News for the Week
All School News: Important Notices for All Parents
We are excited to announce that ICS has signed an agreement with a new cafeteria service provider for the school year 2016-17 and 2017-18. ICS’s new cafeteria operator will be Addis International Catering PLC.
Based on the school’s policy to float a bid for cafeteria operating service every three years, a committee was set up in December 2015 to run the rigorous tender process. The Committee was set-up from various stakeholders of the school community which included parents, board members, administrators, teachers, students, representatives of the health office, operations department, human resources, procurement department with elementary middle and high school divisions.
The newly selected Cafeteria operator, Addis International Catering PLC, which demonstrated an impressive standard on hygiene, sanitation and quality control has shown an exceeding capability among other bidders in this tender process. It has experience to cater food for similar International Schools in Addis Ababa (such as the Sanford International and German Schools).
It owns a state- of- the art facility and a globally accredited food laboratory in Addis Ababa which will be an additional asset for our school to utilize.
We congratulate Addis International Catering PLC on their success.
