Tasmania has fantastic local produce available and it has a valuable place on school canteen menus. We are trying to work more with local producers and suppliers to explore ways to improve the quality of food in the canteen. To view what fruit and vegetables are in season look at the Eat Well Tasmania website it is a great resource.
School Food Matters offer food companies and suppliers a Corporate Membership which gives them free listing in our Product Guide with any of their products assessed as Green and Amber according to the National School Canteen Guidelines.
To strengthen our partnership with the food industry School Food Matters invites all major food companies who produce products for the school canteen market to become a corporate member and have their products assessed to be a part the Product Guide.
Inside the Product Guide you’ll find:
– GREEN and AMBER products that meet the National Healthy School Canteen Guidelines
– Contact information for each company to make ordering products easy
It’s important to note that the products listed in the Product Guide are only those that were supplied by the companies who expressed interest in participating. The Product Guide is therefore not a complete list and not all products which meet the nutrient criteria are included. If you come across a product that is not included in the Guide, check it against the National Healthy School Canteen nutrient criteria found in the SmartFood Guide or check with your School Food Matters Project Officer.
