The ‘Holiday Hunger Project’ in partnership with Savona

16th August 2019

The ‘Holiday Hunger Project’ has been running for 3 years, with Savona being involved in donations since the very start.

Recognising that families were regularly going to food banks and struggling particularly over the school holidays when free school meals are not an option, Sam at Growing Minds joined forces with Louise at Southwest families and the initiate to start the program began.

The project is rolled out over x3 schools once a week during the school holidays and runs solely because of dedicated hard-working volunteers, who take time out to cook up a storm and prepare fun activities for the children.

When Savona went along to visit the project, we were delighted to see many activities taking place including, bread making, face painting, crafts and sports as well as a delicious lunch being prepared for all. The kids were particularly excited to try the ‘Mickey Mouse’ style pizzas inspired by a recipe from Country Range.

Well done to all the wonderful volunteers, we hope to see the project to further grow and flourish in years to come.

Savona Foodservice achieves renowned BRC accreditation in Storage & Distribution

28th November 2018

Savona have been awarded BRC AA standard at both Oxford and Ilfracombe depots, an achievement that the company is extremely proud of as it moves to headline the future of the foodservice industry.

Establishing robust processes and then auditing them is far from new, which is why the BRC audit is so hard to get the highest score for. BRC auditors are experienced, well-practised and well trained, and subsequently know when it is just the appearance of quality they are looking at. Those organisations do not receive the AA standard.

“AA standard isn’t just another accreditation,” commented Mike Morgan, Director and General Manager at the Oxford depot, “it is an external recognition of the investment that we have made to achieve the highest possible quality assurances.”

Receiving BRC AA at both depots offers assurance and confidence to both existing and future customers. “We’ve always known that our company is built on quality,” commented Kelly Williams, Sales & Marketing Director, “and accreditation at the highest levels simply gives us third party verification and allows us to share this with prospective customers.”

Kelly and her sales team have certainly been sharing this quality ethos and the BRC audit news recently, achieving new annual contract revenues, something she attributes in part to being able to reassure multi-site catering organisations of consistent quality delivery.

BRC AA standard is a challenge to achieve – keeping it is more challenging still, which is why the internal audit team are continuing to monitor and advise to make sure that processes stay in control and data collection remains accurate.

With Online Ordering now in the customer pilot stage, rumours of geographical expansion and new staff being added to sales and operations teams, it is likely that there is going to be much more news from Savona Foodservice in the near future.
