Wiltshire Farm Foods Professional launches into care homes

apetito, the market leader in pre-prepared meal solutions for the care home market, has launched a new service to homes under the Wiltshire Farm Foods brand – Wiltshire Farm Foods Professional.

Wiltshire Farm Foods Professional offers a solution to care homes that are looking to enhance their specialist nutrition offer to meet residents’ complex dietary needs. That may be to cater for residents with swallowing difficulties (dysphagia), or those who are living with one or more of the fourteen known allergens, alongside the need to accommodate many different cultural needs and preferences and, importantly, those residents who may be at risk of malnutrition.

Wiltshire Farm Foods Professional now creates the chance for every home to benefit from the world-leading range of specialist nutrition products even when they are not taking the apetito full-service meal solution. There are no delivery charges and no contractual commitments, while providing access to texture modified meals that comply to the highest IDDSI (International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative) standards for residents living with dysphagia.

Also available is the award-winning Finger Food Bites range for residents living with dementia (nutrition packed in bite-sized delicious pieces which can be easily eaten without any mess), as well as an extensive ‘free-from’ range. There is a broad choice of meals that are low in salt or sugars, alongside a range of tailored nutrition and energy dense meals (Purée Petite) for those residents who may have smaller appetites or be at risk of malnourishment.

Chief commercial officer for Wiltshire Farm Foods, Ian Stone, said: “Catering for diverse dietary needs across a care home is incredibly complex. Mealtimes is a central part of a residents day and restoring enjoyment to food and helping residents dine with dignity is vital.

“We know that some homes find it hard to achieve the right levels of nutrition to meet personalised resident pathways, whilst ensuring these sit within budgetary constraints. And with labour costs still rocketing, it can be a difficult process to manage effectively and to a budget.

“Here’s a solution for care homes, which guarantees safety in every bite and delivers a meal quality which homes would find very difficult to replicate. And it’s a solution that is backed up by Wiltshire Farm Foods’ famous service values – no contractual requirement and free delivery.”
