Education caterer Pabulum has gained 27 new contracts worth £15 million over the course of the past 12 months.
Among the new business wins is the Tetherdown Consortium, which includes nine primary schools in the Borough of Haringey, North London. The new three-year contract is worth £3.3 million and it will see Pabulum catering for more than 3,300 pupils and staff.
Pabulum uses 94 per cent fresh food in its offering, which it said helped it to secure the new contracts.
Nelson Williams, Pabulum’s managing director, said: “We want to create a fresh food culture within schools, that’s why all our meals are produced on site, from scratch, using fresh, nutritionally balanced ingredients. We hope this will help inspire a lifelong love of fresh food in young people.”
Pabulum’s primary offer includes a “Pabulum Dining Experience”, which features “a range of incremental service solutions and branding, which help make lunch-time enjoyable and interactive, as well as educational for children”.
The company is also reducing white granulated sugar use across its entire business, which also resonated with leadership teams at many of the schools.
