Catering for the ‘New Normal’

A Webinar hosted by MYA Consulting for the ISBA member schools.

If your school is an ISBA member and you are free for an hour at 11am on 21st January – please sign up on the ISBA website and join us. Don’t miss the chance to share the latest knowledge on dealing with the crisis in school catering. 

No-one can deny that these are challenging times, as we live through the third lockdown and yet another redirection for your school. In the Independent education sector, there are still examples of brilliantly managed responses, and other examples where the standard catering model has come under significant stress; and this applies to both in-house and outsourced operations. 

Carla McKenzie and Bev Lusty of MYA are independent catering consultants with decades of experience. They’re hosting this webinar for ISBA members, with the intention of sharing best practice in the industry. It’s all about ‘the art of the possible’.

  • The team, led by Carla McKenzie, were meticulous in every detail. They modelled the cleaning requirements to deliver the optimum solution for the facilities across EMEA, and really took time to understand the culture of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending MYA and its team – they are dedicated and innovative, and always go the extra mile.

  • Carla and her team have broad experience in the industry. Apart from being very supportive in inventing (new) concepts, they also make use of their many years of experience when implementing these concepts. Their ultimate goal is to let people enjoy honest and good food.

  • They are brave enough to challenge others in pursuit of the ultimate solution, whether it be behind the scenes with kitchen flow and catering management, or front-of-house service and design.

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.

  • During the negotiation process, Carla’s knowledge and expertise enabled our company to achieve a very strong commercial outcome, and some significant savings were yielded from the exercise.
