Last summer, a new call for tender for catering was launched and as a result, at the beginning of this year, a new contract was signed with Sodexo. This contract introduced many changes, which were based on the inputs received from parents and from students in the previous years.
- There was no increase of prices and for the ‘tartinists’ the service is now free of charge.
- For Secondary students, a wider offer of products was introduced (Bowl, Street, Pasta Roma), as well as a cheaper meal every day at 3.70 euro.
- In general, meals are prepared with less sugar, less fat, less salt and pepper, with only certain oils and only iodine salt. Local products, organic products and the use of honey as sweetener are privileged.
- This year, the number of supervisors in the canteen of Primary students more than doubled, compared to previous years. Also the number of Primary services was increased (5 instead of 4) in order for the children to eat in smaller groups, in a more calm and supervised environment.
Over the next few weeks you will find further information on our website in the format of a short paper detailing other pertinent changes introduced in the canteen this year.
