Apetito launches new webinar from its ‘Lunch With’ series
Care home meals provider Apetito has launched a brand-new instalment of its ‘Lunch With…’ webinar series where it speaks with a range of experts in care about the importance of nutrition and issues impacting the care home sector.

This latest episode focuses on the importance of protecting our environment and the growing demand for businesses to operate in a responsible way.

Host Clare Hunt is joined by executive chair of the National Care Association Nadra Ahmed CBE and director of corporate affairs, policy and sustainability at Apetito Lee Sheppard. The trio deep dive into the growing importance of sustainability within the care home sector.

This episode explores actions care homes can take to proactively start lowering their environmental impact, including methods of reducing food waste through portion control and the importance of plate presentation to maximise mealtime enjoyment.

Richard Woodward, general manager for care homes at Apetito, said: “It was great to hear from Nadra, a leading voice in the care sector, on her current perceptions of sustainability within the care landscape and discuss how suppliers have an important role in supporting care homes to implement more sustainable business practices.

“Given the growing emphasis on this area for all businesses, I think this discussion is a vital one to be having sooner rather than later to ensure that we are all playing our part in reducing carbon emissions and supporting long-term planet health.”
