Aspens Services has been awarded a three-year catering contract extension with North Birmingham Academy worth £650,000.
Scheduled to commence in January 2012, the new food service contract sees the independent caterer work with the academy as it moves into new buildings that are currently under construction.
Aspens is advising on the design and layout of the new dining facilities, which will cater for up to 1,200 students.
The business retention coincides with Aspens celebrating securing the Soil Association's Food for Life Silver Catering Mark for the Academy's catering service, recognising its high standard of healthy and sustainable meals using locally-sourced and organic produce.
Aspens director Amanda Ashmore said: "Since we started catering at the academy in January 2009, we have worked closely with students and staff to develop the meals service.
"We are thrilled that our commitment to the use of local, seasonal produce as well as organic and Fairtrade items, free-range eggs, high-welfare meat and sustainably-sourced fish has been recognised through the Food for Life Silver Catering Mark."
