Clece continues support for healthy, safe and sustainable food
For the 1st Week Against Food Waste, Clece joined the event “Food Waste in School Canteens in Castille and Leon”. This took place on 28th September in Valladolid and was organised by the Education Department in collaboration with AECOC, the Spanish Commercial Coding Association. The initiative aimed to raise awareness among children of the large amount of excess food generated by school canteens.
Clece formed part of the initiative as it is one of the companies awarded a contract for school canteen services in Castille and Leon, managing some 62 School Canteens in Salamanca. Silvia Sanz and María Martínez from Clece’s Department of Food Safety and Nutrition helped to explain to the children the importance of “closing the circle” of food waste in school canteens. They did this by communicating the concept of “clever cooking” using various practical and very simple examples of dishes that can be converted into others, without the need to throw out the leftovers from cooking and creating new dishes, whilst always maintaining basic food safety rules.
The day ended with a fun workshop that captured both the adults’ and children’s attention through combining creativity and a healthy diet.
