Health FoodsWith public awareness of the damage of excess salt, sugar and fat in food increasing, we launched a major reformulation programme in 2016. We took a fresh look at our own brand ranges to find ways of reducing levels of salt, sugar and saturated fat, without compromising on taste, texture or quality. We have seen huge success from this ongoing initiative, and we want to pass our products and experience on to our franchisees, to benefit from what we have learned.
As part of the franchise agreement, ongoing training is given to all staff – from shop floor to management – across all of our brands and sub-brands.We will teach you and your team how to make the perfect pizza, cup of coffee, loaf of bread or Green Kitchen meal. You can be certain that our training will always be up-to-date, to keep up with the latest in food innovation.
