Autograph Food praised for helping clients increase vegetable consumption

Interserve Group Limited’s Autograph catering business praised for helping clients increase vegetable consumption

Autograph Food, our catering business, has been praised for helping clients increase vegetable consumption

We've been praised by a national report published by the Food Foundation for increasing the quantity of vegetables served on key company contracts.

Autograph Food, which is part of Interserve Group Limited, delivers best-in-class catering services to clients including businesses, the Armed Forces, schools and hospitals across the UK.

Autograph Food pledged to increase the quantity of vegetable portions provided in school meals supplied by the company as part of a commitment it made to the Food Foundation’s Peas Please campaign. The Food Foundation is an independent organisation dedicated to improving access to a healthy diet, and launched Peas Please three-years-ago to increase vegetable availability and consumption in the UK.

Autograph Food has not only met the target of including at least two portions of vegetables per meal supplied to Primary schools – it has exceeded it. As a result, Autograph Food is now one of only 15 companies nationwide to have met the “pledge” that the company committed to three-years-ago.

Hannah Baugh, Autograph Food’s Nutritionist, said: “With adults eating only three and a half portions of fruit and vegetables a day; and children just two portions daily, it’s vital we do our bit to get vegetables into the meals children eat. We were therefore delighted to endorse Peas Please because we recognise the excellent work undertaken by the Food Foundation.

“Food preferences and eating habits are created during childhood, so the more we can get children to eat and enjoy vegetables in their school meals, the more it can help to instill healthy eating habits.”

Thomas Garlick, Autograph Food’s Head of Procurement, added: “We are committed to sourcing the most nutritional ingredients because we know the wealth of benefits to be gained from improving children’s diets. We constantly develop our menus to provide the best each season has to offer, and we work closely with our clients to ensure we have a supply chain in place that is aligned to exceeding our customers’ expectations.”
