Procurement reviews and negotiation with suppliers
Schools can be confident that all suppliers have been suitably checked in terms of financial capability, quality, safety and delivery issues.
Suppliers and packaging
We require all suppliers to demonstrate what steps they take to minimise their environmental impact, in key areas such as transport/fleet management, fuel and logistics, and packaging/recycling.
We annually update related certificates from suppliers as evidence of compliance with appropriate standards. As a result, we aim to reduce the amount of unnecessary pollution and minimise the amount of road miles your food travels to get to you.
School kitchen inspections
We carry out internal audits to ensure compliance with health and safety regulations and food safety regulations.
School kitchens are also externally inspected by Barnsley Council's Regulatory Services.
