Keeping children safe is our biggest responsibility. And we take it very seriously.

From allergens to choking risks, we’ve got rigorous food safety procedures in place to ensure that we consistently provide safe meals to children and deliver peace of mind to nurseries and parents.
Holistic food safety
Food safety requirements have been identified, and effective procedures have been implemented across the entire business. This includes our premises and facilities, operations, training, maintenance and sanitation, personal hygiene, transportation, product information, consumer awareness and allergies.
Did you know?
There are 14 named allergens that must be declared in the UK by law. 50% of our dishes contain none of these allergens whatsoever, which means that all children can enjoy a wide variety of foods.
Kitchen process
Our kitchen procedures have been designed to avoid cross-contamination. We have separate fridges and refrigerated preparation rooms for different food types, our team wear special uniforms in different areas and use specific equipment to ensure that food does not come into contact with any contaminants.
Safe ingredients
By understanding the heightened risk of choking in the early years, we avoid inherently risky ingredients in our dishes, or cut them in a way to minimise the choking risk.
HACCP plan

Our HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) plan keeps our food safe from biological, chemical and physical food safety hazards. An independent review has verified our plan to guarantee the highest standards of food safety.

UKAS accredited lab
Our shelf life and microbiological testing is completed by a UKAS accredited laboratory to ensure absolute confidence in results.
SALSA accredited

We opt to be independently audited and accredited by SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval). The 105-point food safety inspection is recognised as exceeding the minimum food safety standards required by law. SALSA accreditation also ensures that our HACCP plan is accurate and that our holistic food safety procedures are effective and being continuously improved.

Did you know?
All of our dishes have detailed reports, which highlight every ingredient and allergen. This information is also clearly printed on the packaging for each dish.
Safe procurement
To ensure all our suppliers share our food safety values, we only source from suppliers who are SALSA or BRC accredited. However, we also have a robust qualification process in place for non-accredited suppliers, in case of emergencies.

Delivering consistency

We use refrigerated vans very similar to those used by supermarkets, only better! Our vans have been built to our own specifications to ensure safe delivery of our fresh meals and snacks. 

The temperature in our vans is continuously monitored, but we also take a temperature reading on delivery and leave this for the nursery to record in their temperature monitoring folder. This way, we can be certain that the cold chain has been maintained right up to the point that we stack it up in the nursery’s fridge.
