Chartwells – Specialists in providing catering and hospitality services in education
We operate high school cafes and university food-halls. We provide live-in university/boarding school meals and special event catering. Our goal is to provide fun, nutritious dining solutions tailored to each cohort. That will help support academic achievement at the highest levels. Challenging the concept of ‘institutional’ food, Chartwells brings the High Street food experience to education. But we also know that nutrition is just as important as the experience. For example, for our young population in schools, to optimise performance, it is essential to ensure the right types and amounts of fresh and nutrient dense foods are offered to students on a daily basis. We must be conscious of the provision of sufficient foods to meet the higher energy needs imposed by growth and development in this demographic. But it doesn’t stop at food. We also specialise in expertly delivered facilities services such as cleaning housekeeping and waste management etc. Offering personalised solutions with a focus on adding value and building a true partnership with clients. We are a true partner in catering and hospitality services in education.
Ministry of Education – School Lunches Program
Compass Group New Zealand is proud to be providing nutritious meals every day to the 50 schools we serve in the Healthy School Lunches Program. Since we commenced in January 2021, we have served over a million meals to hungry students around the country! Each meal is tailored to the 12,000 students we serve daily to meet their dietary requirements, taste preferences and portion size based on feedback we have received direct form the students, parents and teachers. In conjunction with this, all our meals also meet the specifications set from the Ministry of Education. We have created a team of specialists including dieticians, chefs and logistical managers, and opened 3 production kitchens to support this program nationwide. In addition to this we have also implemented a sustainable waste management system and an engaging education program to teach the students about healthy eating along the way. This is led by our Executive Chef Brett McGregor, NZ’s first MasterChef winner! Compass Group New Zealand is proud to support the future generations of New Zealand by providing them healthy and nutritious lunches for their sustained energy for learning throughout out their day.
