AIP LANDS PRESTIGIOUS LONDON PRIVATE SCHOOL CONTRACT
Posted on

 

AiP has boosted its private sector portfolio by securing the contract for London International Community School (ICS), impressing with its freshly cooked food offering and experience of meal delivery across different sites

 

Formerly run by a small local operator, ICS’ new French owners looked to AiP to improve catering standards to meet the expectations of the international children aged 3-18 years who attend the school and their discerning parents. A further challenge was distribution of meals across three sites when only two of the sites have kitchens as well as factoring in London traffic.  The school now has a branded meals delivery van and that all important central London parking permit!

 

AiP is now offering fresh, healthy and exciting menus for the main school throughout its 36-week year. This includes a light fruit-based snack for morning break and a two-choice lunch menu with a focus on nutritional content that also reflects global cuisines and flavours. AiP is also providing a mix of hot and packed lunches for the 250 students from across the world who attend the school’s successful English Language summer school.

As part of its continuing expansion in London and the South East, AiP has secured substantial contracts at Wanstead High School and Ilford County High and in London at Henry Fawcett Primary School in the Oval.
Awarded following a tough competitive tender process, students aged 11-18 years at Wanstead High School are now enjoying wholesome, freshly prepared food reflecting high street concepts and trends, adapted to give healthy and exciting food choices. The new-look food and environment at the school have resulted in a 20% increase in sales.
Wanstead High School’s catering team was supported and trained by the AiP Executive Chef Team, not only to ensure the delivery of new meal ideas, but to also ensure that the food offer met the School Food Plan and Silver Food for Life standards.
As well as offering new food concepts, the dining environment has also been given an overhaul and a new 6th form café introduced. The food court area has been re-branded with AIP’s ‘Feed Me’ theme, helping to lift the décor and enhance the atmosphere within the servery area. A new layout and fridge displays have been installed to enable students to be served quickly and efficiently, so reducing queuing times.
Ilford County High catering also features AIP’s ‘Feed Me’ secondary school branding, completely upgrading the look of the servery and dining area. Multi deck refrigeration units have been added to improve and ease the flow of service, so helping to speed up waiting times.
Students at Ilford County High have responded well to the new food which emulates high street trends but with a health twist and AiP has seen sales increase in the first month alone by 16%. A new Sixth Form area and Grab and Go outlet will be opened for the new school year in September 2017 to give students additional outlets and choice.
A busy primary school in The Oval area of London, the AiP contract at Henry Fawcett Primary School commenced in April 2017.
AiP has engaged a new Chef Manager to raise the quality of the meals. Working to the Silver Food for Life Standards, a three-choice menu which includes a full daily salad bar, a three choice dessert option and homemade freshly baked bread everyday has been introduced.
