Here are a few of the solutions relevant to state and independent schools

BGL Rieber is famous as the supplier of the orange Thermoport Food Transport Boxes used throughout the education systems in the UK, where many boxes have been in use for more than 20 years, providing a totally hygienic and reliable method of transporting and serving hot and cold food.

Thermoports have also received a make-over, with the introduction of heated Thermoport models proving especially popular.

There is much more to BGL Rieber and if you only know us for providing  insulated boxes, which will always play an essential role, there is increasing demand for our other products which you may not be aware of that are already in use in this sector.
