Anglia Crown, which provides meal solutions for the healthcare sector ranging from roast dinners to veggie pasta and BBQ chicken drumsticks, says that around 10 years ago its sales split was 2% frozen and 98% chilled, but now its frozen product sales have overtaken chilled sales with a split of 53% and 47% respectively.
Hospitals unable to produce all its meals on-site could benefit having pre-prepared frozen meals, particularly for specific dietary requirements, advises head of commercial, Paul Howell.
“A trust or hospital choosing a pre-prepared frozen meal service benefits from improved efficiencies, cost savings, waste reductions and consistent quality,” he adds.
“Our meals are beneﬁcial for wards with high patient turnover and unpredictable volumes. Individual prepared dishes enable customers to serve the exact number of patients on a ward at any time.”
