We work with a diverse base of clients in all areas such as education, hospitals, care homes and restaurants.

Our passion is designing meals that can be enjoyed in all settings regardless of facilities available. We exist to solve your problems!
All stand alone products such as meatballs, beef burgers, chicken fillets, fish fillets and sausages, can all be bought in under the 75% made from scratch requirement.
Proteins and sauces can be bought in under the 25% not made from scratch requirement.
For regen kitchens we can offer a one step solution of ready meals complete that meet all dietary requirements and Government targets for sat fats, sugar and salt, so although they may not be able to obtain Food For Life accreditation, they will know they are serving the best food possible.
For those kitchens with a small amount of facilities, we can offer proteins and sauces and they can simply add pasta/rice and similar, cutting down on preparation times and facilities required.
Special dietary requirements catered for in individual packs if required.
All dishes come in Halal versions, whether in multi or single portions.

Magnesium: The body uses this imprtant mineral to keep bones strong and the heart rhythm steady. It also supports the immune system and helps maintain muscle and nerve function.
Potassium: Potassium works with Sodium to control the body’s water balance, which helps maintain healthy blood pressure. In fact a diet that’s low in potassium and high in sodium appears to be a factor in high blood pressure. Potassium also helps with nuscle function and heart rhythm and, in later years, may reduce the risk of kidney stones and osteoporosis.
Zinc: More than 70 enzymes depend on zinc to perform their roles in digestion and metabolism and children who don’t get enough Zinc risk having stunted growth.
Iron: Iron is a nutrient that’s needed to make haemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying component of red blood cells, which circulate throughout the body to deliver oxygen to all it’s cells. Without enough iron, the body can’t make enough red blood cells and tissues and organs won’t get the oxygen they need. So it’s important for kids and teens to get enough iron in their dailyy diets.
Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 is also known as pyridoxine. It has several important functions, including allowing the body to nuse and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food helping to form haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen around the body.
