The Right Ingredients

We are always focused on our customer experience. We pride ourselves on the friendliness and efficiency of our staff and we work hard to gather and react to clients’ feedback.

Here are some nice things that our clients, staff, parents and students have to say about working with us and the service we provide:


“Thank you very much for sending through the menu and meeting me to discuss our requirements. I have astounded by how much my kids love the meals they get at their primary school.  In particular, they love the chicken pie and the homemade cookies. There is also a concerted effort to ensure that they eat healthy with clever initiatives to get them to try new foods.  Recently my son was diagnosed with a digestive disorder and HCL have been excellent at accommodating his new dietary requirements. Thank you very much. I have a happy little boy again.”

Parent of Primary School Student


“I would like to convey my sincere thanks to Herts Catering for the excellent taster session you provided for our Reception parents/carers at the evening induction meeting. Staff had clearly worked hard to ensure that the session was well planned and, from a school perspective, it seemed to run with an impressive level of efficiency. Parents/carers commented on how friendly and knowledgeable the catering staff were, as well as how delicious the food tasted!

It really could not have created a better start to the meeting and I have no doubt that they will all want their child to have a school meal in September. Please pass on my thanks to all staff involved. Their professionalism and enthusiasm was much appreciated.”



“We have been using HCL Catering for our school lunches for the past term and the difference has been incredible! The food, the service, the quality is all above and beyond what we expected.”
Hertfordshire School


“I really like the menu choices and how they are different every day of the week. It makes my school lunch times more exciting and I always finish all my food!”
Primary School Pupil


“My child has never loved their food so much and it has encouraged them to explore new tastes and cuisines from across the world. The school meals are not only great value for money, but I know that they are healthy and of the highest quality too.
Parent of Secondary School Student


“I have just sent my information over to join your parent panel. As a nutritional therapist who specialises in children’s health, a mum of 2 children at primary school in Hertfordshire and a parent governor, I am very interested in school food.

My older daughter enjoys being able to choose each day whether she will have school dinners or packed lunch depending on what is on offer – I think this is a fantastic service. I am also really pleased that the food is sourced locally.”
