Cucina Restaurants awarded Vegetarian Society approved status for second consecutive year

Vegetarian Society Approved trademark underlines school caterer’s commitment to excellence

For the second successive year, products and dishes of artisan school catering company Cucina Restaurants have been licensed to carry the Vegetarian Society Approved trademark.

This accreditation gives continuing assurance to students and staff that all vegetarian dishes served in its restaurants are of the highest quality, free from animal fats and containing no GMOs.

The innovative catering company, recently awarded The Soil Association’s Gold Catering Mark for highest standards of food quality and provenance, works with partner schools to develop allotments and gardens to grow fresh produce for school kitchens.

Vanessa Brown, Head of Business and Catering Services at the Vegetarian Society said:

“It’s great to have a school catering company showing this level of commitment to its vegetarian customers. Having its vegetarian dishes licensed to carry the Vegetarian Society Approved trademark gives reassurance to both parents and children. With three in ten people in Britain saying they have reduced the amount of meat they eat in the past twelve months it also makes good business sense too.”

Cucina’s Director of Food, Sam Davies, said:

“This award recognises our commitment to providing food of the very highest quality and we are delighted to be receiving it for a second consecutive year. Providing our customers with the widest possible range of daily options is a really important part of our quest to make school food the very best it can be. 

“We consider our vegetarian choices to be a central part of our food offering, which is why we actively plan our vegetarian menus with all of our customers in mind, not just those who are vegetarians.”
