Statement from Shire Services
Shire Services takes the importance of the traceability and content of the food it procures for its services very seriously. To this end our customers can be assured that all meat purchased in the production of our meals is of UK origin, and prepared for use under Farm Assured standards.
Our suppliers are visited annually, where documentation of traceability is inspected. All distributers conform to the British Retail Consortium trading and accreditation standards.
As a trading department of Shropshire Council , Shire Services uses suppliers and prepares its food under the Soil Association Food for Life guidelines which currently achieves the Bronze standard for all its schools.Bill Campbell
