Caterer Wilson Vale wins first contract with London school
Offering its services for the venue’s 250 pupils (aged 2-7) and 55 staff, a team of five Wilson Vale employees provide a ‘family service’ lunch for kindergarten and pre‑reception children in their classrooms, as well as a full lunch service in the dining hall for the older children.
It also caters for the school’s breakfast and after-school clubs, and hospitality catering.
Wilson Vale co-founder, Andrew Wilson, said: “This is a particularly special gain for Wilson Vale as it is our first London school.
“When working with young customers, our goal is always to nurture a life-long love of good food and to provide a level of care and passion, and we know that we are absolutely at one with the school’s ethos on this.
“Providing a balanced, nutritious meal is really important - especially for young children who are learning and growing. All of our food is wholesome and healthy, and we follow the principles of using fresh quality raw ingredients, adding no preservatives, salt or additives.”
Dominik Magyar, director of Herne Hill School, added: “We aim for excellence in all of our provision for the children in their most important formative years.
“This includes not only a varied, healthy and tasty food offering based on fresh produce across the seasons, but also making nutrition and food even more central to the children’s educational experience at Herne Hill School.
“We feel that Wilson Vale is best placed to help us realise these high ambitions and are very much looking forward to working with them.”
