We are delighted to be joining "LACA - the school food people" as an Associate Member.
Established in 1990, LACA is the leading professional body representing over 3300 different organisations and individuals, all dedicated to ensuring that our children get the benefits from a healthy nutritious school lunch. Members range from Local Authority providers, contract caterers, kitchen and school staff, through to food and catering equipment suppliers and manufacturers. 
LACA work to ensure that the investment in school meals is matched by the highest standards of professionalism in education catering. As the lead association, they work with Government and other relevant organisations on all aspects of school food and in delivering healthy eating policies, as well as equipping school catering providers with the necessary skills, knowledge and support to enable them to meet the changing demands in the industry.
As an Associate Member, we recognise the continuing need for all involved to work together to meet the mandatory food standard that apply to the school catering service. At Happerley, we are passionate about truth and transparency, and believe everyone should know the journey of their food. We are thrilled to be working with Coop Childcare on their ‘Feed Me Truth’ campaign and look forward to sharing our work with members in due course. 
We really look forward to working with LACA and its members to learn and share best practice and make valuable contributions to the health of future generations.
