Catering organization

Menus

• Menus are elaborated by LFIB’s Sodexo manager, an ex-Chef, and by a certified nutritionist. Every month, they are studied and validated by the Canteen/Catering Commission.

• They are adapted to children’s nutritional needs, and are tasty, varied and balanced.

• In order to comply with food safety policy, meals are composed and cooked on-site.
• In a constant concern for traceability, the products used are mainly issued from Thailand. The canteen commission is regularly informed about the canteen suppliers and the standards they follow.
• Everyday, a balanced, attractive and identifiable menu (green smiley) is proposed to pupils. These suggestions are presented together with nutritional guidance, which are displayed on a screen within the large catering room.

• Special menus are proposed, once a month in average, on important Thai and French celebrations (Loy Kratong, Halloween, Christmas…) and on special events inside the establishment (exits, picnics).
