Crown prepared meal solutions for care homes
Perfectly presented, cost-effective and nutritious.
Our next generation, frozen meal solution Crown Advantage, is ideal for care home caterers with little or no kitchen facilities and who wish to offer a perfectly presented, nutritious meal with minimum fuss.
Crown Advantage is the only prepared meal for the healthcare market with a removable base. The brand new concept meal solution from Anglia Crown is challenging traditional packaging in the prepared meal sector. The ground-breaking technology has been developed directly from patient feedback, and research and development within Anglia Crown.
The Smartpack base is completely removable in just four easy steps, and is unlike any other ready meal in the healthcare market. It effortlessly allows meals to be transferred, with precise presentation, through the base of the pack, directly onto a warm bowl or plate.
Poor meal presentation has often been highlighted as an obstacle to resident dining, Crown Advantage overcomes this by producing an enhanced meal offer, which is both nutritious and healthy but also appetising to look at and eat.
“We eat with our eyes. By improving presentation we can help to increase patient satisfaction and advance the dining experience within the cost sector.”
Ruth Smith, Registered Dietitian.
Anglia Crown runs its own state of the art logistics and distribution system which services over 100 sites nationwide. To service the broader care market, Crown Advantage will be available through selected wholesalers.

Over 35 main menu choices
Crown Advantage is not just about clever packaging, it’s also about producing good quality food, a balanced menu choice and helping recovery through healthy meals.
The new frozen range has 39 main dish choices and enables caterers to provide a nutritionally balanced menu, whilst its exact portion size and control, helps to reduce wastage.
The range comes in two sizes, standard and smaller appetite, resulting in patients and residents receiving a meal that is suitable for their individual needs. With catering budgets continuing to be squeezed, not all caterers are able to access the funding to operate a commercial kitchen on site, the Crown Advantage prepared meal concept is an ideal solution for hospitals and care homes that have limited space, equipment, resources and staff.
