1. Introduction to apetito
At apetito, we are the leading experts in serving nutritious, delicious meals for older people. We help care groups overcome their catering challenges by reducing catering costs, guaranteeing delicious nutritious food and improving residents dining experience. All our meals are packed with quality, nutritious ingredients and are created by our in-house chefs and dietitians to guarantee that they are as delicious as they are nourishing.
2. Partnership with Care England. “We are really encouraged to see the work apetito is doing to support care homes up and down the country, ensuring residents receive nutritious meals to keep them safe and well. It is reassuring to know that apetito will continue to provide our care homes with great food and guarantee deliveries of high quality, nutritious meals throughout the Covid-19 outbreak. By maintaining its commitment to the care sector, apetito is helping to alleviate some of the pressures felt and ensuring that, even during the current crisis, care homes receive the same excellent service and on-going customer support they have always enjoyed.”
– Professor Martin Green, Chief Executive of Care England
We are proud to work closely with Care England and their members.
3. Deeper dive into apetito
We believe everyone deserves a nutritious meal – particularly the vulnerable and elderly.
With over 200 delicious dishes and a number of ranges we can cater for every taste, dietary and cultural preferences.
We are particularly proud of our Queens Award winning range of Texture Modified meals, that have been developed in line with IDDSI standards for those residents living with a swallowing difficulty.
These meals ensure that the focus is off the diners’ dietary differences and instead placed back on the pleasure of residents dining together at the table. Other ranges include our Energy Dense meals for residents who are underweight or malnourished and our Mini Meals Extra range that are small but packed full of calories for those with reduced appetites. https://www.apetito.co.uk/care-home-meal-services/care-homes-range/
Dining with dementia
We know the setting and presentation of a meal play a huge role in the overall dining experience – especially for those living with dementia. That is why we have created a dementia-friendly pop-up restaurant designed to show how our services provide exceptional, memorable mealtimes for every resident. We use this pop-up for you and your staff to learn some simple ways to make your dining experience more dementia-friendly for your residents. When you partner with us we can turn even the most ordinary room, hall or space into a unique, dementia friendly dining room, ready for you to enjoy.
Our safety promise
For every meal created in our Wiltshire kitchen, a batch is tested by a specialist team in our two accredited onsite labs. These tests not only confirm the nutritional value of the meals but also guarantee their safety before reaching the table. Giving you peace of mind that you are always serving safe delicious meals.
Our rigorous testing takes the pressure off our partners when it comes to health and safety within their kitchens. Making it easier to obtain a five-star EHO rating.
