Canteens & Catering

Are you a Canteen Manager or Caterer running a school canteen? Then this page is for you! 

Our fundamental objectives are to assist schools to purchase more effectively and improve the profitability of school canteens by negotiating favourable discounts from companies supplying school canteens.

We are the largest school buying group in Australia with over 6,000 members, so ASCA members can enjoy sizeable discounts from a broad range of quality suppliers that are focused on delivering great service to schools.

Canteen Membership Benefits

Full Membership is available to schools that operate a canteen.

If your school canteen is run by a Caterer, we can also offer your canteen operator an ASCA Canteen membership and you can still enjoy a School Membership.

Canteen benefits include:

  • ASCA Rewards Loyalty Program: earn points simply by ordering products you normally purchase and redeem points for credit vouchers!
  • ASCAplus staff benefits program: take advantage of great discounts on personal purchases for all school staff and volunteers - across retail brands, travel, entertainment and the home!
