The College has listened to your views and through numerous channels I.E Student Management Group and Vocal eyes and we are delighted to tell you we are now able to increase our vegan offerings. As well as the standard vegan options available our catering manager has put in place a new call to order system to minimise on waste. You simply request a vegan option to the catering staff and they will be able to prepare you a vegan meal. (as it will be cooked to order there will be a slight wait). 

There was also a request for more vegan snack and sweet options and we now have an additional vegan snack bar being sold across campus and Vegan Magnum Ice creams are also available.

We see this as a brilliant and positive start top improving our catering offerings and want to thank everyone for your comments and suggestions to make this happen.

A popular source of conversation on Vocal Eyes is Catering and the food options available, so today I sat down and caught up with Neil Baker to answer some of your queries and look back at the success over the past year.

So Neil, tell me about some of your highlights?

There are too many to mention as my team have worked so hard and everything we have done is to ensure the learners experience is the best.

  • Opened 2 new outlets

  • Held several themed events across all sites including Pancake day, hydration events, fresher’s fayre, pasta events, pizza days, Dydd Gwyl Dewi.,Chinese Day, healthy colleges week and porridge.

  • 4 week set timetable across all sites, which includes, healthy choice, traditional choices, vegetarian options, Jacket potatoes and a new improved salad bar.

  • Food standards inspection

  • Working to increase vegan options during next 3 months

  • More information available on what is in food and drinks including Vegan and Gluten options

  • Large TV screens displaying clearer information on what is coming up or being served.

  • All staff  have completed customer service training

Price of Food?

Price of food is always hotly discussed; I think we are as competitive as we possibly can be and certainly are when benchmarking against other similar colleges and businesses locally.

With confectionary items our prices are the same as recommended retail price (RRP) , and we need to remember that we have also had the increase in sugar tax in the past 12 months.

What is your Vision?

My team and I are here for the learner, we want to inspire and enrich the learners experience within the College.

 

If you would like to speak  with Neil – please feel free to speak with Neil, he is always open for discussion and always willing to take on your Views.
