How can McCain help you?


We work closely with schools around the country and understand the challenges faced by busy caterers. We understand the need for go-to school food solutions that save time, money and resource but that also consistently deliver high standard school meals that comply with the School Food Plan. That's why we produce great tasting food solutions with school caterers in mind.

The McCain ‘Chef Solutions' range is perfect for school food providers who are faced with providing tasty and nutritious food, served in a quick time frame and that will be loved by pupils too. Many of our products in this range, called 'Simply' have not been prepared with oil and are naturally low in fat and salt but still have a full potato taste you would expect from McCain. These 'Simply' products offers the ultimate flexibility, and can be used as an accompaniment or an ingredient for everything from cakes to Shepherd’s pie. Let us help you serve products that will nourish pupils, enabling them to learn productively and will keep them coming back for more. 

The majority of products recommended for schools can be stored frozen or chilled to maximise storage space and, when cooking from chilled, oven times are reduced helping to save time  As further evidence of our commitment to schools, McCain Foods is now a Food for Life Accredited Supplier which is great news for school caterers who are committed to meeting Food For Life standards, and are looking for ways to save time and waste whilst providing consistent quality across the year.*

*The Food For Life Catering Mark provides an independent endorsement that food providers are taking steps to improve the food they serve, using fresh ingredients which are free from trans fats, harmful additives and GM, and better for animal welfare.
