The Principals team were at EduKent EXPO and Conference last week to unveil the new Principals brand identity. Assistant Customer Service Manager, William Barlow was able supported by Trevor Hand, Harbour & Jones Company Chef and newly appointed Principals Company Chef, Neil Price.
We also took advantage of this occasion to launch our ‘school food plan’ which highlights five key areas where food can really make a difference to schools. These objectives are the ultimate focus for Principals’ existing and potential clients and include how to increase uptake; continual innovation; creating a culture of food; understanding the balance between food and physical activity; and promoting CSR.
At EduKent, which took place on 9th November at the Kent Showground in Maidstone, Principals offered attendees the chance to sample its healthy school menu choices, highlighting the importance of using locally sourced produce in support of the community. We chose to focus our sample menu on in-season Kentish apples, sourced from local suppliers, to create dishes such as pulled ham hock served with apple chutney, sweet potato and cauliflower couscous and a selection of yoghurt based slaws.
Peter McKenna at Principals says: “We are incredibly excited to have unveiled Principals’ new branding at EduKent Expo and Conference 2016. It is one of the leading educational catering events of the year and to be able to be a part of it, not only to showcase our new brand identity, but also to highlight our school food plan moving forward has been incredible. This year Principals has entered a new chapter: we have launched our new brand, become part of the Harbour & Jones family and gained 56 new contracts. I am looking forward to seeing where 2017 will take us.
