We have a single-minded commitment to building strong bodies and sharp minds.

Built around a carefully developed Food and Nutrition Philosophy, we offer a diverse, balanced menu, full of fresh ingredients, mouth-watering recipes, and wholesome snacks.

Our chefs prepare foods from fresh ingredients, avoiding artificial colours, flavourants, M.S.G. (monosodium glutamate), preservatives and trans fats.  Chefs also buy only quality-graded meats and make every effort to use seasonal fruits and vegetables grown by local farmers.

In total, Chartwells serves over 14 300 quality meals a day at over 40 institutions of learning in Southern Africa. At Chartwells, we take our responsibility of catering for today’s children and young adults seriously.

We know it’s not just the food on the plate that is important but a real understanding of health and nutrition too. Our simple set of commitments - Eat, Learn, Live - helps us to educate young people about how to have a happy, safe and healthy lifestyle and contributing to a sustainable world.

Nourishing students is not only our business; it is our commitment to the communities in which we serve. Chartwells is a diverse family of dedicated food and nutrition specialists serving the academic community. We deliver customised solutions that benefit our partners through innovative programmes.

When it comes to innovative nutritional programmes, no one serves students better than Chartwells. As the key role-player in school dining services, Chartwells has the experience and insight to provide carefully planned and well-balanced meals that appeal to student appetites.

Nourishing your students is more than our business. Whether you call it a mission, a philosophy, or a passion, it’s hard to sum up in a word. So we used three. As a single-minded commitment to building strong bodies and sharp minds, Eat. Learn. Live.
