Compass India Food Services Private Limited, a leading provider of food solutions globally, is redefining school cafeterias with a revolutionary, nutrition-first solution for the K-12 segment. The reimagined food solution, designed for students, has three key aspects–
  1. Focus on food nutrition with an in-depth understanding of their emotional, functional and social needs at school.
  2. Creating ‘happy’food experiences by looking at and designing food through a child’s lens.
  3. Building a lasting habit of healthy eating through experiential learning and engagement.
According to an annual survey conducted by Univariety, the education sector in India has undergone a massive change, especially since the Covid-19 pandemic. We are starting to see a heightened focus on emotional and mental health and an emphasis on overall wellbeing. Parent expectations for their child’s development and learning has soared and millennial parents today expect schools to take a holistic learning approach. Compass India’s newly launched Chartwells food solution will help Indian K-12 schools in that journey with a comprehensive approach that will create a new, strong relationship between children and heathy food.

Commenting on the initiative, Paramita Bagchi, CFO and MD designate at Compass India, says, "As a leader in the food space, Compass India has in-depth understanding of how food plays a pivotal role in addressing a child’s emotional, social and functional needs. Unfortunately, the connection between food and children today is broken.The current reality is that most food innovations focus on adult food, designed with their needs in mind. Chartwells India’s unique food solution has been developed from a child’s lens and is focussed on the concept of ‘invisible health’. We believe that the right kind of school food can enhance learning capacity and directly impact the child’s health, well-being, and future. As a parent, I am delighted to be a part of this initiative”.

Studies across the world have established that nutrition is an integral part of a child's mental and physical growth and development. Today, India has the second-highest number of obese children in the world, indicating that home is no longer a site for food education. With the concept of ‘outsourced parenting’ and easy access to junk and processed food, the problem today is of ‘mis-nourishment’. Compass India’s food solution is powered by Chartwells Proprietary Nutritional Guidance Platform that has a comprehensive taxonomy of macro, micro nutrition data and allergens for all ingredients by dish and menu. This scientifically designed food solution has been developed with an in-depth understanding of students’ unique nutritional, developmental, emotional and social needs.
