Henry Norman Editor


elcome to the latest EDUcatering magazine! Last month, you may recall, we brought you a comprehensive preview of the upcoming and all-important LACA Conference, which is set to take place in Birmingham from 11th


to 13th Annual institution July. This annual


institution is simply too big to be contained in one issue, however, so this month we showcase all the runners and riders who will be jockeying for position at the School Catering Exhibition which will be running alongside the event (page 21). Do your homework now and it will undoubtedly help you to make the most of your precious time spent at the event.


On the big interview front, Jane Renton has been speaking to Ronan Harte, the managing director of independent school caterer Holroyd Howe. Turn to page 14 to fi nd out how his “remarkably uncorporate” approach has helped to increase the Westbury Street Holdings owned company’s sales by 16% to an impressive £32m a year. On page 16, Jane has also been talking to Nicola


Freeman, purchasing manager for Pabulum, about the company’s increasing efforts to buy British – a project she has been working on for fi ve years now. Keeping things close to home, Pat Fellows has been out and about recently visiting three primary schools in Anglesey. Turn to page 66 for her refl ections on her time spent in North Wales. Sticking with the land of song, on page 56 we fi nd out how schools in Caerphilly have been benefi ting from a link-up with Birds Eye Foodservice, while Arnold Fewell looks further afi eld to fi nd inspiration for the latest edition of his World Food Series (page 40). This month he asks if there is more to North American cuisine than pizzas and pretzels. Elsewhere, the Digital Blonde looks at traditional marketing


techniques versus digital marketing on page 59, and we still have room for features on EPoS and cashless catering (page 47) and desserts (page 53). That just leaves me to say have a great time at the LACA Conference and we’ll be back next month to help you start gearing up for the new school year. Enjoy!
