Chartwells partners with Anglesey County Council

17 Jun 2021
Chartwells, provider of catering and support services to schools in the UK, will partner with Anglesey County Council for five years to deliver nutritious meals to more than 9,500 pupils attending the 39 primary schools, five secondary schools and one special needs school on the island.

In September Chartwells will launch their new menus across Anglesey’s primary schools, with a focus on nutrition, taste and sustainability. The new menus will contain old favourites including bolognaise, fish & chips and a mid-week roast dinner.

Anglesey’s Education Portfolio Holder, Councillor Meirion Jones, said: “We are pleased to award the contract to Chartwells following a lengthy and robust competitive tender process.

“The evaluation panel was made up of Council officers, head teachers representatives and an independent catering consultant. This is an important new contract which will ensure that our pupils and staff continue to receive a healthy and wholesome school meal.”

The recipes have been created in collaboration with CBBC celebrity chef Allegra McEvedy MBE as well as Chartwells’ chefs and team of nutritionists. From 1 September 2021 the cost of a primary school meal will be reduced by 30p to £2.20. 

Charlie Brown, managing director of Chartwells, commented: “We welcome the Council’s decision to subsidise the school meal offer, enabling many more families to access school lunch.

“We work hard to provide value for money and will also be supporting schools with access to information on nutrition and healthy eating, through lessons and demonstrations with our culinary teams, as well as additional learning materials.”
