Doris Stedman, Group Operations Manager GS Plus Ltd said that “Marie understands that good food brings joy and fulfilment; it brings the connection to the environment and binds us socially and inclusively. Marie is an asset to GS Plus, to her school and the children she teaches and feeds every single day”.
The celebrations will be held on 15th November at City Hall, London, where the winners will be announced. It is a prestigious moment for the people who are serving thousands of healthy, nutritious meals across the country every day.
The judges will be looking for those with an outstanding commitment to providing meals that are higher welfare, sustainable and ethically source placing the Food for Life Served Here standards and going above and beyond to deliver that.
Last year, 130 industry professionals came together to mark the occasion at the Council House in Birmingham.
Ian Nutt, Associate Director Food for Life, said “2019 is a momentous year for Food for Life. It marks ten years since we launched the scheme and we now have 2 million meals per day being served by dedicated FFLSH catering teams. The public’s focus on sustainable, ethical and healthy food has never been greater and FFLSH-accredited caterers can be incredibly proud of their credentials. I can’t wait to celebrate their achievements in London in November.”
GS Plus Ltd holds Gold FFLSH in Greenwich serving 11,000 primary school meals daily. The company also holds four ‘Good Animal’ awards from Compassion in World Farming which recognises the commitment to higher farmed animal welfare standards in the supply chain.
