"I have been with ASCA for many years and not only received great products but have formed a friendship with the suppliers.
Thanks to ASCA, through bulk purchase, we received a better discount on selected items. Every dollar we make, helps us fund the school."
Roan Lo, Canteen Manager
Donvale Christian College
"ASCA adds a family of support to me and our team of canteen workers.
We have found ASCA's ability to find reputable suppliers and the discounts that come with that to be of great value to our School Canteen Division of the business.
We totally recommend being on board with ASCA. You will save money.”

"ASCA is a great company and we love them, and all that they do for the canteen.
We love the ASCA suppliers and are very happy with the products and services, not to mention the great profits we have made for our canteen."
Kaye Fraser

"I am grateful that ASCA contracts prices for Canteens, to make prices more stable and affordable for us particularly when Canteens don’t have huge profit margins.
The service that Vanessa has provided me personally with setting up spreadsheets has been amazing. This has built my understanding of financial operations. The events and networking opportunities also have been greatly welcomed."
