We are Aspens Services, a market leading contract catering company and we specialise in school food. We only work in the education sector, so we know what our customers want.
Children know what they like and like what they know!
We make sure that our Food Festival menus are packed with comfort dishes and at the same time, we help pupils take their first steps with new tastes to explore.
Please see our menus here.
The Company is committed to providing meals for children with medical requirements and any allergy or lifestyle needs. For core allergy and lifestyle requirements, this form can be returned to the school directly to notify the catering department of your child's requirements. Core allergen free menus available to all schools are NGCI (gluten), NGCI & milk free, milk free, egg free and allergen free. Vegan and Halal menus are also available on request. Core allergies are managed in accordance with our Allergy Policy. Parents may need a menu consultation with the catering team. For medical diet requests, this form can be returned to the school who should forward it on to the operations manager. It is vital that all forms are accompanied with a referral letter or other information from a medical professional (GP/consultant/dietician). The Operations Manager & Unit manager may need to meet the student’s parent/guardian to discuss any specific requirement and will consult with the company Nutritionist for bespoke dietary needs.
