Our branded ‘Food To Flourish’ electric vans took to the road in Autumn 2019 and the response has been nothing short of ‘van-tastic’!

The two vans, supplied by HTM, are electric Nissan env200s and are used to deliver freshly prepared lunch short distances from school kitchens to local schools in the east and west regions of Hampshire. With zero emissions, they’re contributing to the County Council’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2050. What’s more, the branding images have been produced in a sustainable non-PVC wrap to ensure we took the most ethical approach.

If you stop in traffic and see our van we want people to know that our freshly cooked school lunches only travel a short distance to schools without kitchens. The response from everyone who has seen them has been ‘electric’! Win win.
