A Partridge Green-based lunch company which supplies nearly 3,000 school lunches a week are today (October 7) celebrating exactly five years in business.
The Easy Lunch Company started supplying one school with 23 dinners in 2008 and are now catering for 15 primary schools, an old people’s home and day care nurseries across West Sussex.
Managing director, Emma Treasure, explained: “I feel really pleased that’s it’s come from nothing to this many school and creating a business so I’m jolly pleased.
“I’m quite proud doing it and for the team I’ve got doing it all for me as well, it’s no mean feat.”
Emma visited Ashurst Primary School to serve up their usual hot lunches to the pupils with meals ranging from sausage rolls to the vegetarian option of pasta bake all served with a mixture of vegetables.
“We like to think we serve the freshest meals, freshly sourced and everything is homemade,” continued Emma.
“This week we’ll be doing 2,700 lunches so just in five years we’ve really grown and hopefully this time next year, when the free school meal initiative comes in, we will be double that and grow even more.”
