Testimonials from our education customers
Sarah Nugent, Quality Assurance Manager at TCS Education Catering Ltd
"As we manage a number of primary school contracts, we order a wide range of goods from Thomas Ridley and get all of our ambient and frozen foods through them. Lots of their products are more cost-effective while the quality is really good.
The recycling options Thomas Ridley provides are also fantastic for schools, where waste storage is limited and the school may not have this recycling facility otherwise. We use the cardboard pick up and the waste oil pick up service and as we have the ISO14001:2015 accreditation, recycling is a big part of this - so having this extra service through Thomas Ridley is really, really helpful!
We also get a small payback through the oil recycling, which is great."
I’d say the best thing about Thomas Ridley is ...
That they are a smaller company and more caring than others when it comes to making sure that we have what we need.
Any queries or issues are always dealt with very promptly and we’re very happy with the products and support that we receive from the team. We have a great relationship with our rep and always receive a really personal service, which makes them stand out from other companies we’ve used in the past.
