Making a real difference for your care home
Easy to store, cook and serve
Simply remove the frozen dishes of your choice and follow the cooking instructions on the lid. Food waste is reduced as you're only cooking what you need.
We'll even train your staff on plate presentation to ensure residents get a meal that looks and tastes great.
Your partner in business
We work with you to set clear and achievable budgets and will review this regularly.
This ensures efficiency in your food provision, keeps waste to a minimum and guarantees a great mealtime experience. That means you can focus on providing the best level of care for residents.
Tailored programmes & training
We'll tailor training to your needs. We will train your staff to store, prepare and cook our meals. We also offer training in plate presentation and resident dining experience, ensuring that meals are not only safe for your individual residents needs but are also enjoyed and shared together.
IDDSI training and advice can also be provided to staff caring for those living with dysphagia.
Ongoing support and review
Alongside your dedicated account manager, you'll have access to our in-house dietitian and team of advisers to support with new dietary requirements and last minute orders.
We also regularly produce helpful literature to support with challenging inspections, including our care home nutrition guidelines.
If the CQC inspected us today, I could tell them the exact nutritional content of every single meal we serve.
