Customer Testimonials

  • the bourne academy logo

    Panache South handled our catering tender, they met all deadlines, were very professional and efficient, and made the whole process go very smoothly. I would definitely recommend them and consider them for future tender work. In fact, we were so impressed by them, that they now complete our ongoing food safety audits.

    We have worked with Panache and Jon Rook for many years and have found them to be highly professional and competent. They’ve worked with us on food safety, allergens, and other general business projects and have always gone that extra mile.

    I can confirm I was very happy with Panache’s work and particularly with Jon’s professionalism and knowledge. They met all the required deadlines and produced a very comprehensive report, which has been a valuable tool. I was particularly impressed by Jon’s very sympathetic approach to the service he was carrying out the report on.

  • wolfson college cambridge logo

    We have worked with Panache on a number of projects over recent years and I have found them to be consistently professional and knowledgeable. Panache assisted Wolfson College with the creation of our Food Safety Policy and our food labelling in relation to the legislation for Allergens. I would not hesitate to recommend Panache to advise on matters, of health and hygiene, for any catering organisation.

    Panache assisted Bishop Thomas Grant School with our catering services tender process which was completed in the timeframe required. I have worked with Panache on and off since 2005 and have always found them to be professional and helpful and Niccola will always make herself available to provide information when requested. Niccola has continued working with us in a monitoring capacity ensuring the contractor appointed is meeting their KPIs.

    We retendered our Catering Services Contract for Derby College through the CPC Framework with the assistance of Panache, who were efficient and thorough throughout the process. Following a successful appointment I would not hesitate to recommend their services. As an independent consultant, Niccola is able to provide an unbiased overview of the market through her extensive experience and understanding of the employers requirements in relation to their specific sector of operation within education which proved invaluable when comparing offers.
