The SanusVita 3 R's approach is simple and effective.



Like anything, once you understand it, it's simple, food and catering is no different. It is a multifaceted discipline that should be fully reviewed operationally and financially to identify what and where improvements can be made - a health check.



A detailed report is provided following any catering review that will include a full operational audit detailing; financial bench marking, safeguarding, allergen processes, labour ratios, culinary skills assessment, procurement, food style and presentation. 



We care that our recommendations fit into the ethos of the school. They will provide solutions that improve operational process and performance, standard of catering, dining & boarding experiences, drive financial efficiency and ensure complete transparency. 




Safeguarding pupils is of paramount importance.  We audit your Catering Partner's safeguarding processes.
