Gareth Jones, Head Chef at the University of Bath

Gareth Jones, Head Chef at the University of Bath, says that since introducing Chef Solutions Mash, he has increased sales, saved time, reduced waste and can now offer high quality mash on a consistent basis, increasing customer satisfaction.

The pre-peeled potatoes Gareth was using previously took a long time to prepare and the end result was inconsistent and didn’t meet the standards he required.  Because of this waste was high.

Use McCain Chef Solutions Simply Mash in place of preparing mash from scratch.


Since switching to Simply Mash, mash is outselling chips, with many customers now choosing to have fish and mash as opposed to fish and chips. In addition to increased customer satisfaction, waste has been decreased by up to 10kg every time mash is on the menu and hours of preparation time are being saved every week.
