Meet the supporters of the Public Sector Catering Expo

The Public Sector Catering Expo 2019 is supported by five key industry associations including LACA (the school food people), TUCO (The University Caterers Organisation), HCA (Hospital Caterers Association), PACE (Professional Association for Catering Education) and NACC (National Association of Care Catering).

The PSC Expo will be taking place 19-20 November at the Telford International Centre. Within the public sector almost three billion meals are served every year to people in schools, hospitals, universities, prisons, care homes and the Armed Forces.

The Expo will include a central exhibition area where visitors can meet with the associations and find out more about the work they do across the industry and the benefits of working with them.

LACA represents 3,300 organisations and individuals that ensure children benefit from a healthy and nutritious school lunch. Over three million lunches are served in 22,000 schools every day in England and Wales.

TUCO is the membership body for in-house caterers operating in higher education and the public sector. Being a member of TUCO entitles universities/colleges access to almost 300 'quality-assured' suppliers. 

The HCA promotes and develops the standards of catering in the healthcare sector. By giving patients nutritious food they are more likely to recover from surgery or illness.

PACE is the representative body for hospitality and catering education. The network of members includes 240 colleges and links to 30 universities.

The NACC supports and represents people working in the UK care-catering sector. For more than 30 years the NACC has been committed to raising standards of nutrition and hydration in care meals.

The aim of the PSC Expo is to bring together buyers, influencers and decision makers from across the industry. There are predicted to be over 2,500 visitors at the two-day event.

The PSC expo is FREE to attend for everyone working in public sector catering.
