In July we had no solution for hot meal provision for September and our rural location and the fact that we had no on-site kitchen made us an unattractive proposition for outside caterers. Account Manager Phil at Pasta King immediately understood the challenges of a small school and the company were the first provider I had spoken to who were willing to discuss options that worked around our requirements. With plans agreed for a micro kitchen, knowing we could use Pasta King as our main meal provider meant we were able to make plans for the future. Pasta King has provided us with a prompt and reliable service and because their meals are easy to prepare, our lunchtime supervisors did not require any additional support.
Our school meals provision has been recognised nationally as a success story with Radio 4 and Henry Dimbleby visiting the school on 29th September. We are now being contacted by other schools seeking advice and have happily recommended Pasta King.Mrs Anne Nolan, Head Teacher,
Our school must be the smallest in the country with only 15 pupils currently on the roll and as such we have had a huge challenge when trying to find a company who would help us set up UIFSM. That is where Pasta King came to our rescue. Pasta King came in to see the obstacles we faced – very little space and a limited number of staff and gave us advice about equipment ensuring that everything was ready for the start of the new term.
Now in our third week the children cannot wait until lunchtime and love the food smells wafting through school each day. They have also tried foods they haven’t tried before and gone home to ask parents for more of the same.
We have been very impressed with the quality of products on offer and the training and on-going support has been exceptional; we would recommend Pasta King to others, whatever the size of their school.Mrs Jo Spriggs,
Our students really enjoy Pasta King food itself but also the concept of the pasta in a pot. The choice of sauces always goes down very well with the children – lots to choose from! As Catering Manager, I personally find Pasta King meals very easy to prepare and serve as do my staff. I would not hesitate in recommending Pasta king to anyone – we love it!Catering Manager,
Kids love it, they really enjoy trying new sauces and old favourites like Spicy Sausage and Meatballs are real winners. A good service all round!Catering Manager,
By using the full range of Pasta King products it has provided our catering teams with more time to provide a better service.Head of Service,

I love the pots and I love the different size speech bubbles on them – really unusual.Pupil,
