"Our elderly deserve better than $7 a day on food" - Maggie Beer 22/07/19
We couldn't agree more! If you didn't hear the evidence from the Aged Care Royal Commission, some aged care facilities spend as little as $7 on food every day for each of their residents. Just like Celebrity Chef, Maggie Beer, we agree that it's distressing to hear the multitude of complaints about food service in aged care.
SBS reported Chef Nicholas Hall - "Some aged care providers and third-party caterers say they are interested in food satisfaction but are really only focused on saving money. They're just racing to the bottom to see who can feed for the lowest amount of cost."
Our company motto is to enhance the quality of human life. Flavour Creations CEO Bernadette Eriksen's passion is to deliver flavoursome and nutritious food to those who need it most and to make mealtime a pleasure. Bernadette knows that texture modified food that delivers flavour, nutrition and is well-presented can also be cost-effective. She’s been showing how for the past 22 years.
We know there are some great aged care facilities and chefs out there doing a fantastic job. The opportunity is there for all to follow their lead.
What do you think? Let us know your thoughts on this heated topic.?
