Our Hospital Meals Offering
Our hospital meals range caters for all, with our bulk offering, as well as our innovate individual plated meals solution, CarteChoix.
Our delicious and nutritious hospital food aids patient recovery, something particularly important for patients with special dietary requirements. We are leading the way with our Specialist Nutrition range, including or IDDSI-compliant texture-modified meals that prioritise safety in every bite for patients with swallowing difficulties, as well as being visually appealing.
We’ve also created energy dense smaller meal options to ensure malnourished patients—or those with smaller appetites—get the nutrition they need. Additionally, our Finger Foods range enables those with dexterity issues to pick up meal components more easily and still enjoy a nutritionally balanced full meal.
Leading the Way
At apetito, we are dedicated to leading the way in ethics in sustainability. We support our healthcare customer towards their net zero targets through a range of initiatives. We encourage all healthcare customers to return their meal trays through Project Boomerang, the NHS' first closed-loop recycling system, where 100% of returned trays are recycled into new trays right here in the UK. We can also support our customers to reduce their carbon emissions with our low carbon menus, developed in collaboration with St George's Hospital.
