Tuck Shop News 2017

By The team at Libelle Group | Posted: Thursday March 23, 2017

Welcome to the new school year!

We are proud to inform you of positive developments at your school Tuck Shop. Libelle Group, New Zealand’s leading school food & beverage service provider and winner of the Westpac Auckland Business Awards 2015 – Excellence in Customer Service Delivery, has been contracted to operate the canteen facility at Geraldine High from Monday 20th March 2017.

All our in-school shops (44) are operated under this banner and brand.

Our mission is to be a trusted, nutrition-focussed, quality food service provider. We achieve this with passionate people and smart systems, delivering a professional and efficient service to every customer. Here are some of the benefits with the change:

  • Value for money, nutritional menus for school Tuck Shop customers
  • Daily service during break times
  • Food designed by students for students
  • Audited compliance in food safety
  • Free fruit at the school tuck shop, regardless of decile rating
  • Absolute open book policy with school clients and student customers
  • Diabetes Projects Trust endorsed and audited – Cool Canteen Award
  • Cashless payment options, including coupon, eftpos and online ordering.

We successfully deliver this service by offering a broad spectrum of freshly made hot and cold, but also suitable/approved packaged items. Our listed menu changes every season and reflects the feedback and direct input we get from our customers through surveys and group workshops at schools around the Country. This process generates our generic menu, specialty items on trial and actual retail pricing at Tuck Shops. As each school has a vast range of very individual criteria / specifications / personality, what actually suits our customer best will vary from suburb to suburb, decile to decile, city to city and also month to month. This means, our teams at your school will respond to local, school community customer demands by tweaking, adding or subtracting items and/or ingredients to suit.

You can follow developments at your tuck shop on our website www.libelle.co.nz and Facebook.

There is no online ordering available yet. A phone app called Text My Lunch is in development and will be available soon.

Fruit dollar vouchers may be purchased at the school office - $5 each. They can be redeemed at the tuck shop for food to the value of $5.

We look forward to a great year and hope to get plenty of feedback at the counter from you once the daily service starts.
