Local Authority

Local authority catering managers continue to face increasing budget cuts while being expected to meet nutritional standards. Saffron helps authorities to serve healthy, personalised meals, while providing an efficient and compliant service.


We recognise the different challenges of school and university catering. School caterers need to produce meals that meet school food standards. Whereas university caterers face more commercial challenges, with a focus on improving customer service and meeting demand for healthier menu options. Saffron helps schools and universities ensure their catering operation is efficient and compliant.

Health and Care

Healthcare catering operates seven days a week, 365 days a year, delivering a vital element of a patient’s recovery. Saffron supports customers across NHS Trusts, private hospitals, care homes and day centres with paperless ordering and detailed analytics.


Saffron is widely used by Contract Caterers and Facilities Managers to increase the efficiency of catering operations and drive profitability. With the logistical challenges faced with large multi-site companies, Saffron provides accurate, real-time performance reporting of units spread geographically across the country or globally.

Hospitality and Leisure

Restaurant chains, pub groups, quick service and holiday resorts have varied offerings, scale and customer base. Saffron helps retail food service businesses overcome common challenges: maximising profit, communicating allergen information and giving customers the best hospitality experience.

The speed and accuracy of access we have to data is one of the key benefits of Saffron."
