Hampshire-based education caterer Pabulum has won a contract worth almost £3m to cater for a collection of schools in Kent.
The deal with the Primary First Trust, a group of self-supporting primary schools ranging, will see Pabulum provide food for seven schools, with the aim of "harmonising" meal prices across all of them.
Two other firms bid for the five-year deal.
The schools covered by the contract are: Barnehurst Infant School, Erith; Barnehurst Junior School, Erith; Cuxton Infant School, Rochester; Cuxton Junior School, Rochester; Lessness Heath Primary School, Erith; Mayplace Primary School, Bexleyheath; Wayfield Primary School, Chatham.
No-one from Pabulum, which won Education Caterer of the Year at the Foodservice Cateys 2016, was available to comment.
