Can you please tell me:
Is there a main contract? And if so which caterer provides the main contract? Are they, or have they been a part of the council? And what is the term of the contract?
Which cashless system they use in each school (also depicting those that don't use a cashless system at all)?
What % of fresh produce is used in the meals?
What frozen produce do they use?
Where their meat and veg are sourced and any associated certificates they have?
What price the school meals are retailed at? And what price the school pays?
I can advise you that the information you require is held by Essex County Council and not Brentwood Borough Council.
