Food supplier apetito is to take its new mobile presentation suite – the appetiser – the care homes around the country.
The suite has been specially developed and fitted out to offer care homes the opportunity to enjoy socially distanced presentations and food tastings.
Using the apetiser’s built-in kitchen and presentation area, customers can experience and taste products first-hand and discuss their changing needs whilst maintaining the highest levels of safety in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A key theme for discussion is around how care homes can maintain the quality of their dining experience whilst reducing waste and labour costs amidst the challenges that they are facing, and which look set to continue in the months ahead.
‘The launch of the apetiser is a hugely exciting and innovative move for the business and is part of how we look to forge a new future and find different ways to support our customers and develop new opportunities,’ said divisional manager, Neil Hargreaves.
‘The apetiser means we can go to care homes who would like to discuss their catering requirements, invite them to join us in a socially distanced environment, and they can experience for themselves the great dining experience that apetito can help them deliver to their residents. It allows us to present to them without entering the home itself alongside safety concerns and the procedures that are in place”.
‘Right now, we know that every penny counts for care homes and alongside delivering great food and nutrition, we can help care homes through reducing waste, labour and associated cost. Most importantly, we can mobilise new services quickly and safely, which right now is top of mind for many of the care homes that we are talking to,’ he added.
