Who we are and why it matters

We are one of the very few — if not the only — privately owned education catering company in the UK, catering exclusively for primary, secondary and academy school meals catering. We are not (and never will be) owned by venture capitalists, big business or the banks – this is our business, owned and operated by those of us that work day to day in the service of our clients and customers – the students we serve, from the first day in reception class in primary to our college students leaving education to their first full-time jobs – some of them with us as apprentices within Aspens!

This unique focus allows us to concentrate on people above profit – no big bank shareholders, no selling the company on, no bureaucracy – we think looking after our clients and customers is the reason for our continued success. Unsurprisingly, our partners within schools, academies and colleges across the UK share our vision.

Summerhill Academy’s Food Hygiene rating: 5 stars
