For me, Wrapmaster is safer, faster and cleaner. We’d like to introduce another dispenser into our primaries, where they will use foil and parchment.
The feedback has been all very positive, Wrapmaster is clean, tidy and just looks better in the kitchen.”
