Global foodservice contractor BonCulina UK has strengthened its commercial team with three new appointments and it has also been made foodservice supplier to Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust. Mersey Care is a large organisation with a wide range of community and in-patient mental health care for some of the most complex individuals in the NHS.
The Trust’s catering manager Martin Currell said: “The extensive product range and quality on offer from BonCulina has allowed the Trust to create a varied menu cycle with nutritious flavoursome dishes, which is so important for our longer stay patients.
“As sustainability is key to us, we also greatly appreciate BonCulina using recyclable packaging. By offering flexible deliveries to suit our storage facilities at the different sites, BonCulina meets our food service requirements very well and we look forward to developing our partnership.”
BonCulina is on a mission to deliver high-quality chilled and frozen multi-portion and frozen plated meals into healthcare, care homes and other public sectors. BonCulina UK is now looking at building on its growth in the UK and potentially also extending its reach to adjacent markets.
Mark Smith, head of healthcare sales at BonCulina UK, added: “This recent growth was a challenge but we’re very pleased to have successfully mobilised these new contracts quickly, with our operations and commercial teams working closely together.
“The new contracts are a testament of the implementation of a new approach, with the shift from Anglia Crown’s production mentality to BonCulina’s customer-centric catering approach.”
