Compass brand White Oaks wins five-year care catering deal

White Oaks, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has won a five-year deal with care home provider RMBI Care Co. to provide catering at 12 of its homes across the UK.

The new service will include nutritionally analysed, balanced menus using seasonal produce.

White Oaks has promised improved supper choices with more variety, pictorial menus, home comforts and finger food available 24 hours a day.

It will also provide new crockery, cutlery, glassware and table linen.

Catering staff will undergo training from both RMBI Care Co.'s learning and development team to ensure they are meeting the charity's customer service standards and White Oaks, to provide an understanding of texture modified diets to support residents' individual needs.

Karen Salley, care operations director at RMBI Care Co. said: "Mealtimes are a really important part of the day in our care homes. It gives people the opportunity to socialise with friends and enjoy tasty, nutritional dishes. We want to enhance this experience as much as possible for our residents to ensure that they feel comfortable, relaxed and have a good variety of food options to choose from.

Russell Blake, business director of healthcare at Compass Group UK & Ireland said: "We design our menus with chefs and our expert nutritionists to specifically cater for people living in care homes and meet their needs. We're looking forward to working with the residents of RMBI Care Co. to ensure meal times are something that they look forward to, with fresh and great tasting meals."
