Canteen Menus and Price Lists
Great tasting food that your children will love
Aspens is the company chosen by NUAST to provide the meal service to our students. We specialise in providing catering to academies and colleges across the country.
The food pupils eat at academy plays an important role in their well-being, and eating a well-balanced diet will not only maintain and improve their health, but will also set them on the right track for later life. We understand this and that’s why we are passionate about serving fresh, high quality and locally-sourced food that is cooked in our kitchen.
At Aspens, we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously. All of our dishes are prepared everyday using quality, fresh and seasonal ingredients that are responsibly sourced.
As well as ensuring the food on the plate is healthy, we want our customers to understand the importance of eating the right foods and help them with their food and nutrition journey. Don’t think that your child can’t enjoy our great food if they have a special diet—they are an important part of our catering service. We can provide food if they have an intolerance, an allergy, or require an alternative choice due to religious beliefs.
Legislation requires caterers to provide allergen information on food sold that is served ‘unpackaged’. Aspens already cater for lots of children with allergies and we regularly check the information from suppliers to see if there have been any ingredient changes. It is still important that our customers talk to us so we can work together and continue to provide meals that are safe for them to eat.
