Established in 1994, Pasta King employs 55 staff at its headquarters in Newton Abbot, Devon, including a country wide network of field sales managers.
Pasta King supplies over 13 million “nutritious” ‘grab and go’ meals into the primary and secondary education sector in the UK, with a growing presence in the health, leisure and care sector.
The company has a sales turnover of around £8m and operates through a network of 19 regional distribution centres to deliver chilled sauces on a daily basis. Last year, Pasta King was recognised as LACA’s (The School Food People) Outstanding Supplier of the Year 2018 within the education sector.
Allen said: “Pasta King provides meal solutions comprising mostly pasta with made to order sauces. The meals are served hot from pasta bars which are loaned to the company’s customer base.
“As a healthy and tasty food offering, Pasta King has become very popular in primary and secondary schools across the UK and satisfies government standards on salt, saturated fat and vegetable content.”
