June 13, 2017
Independents by Sodexo has been awarded the contract to provide catering and hospitality services at Clifton College, Bristol, one of the UK’s leading independent, co-educational public boarding schools.
The contract is due to commence on 1 July 2017 and will cover pupil, staff, hospitality and event catering.
The new catering service from Sodexo will provide pupils and staff with a wide range of dishes with an emphasis on fresh, nutritious and seasonal, using its ‘fresh food from scratch’ concept.
The College was first established in 1862 and now educates over 1,100 pupils aged between 2 and 18 years. Sodexo will therefore be providing over 2,000 meals a day, in addition to catering and hospitality for the school’s commercial events.
Jeremy Alderton, Managing Director of Independents by Sodexo, said: “Independents by Sodexo is delighted to begin a new partnership with Clifton College. We believe our offering of freshly made, nutritious and seasonal menu options cooked by our highly skilled chefs, will be met with enthusiasm by both pupils and staff alike.”
Dr Tim Greene, Headmaster at Clifton College, said: “Our strong reputation for providing a ‘home from home’ environment for our pupils and excellent hospitality is vitally important to us. After looking at a range of providers, we chose Sodexo due to their proven track record in providing children with healthy and delicious school meals. We were impressed with their creative yet healthy menus and are very much looking forward to working with them.”
