Pelican is proud to support the ISBA Annual Conference taking place at Manchester Central Convention Complex on the 21-22 May.
The conference attracts over 400 bursars and senior management staff from independent schools.
Challenges schools face
Complying with food legislation, allergen legislation, managing suppliers, monitoring price fluctuations and carrying out back-office admin tasks is proving to be a huge drain on internal resources.
Parents now expect school meals to meet not only dietary and religious requirements, but they also want caterers to use sustainable and ethical food and ingredients.
