Food Provenance

St Helens Council School Meals Catering Service uses seasonal British produce in our school menus.


We use British Red Tractor and British Farm assured meat. Red Tractor is a food assurance scheme that looks at production standards on safety, hygiene, animal welfare and food production. Our butcher, James Burrows Ltd, based in Ashton-under-Lyne, sources our British Red Tractor meat. Meat provided by our frozen food supplier Hopwells is also certified as Red Tractor assured from Great Britain.


All fish served on our menus is certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and none are on the Marine Conservation Societies ‘fish to avoid’ list.


All our eggs are free range, sourced from RW Elliot & Co of Driffield, East Yorkshire.

Fruit and Vegetables

Our fruit and vegetables are, when possible, in season and provided by Ralph Livesey of Preston. These products are sourced from farms in Lancashire where possible.

All of our menus conform to all the new standards issued by the government as a means to improve children’s diets. The school meals service in St Helens works very closely with all schools and other partners, in encouraging children to eat healthily.
