Saffron helps Lancashire County Council transform school catering operations

24th June 2021

Lancashire County Council improves sustainability and visibility across nearly 550 sites with Civica Saffron

Responsible for the delivery of approximately 65,000 meals per day across 492 primary schools, 29 secondary schools and 23 care facilities, Lancashire County Council runs a significant cost sector catering service which puts the health and wellbeing of children and young people first.

Introducing Civica Saffron catering management software has helped the council to identify and address inefficiencies, boost productivity and increase transparency in school kitchens.

Saffron gives us the consistency we need around food production, cost allowances, ingredients and allergens, while the real-time reporting functionality gives us greater visibility of uptake.”

Nigel Craine, Head of Schools & Residential Care Catering, Lancashire County Council
