Catering excellence, dedicated to schools

HES Catering is the in-house service provider for the London Borough of Havering.

We are extremely proud in supplying a wide range of high quality catering services to the majority of schools within the borough. We also have partnerships with other schools outside of Havering and offer bespoke solutions and assistance to individual schools and businesses which have their own in-house catering teams.

HES Catering’s ongoing success is very straightforward: we have amazing colleagues throughout our sites bursting with experience who carefully prepare ‘Healthy, Fresh, Vibrant & Tasty’ meals with the highest quality produce for our wonderful clients. We serve over 15,000 meals per day in our schools and that is an amazing 2,660,000 + meals annually and growing.

It’s all about our people, food and clients. Our clients, whether they be young people or adults receive a service which 85% of our dishes are cooked fresh onsite with ingredients which are an array of – MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) fish, RSPCA Assured meat and poultry (dedicated to farm animal welfare) which include organic beef and free range chickens, organic milk and yoghurts, free range eggs and pork, Fairtrade and LEAF produce. Sustainability and our carbon footprint is a high priority and we will always endeavour to procure as much as possible from the UK and limit our food mileage.

We also recognise our responsibilities. Considering the increase in childhood obesity, it is always our aim to ensure we provide healthy, nutritious and well balanced meals to all. Therefore we continue to improve, educate and enhance the wellbeing of our clients. We work very closely with Public Health, Healthy Schools, Sustain, the London Food Board, Soil Association (and many more) to this end. All of our menus are designed to reflect our fresh food and healthy ethos and are nutritionally analysed. All clients have readily available allergy and carbohydrate charts. We are proud to hold the ‘Food for Life Silver Accreditation’

Our people are a core ingredient to what we deliver and rarely a day goes by that our senior management team are not inspired and motivated by our peoples commitment, innovation and dedication. We do truly value our colleagues and are committed to continued investment in them.

All of us at HES Catering are proud to be ‘feeding the future’.
