When we found CaterCloud we were delighted to discover that it had been designed with our industry in mind – a system that allowed us to create consistency in our service offering whilst also allowing our catering staff the freedom and flexibility to cater for specific requirements within the individual homes. The allergen information it provides us with is a key benefit. When Natasha’s Law comes into force next year it is going to throw a real spotlight on this issue again. CaterCloud takes any of the guesswork out of this and ensures that all our meals are compliant.

We have found CaterCloud to be a very valuable tool in designing menus, costings and allergen advice for our contract catering business. Things have moved on now with CaterCloud and I cannot wait to get to grips with the new design and improvements. What sets it apart - a company that listens and understands the needs of my business and comes up with the goods. Thank you!

From the start CaterCloud is the easiest, user friendly system that gives the exact information we require for our clients. Everything on CaterCloud is simple and well organised from the process to the layout – with our logo! The thing that got me most excited like a little kid again was the simple QR code and link that allows our clients to simply download the menus to see the information they require at the click of a button. Brilliant! The training is informative and precise, with aftercare questions very quickly responded to and always there to help and advise. Thank you Alex G. One happy customer!
