As we move further into the digital age, tools are evolving to make foodservice and menu-planning easier and safer. These systems not only revolutionise restaurant kitchens, but also those in schools, care homes and other food-service providers.
A food-management system allows you to take full control of your kitchen processes removing the risk of food allergic children eating mislabelled food, streamlining daily tasks and providing a safer more compliant kitchen environment.
So what could a food-management system do for your school, your pupils and your staff?
Kafoodle for your school

Create consistency with a cloud-based recipe bank, giving you easy access to all of your recipes from home, the office, or the kitchen. Share them at an individual school level or across multiple sites with tailored user-access ensuring that the right people have the tools they need when they need them.
Track costs at ingredient, recipe or portion level – ensuring you stay within budget without compromising on the quality of the food you serve.
Record Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) alongside your recipes and method to show your EHO inspectors that your kitchens are safe and compliant.
Easily create daily and weekly menus with our drag and drop feature and display these to your teachers, pupils, parents and guardians through our consumer App and browser-based interfaces.
Stay safe and compliant by clearly displaying the 14 main food allergens allowing pupils with allergies to eat with confidence and clearly identify the safe dishes available to them.

Kafoodle for your students
“5-8% of children have a proven food allergy, with hospitalisations due to allergic reactions increasing by 700% since 1990” – Food.Gov
Empower your students and their parents to feel in control of the food they’re eating by giving them the information they need at their fingertips. Literally.
For young children, parents can view weekly menus and filter to suit their child’s needs. For older children, Kafoodle enables them to search not only for food inline with their dietary requirements but also by nutritional data empowering them to make informed decisions and work towards a more balanced diet.
With the Kafoodle App, your pupils can also take part in daily polls, surveys and quizzes to give you valuable intel for future menu development.
