Our people are, without doubt, our greatest asset. They play a key role in providing you with a catering service you can rely on, so you can concentrate on providing education.
Each school has its own Operations Manager to oversee their catering – including assessing each team member’s current skills, highlighting their strengths and identifying any training that’s needed. For example, they’ll make sure Kitchen Assistants have the required NVQs, and that they and your Catering Supervisor attend HACCP, Health & Safety, Level 2 Healthier Food & Special Diets and Level 2 Allergen Awareness courses, plus service development days if necessary.
With Fresh, all kitchen staff have a minimum of Level 2 Food Hygiene, Manual Handling, COSHH, Health & Safety and HACCP training.
Your in-school team will have a clear hierarchy so everyone knows what they’re responsible for, and they’ll be supported by the rest of the Fresh team back in Crewe. They offer specialist support in areas such as Food Development, Procurement, Kitchen Design and Maintenance, Environmental Health, Health & Safety, Occupational Health and Human Resources.
