Food Safety

We buy high-quality frozen meals from our supplier, apetito. These meals are stored frozen and regenerated at our four main bases and then held in hot boxes or heated delivery bags during transport to our clients.

Clients also have the opportunity to order breakfast and tea meals. We purchase chilled sandwiches pre-packaged from our supplier Street Eats. Other ambient products are purchased through Bidvest Foodservice. The chilled products are held in cold boxes during transport to the clients.

On a smaller scale hot lunches are served at our Jubilee Centre at St Albans. The meals served are the same apetito meals used for other clients, but simply regenerated and served at the Jubilee Centre.

As part of our strict Food Safety processes, our team members carry out a number of daily monitoring checks. Many of these are documented checks, such as fridge and freezer, and cooked food temperature checks. Our team members receive training so that they understand the importance of these checks. They have also been trained as to what action they are required to take if the reading falls outside the acceptable limits of the check. These checks are also audited regularly to ensure we operate at the highest standards.
