The Food for Life Served Here mark can help you to find good food. It’s the Soil Association’s unique award which guarantees that what’s on the menu is freshly prepared, free from undesirable additives and better for animal welfare. Meals which have been awarded the Catering Mark are all free from controversial e-numbers such as aspartame, tartrazine and MSG. They do not contain artificial trans-fats or GM ingredients. When you see the Catering Mark, you can rest assured that all meat and dairy products come from farms which meet Red Tractor animal welfare standards. Many go even further and serve organic meat, dairy products or eggs, which means guarantees a truly free-range life where animals have plenty of space and fresh air to thrive and grow. For restaurants and caterers, the Food for Life Catering Mark is a unique way to gain the recognition for the extra effort put into serving great food. The bronze, silver and gold awards recognise best practice and offer you a step-by-step approach towards using more fresh, seasonal, local and organic ingredients.
