Food for Life Catering Mark Standards Committee members
An opportunity to support the development of best practice standards for food service
The Food for Life Catering Mark recognises best practice amongst caterers and the food service industry. Over 750,000 Catering Mark accredited meals are now served each day. The bronze, silver and gold standards encourage and reward the use of fresh, healthy, local and organic food.
As the scheme continues to grow, we are keen to ensure the Catering Mark Standards Committee reflects the diversity of organisations serving Catering Mark menus. Our Catering Mark Standards are pioneering and lead the way in improving the food served by caterers. They are supported by robust governance from the Standards Board.
We are now recruiting for new members of the Catering Mark Standards Committee. Successful candidates will have at least one of the following attributes:
- Considerable experience of the commercial catering industry, ideally in more than one sector;
- A strong interest in the use of organic, local, fresh and healthy ingredients in the food service industry;
- An ability to articulate the consumer or citizen perspective from an informed position;
- Experience of working in committees to achieve consensus.
The Catering Mark Standards Committee meets two to three times a year, usually in Bristol, London or Birmingham. This is a voluntary position with reasonable travel and subsistence expenses reimbursed.
