Stock Box has become the exclusive product sampling service for Federation of Canteens in Schools Inc (FOCiSTM).
The partnership will provide companies whose products are registered under the FOCiSTM Food Registration Program with the opportunity to promote approved canteen products to registered canteen members of the Stock Box program under an exclusive arrangement.
Stock Box managing director, Craig Matthews, said the deal was a significant step forward for its program, and is the first commercial arrangement the company has entered since Stock’Box’s inception.
“We now have the ability to promote FOCiSTM registered products and provide registered FOCiSTM companies with direct access to canteens via the Stock Box product sample box,” Mr Matthews said.
FOCiS promotes and facilitates the provision of nutritious and healthy food services in schools and the broader community.
According to Megan Neeson, FOCiSTM vice chairperson, partnering with the food industry to provide appropriate products direct to schools, is a unique and much desired service.
The first product box to go out will showcase winter canteen approved products to all registered canteen members nationally at the start of term two, followed by a summer product box scheduled to go out at the start of term four.
Canteens can register to the program for free by following the links on both the Stock Box and FOCiS webpages, and suppliers can also express interest now by following the supplier links or by making direct contact below.
