Sodexo has achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification across multiple school contracts in England and Wales, as it launches a new sustainable fish menu at a school in Wilsthire.

80 pupils from Southbroom Junior School in Devizes, Wiltshire, enjoyed MSC certified lunchtime fish dishes including a salmon starter and breaded pollack, all featuring the blue fish-tick logo of the MSC As well as enjoying a lunch featuring eco-labelled fish, the launch included a visit from the MSC's mascot, Murdock the Fisherman's Cat. Pupils also learnt all about why the world is in danger of running out of fish at a special afternoon assembly. Teachers were presented with Fish & Kids packs, part of a project launched by the MSC to teach children about the problems of over fishing. Mr D Jopling, head teacher at Southbroom Junior School said: "It is so important that children learn where the food they eat comes from and how it reaches their plate. I hope it will encourage them to be kind to the environment and become responsible young adults." Jane Bristow, managing director, Sodexo Education, said: "Serving healthy food is important but at Sodexo we work hard to educate the next generation of consumers about the food they eat. MSC certification will visibly highlight our commitment to supporting healthy marine life and stress to pupils, parents and teachers the importance of choosing environmentally friendly options."
