We'd love to give you a Demonstration
If you try it, you will love it! If you are a public sector school or caterer and wish to see our system in action, we can arrange a visit to a nearby school who uses us already. Caterers may also wish to try a completely free pilot. This would be for up to 5 schools and six months, and we pick up all costs (including payment fees). Click below to book a demo and find out more.
Try it out with a 6 month free pilot
We ran a 3 school trial within Bury. All three were different sized primaries, in different locations with different levels of affluence. In all three occasions the meal uptake increased between seven and ten percent for each of those schools. That’s a phenomenal amount of school meals – what a difference it’s making to those children now having a healthy meal every single day rather than a packed lunch.
