Is our catering external with the Food for Life Catering Mark? (Awards package with Catering Mark)
If your local authority or a private catering company manage your kitchen or deliver hot meals to you, your catering is external. Your caterers must have the Food for Life Catering Mark for you to complete your award. If this is you, select 'Awards Package with Catering Mark' from the dropdown list.

Is our catering in house? (Awards Package with in-house catering)
If you self-manage your catering service, employ your own team, create your own menus, and manage the ordering process, your catering is in-house. Select 'Awards Package with in-house catering' from the drop down list.

Still not sure?
Ask your administrator / business manager or give one of our team a call on 0117 314 5180.
