Premier Foods joins pioneering food for life supplier scheme
We are pleased to announce that we have joined the Soil Association’s prestigious Food for Life Supplier Scheme. This means caterers awarded The Food for Life Catering Mark, or looking to achieve the Mark, can purchase some of the UK’s biggest brand names, including McDougalls, Paxo and Ambrosia, with the knowledge and reassurance that they meet Food for Life Catering Mark entry level criteria.
Sarah Robb, channel marketing manager at Premier Foods commented: “We’re always looking at ways we can best meet the needs of our customers. With more steps being taken by foodservice operators towards achieving a sustainable supply chain, and increasing demand from caterers for socially responsible suppliers, we’re proud that we can offer a number of products within our foodservice portfolio to help meet this need and add real value for customers.”
The Catering Mark demonstrates best practise in the industry. Caterers with the bronze Mark have been recognised for serving fresh food that meets nutritional guidelines and helps make healthy eating easier. At bronze award level, the Catering Mark addresses many key concerns and provides assurance to consumers that meals are traceable, healthy, made from fresh ingredients and are free from trans fats and undesirable additives. Caterers who choose to source more certified, higher welfare or sustainable products, or local and seasonal products, can achieve additional points, helping them progress to Silver and Gold award levels.
