Thoughtful food sourcing
When it comes to sourcing the food for young bodies and minds, our responsibilities go beyond minimum standards, we also think about the wider impact our procurement decisions make on the wider world.Within in our menus we include a full range of produce encouraged by the following organisations.
Food for Life
The Food for Life Partnership brings schools, and their surrounding communities together around the core ethos of healthy, tasty and sustainable food. The programme is about more than just food on the plate; it considers where food comes from and how it’s grown, cooked and experienced.
London Food Link
As members of the London Food Link we are constantly trying to increase the amount of sustainable food available in London to make healthy affordable food available to all and to protect and celebrate London’s diverse food culture.
MSC Sustainable Seafood
Incito Catering always use the seafood bearing the MSC mark whenever possible. When you see seafood bearing the blue MSC ecolabel, you can be sure it comes from a certified sustainable fishery.
The standards were developed through consultation with the fishing industry, scientists, conservation groups, experts and stakeholders. These standards detail the requirements for fisheries to be certified as sustainable and for businesses to trade in certified seafood.
Freedom Food is the only UK assurance and food labelling scheme dedicated solely to improving farm animal welfare.
If there’s a Freedom Food logo on the packaging of the meat, fish and eggs you buy, you know the animals have been inspected to the RSPCA’s strict farm animal welfare standards.This is why Incito Catering have always strived to use produce protected by the Freedom Food mark.
The Soil Association is opposed to intensive farming and encourages local purchasing and public education on nutrition; as well the certification of organic food.
Good Egg Awards
As Good Egg award winners, we have been recognised that we use cage-free eggs or egg products. This means we are committed to the welfare of hens and will never knowingly use eggs laid by caged hens.
