Get in touch

Rising food costs, wage increases, new legislation and wide-spread industry uncertainty are among the many challenges facing catering providers. 

Saffron catering management software helps you deliver nutritious, allergen aware and planet-smart food. We’re supporting customers across the public sector, education, health and care and foodservice industries to improve the efficiency of complex catering operations, through streamlining stock control, purchasing and menu engineering.

Our paperless kitchen management, cashless catering, e-payments and pre-order are a complete solution for public sector catering. Together they deliver peace of mind, help you be more productive and improve experience for those using your services. We can help you:

  • Safeguard services by delivering nutritious meals on budget by rapidly altering recipes and menus in response to changing ingredient prices and availability
  • Tightly manage costs by controlling what’s purchased centrally while engaging more easily with a wider range of suppliers
  • Power free school meal programmes using our data-driven technologies
  • Protect customer wellbeing and ease anxiety by better supporting those with allergies and medical conditions
  • Cater more sustainably by cutting food waste, tracking carbon and buying local to reduce food miles.
