    Stowe School, Buckingham

    "MEIKO provides a straightforward, honest service."

    ‘Stoics’ are the pupils of Stowe School and they enjoy a sublime environment.

    Stowe School occupies Stowe House and about 200 acres of the Stowe estate, surroundings of historical and architectural significance located in 880 acres of world-famous landscape gardens.

    Stowe School is an independent co-educational boarding School with approximately 800 pupils aged 13-18. There are around 500 full and part-time staff.

    The National Trust manages the landscape gardens and opens the grounds to over 200,000 visitors a year. Stowe House is open to the public during the School holidays and, for guided tours, during term time.

    Stowe House is Grade 1 listed. A line of State Rooms stretches for 150 metres and at the end of the east wing is the school catering operation including dining rooms, food servery, kitchens and ancillary support areas such as the dishwash.

    Meals service is an operation that involves around 45 staff producing and serving on average 12,250 meals a week, or around 1,750 meals a day across three services; breakfast, lunch and supper, seven days a week.

    The catering department also caters for match teas and parents’ teas, as well as offering hospitality for various activities including School society dinners, weddings and outside events during out of term periods. www.stowe.co.uk

    ...straightforward, honest service

    In 2019 the aged MEIKO flight dishwasher which managed the entire wash load was replaced with a like for like MEIKO flight machine and a new MEIKO hood dishwasher, with reverse osmosiswater treatment. The new flight machine featured a reduced unloading section compared to the old machine, allowing space for the hood type, which would be dedicated to glassware and cutlery.

    For clients who want their glasses and dishes to sparkle, improving the water quality is essential – and that calls for demineralisation or osmosis.

    Water does not always behave the same way when we clean with it. Some of the minerals it contains can inhibit performance by leaving those familiar ugly and unappetising smears on cutlery and glasses. In dishwashers they may deposit a fur commonly known as limescale.

    “I have worked with MEIKO and other warewashing suppliers. Meiko provides a straightforward, honest service. They do what they say they will do, and their service is good; I have not found that quality with some other suppliers.

    Head of Catering at Stowe School is Debbie Kelly-Greaves.

    “MEIKO specified the new machine and essentially it is like for like, washing the crockery, serving dishes and pots and pans for up to 900 covers in a lunchtime and up to 2000 meals daily.

    Sparkle and shine with 15 years support
    “The hood machine was added to the kitchen to give a sparkle to glassware and cutlery. It does a great job.

    “In terms of maintenance and service, we have had 15 years support from MEIKO. Their engineers are great. Always courteous, they know exactly what to do.

    “They are also quick to come out, within 24 hours is normal and usually within the same day!”
