A specialist  supplier to the education sector, we know that consistently providing healthy, nutritious food can be challenging. However, getting it right makes a real difference to your students’ educational development, health and well-being. And with access to over 1,000 different types of fruit and vegetable at any one time, compiling delicious, nutritious and seasonal menus to suit your clients specific needs  is made that much easier by using Reynolds.

We have considerable experience supplying schools, colleges and universities with fresh produce, dairy and cheeses, and Reynolds is able to go that extra mile by providing more than just great tasting produce. Our Technical and Food Development teams are in place to offer support with menu development and analysis, including nutritional and allergen information. Information regarding provenance is no problem as all produce is fully traceable. We can even provide product training and workshops to help your organisation achieve its Bronze, Silver or Gold Food for Life award.

Food safety is critical for our customers and something we take very seriously. Reynolds has been British Retail Consortium certified at the highest level since it began in 1998. This means that all Reynolds’ suppliers are audited and meet the most stringent standards. All UK suppliers comply with the appropriate farm assurance standards, meaning that all fresh produce is produced safely and fully traceable, right back to the farm in which it is grown on.

Our commitment to a fully traceable supply chain also means that Reynolds can provide information regarding food provenance, helping our customers to convey where the food they are serving comes from.

Having been a greengrocer since 1945, we also know a thing or two about seasonality and can assist you in placing seasonal British produce at the heart of your menus. As well as enabling you to offer greater variety for your students, using ingredients when they are in season will ensure your food tastes even better. Why not view a selection of our exciting seasonal recipes?

We understand that budgets are incredibly important to any caterer. Using seasonal produce is one way to help reduce food costs, but at Reynolds we go one step further. We offer customers the opportunity to fix their prices for six months at a time. This means that, particularly for those running a regular menu cycle, dishes can be accurately costed way in advance, with food margins protected.


tuco-logoReynolds is also a supplier to The University Caterers Organisation (TUCO), the membership organisation representing in-house caterers operating within the higher and further education sectors.

Reynolds really is much more than just a greengrocer, but don’t just take our word for it…
