With years of industry experience, we understand what it takes to be a specialist caterer for schools, colleges, and universities. We work with catering facilities across the country in state and independent primary and secondary schools, academies, further education, sixth form and specialist colleges and universities. From our experience of supplying education facilities, we understand the demands of school kitchens and the daily challenges of offering tasty and nutritionally balanced school meals. Henceforth, through our work, we are committed to providing schools and educational establishments with an excellent range of food products in order to help caterers create imaginative, flexible and nutritious menus in line with the school food standards initiative.


JR Holland is passionate about enabling access to fresh, healthy food that tastes great. We believe that the right nutrients can affect an individual’s mood, behaviour, growth, and even their ability to concentrate. Therefore, encouraging a well-balanced diet for those in education is essential for now and for the future. This is why healthy eating is at the very heart of our approach to food.
