Its frozen Crown Advantage lasagne won Gold at the 2015 BFFF awards in the main meal category and this year they launched a range of frozen desserts
Graham Thornton, Commercial Director comments:
“Frozen prepared meals are a cost effective way to provide nutritious hospital food. This is especially true within hospitals that are without the staff, equipment or resources in-house to provide a full meal service but can work well in all situations.
Our frozen prepared meals are not only nutritionally sound but are an excellent way to help reduce bulk waste from catering operations, one of the big causes of waste within our industry. Add to that, the convenience of frozen, its extended shelf life, precise portion control and the guaranteed consistency of each meal and its not hard to see why frozen is such a popular option.
With demand for frozen going from strength to strength we extended and launched a new frozen dessert range this year.
With desserts being a fundamental part of a two course meal, patients really look forward to them so it’s imperative that we provide high quality options to go on menus and frozen desserts provide operators choice and flexibility. ”
Our extensive ranges have been developed to cover diverse nutritional needs and include vegetarian, halal, purees and texture modified prepared meals.”
Anglia Crown’s range, Crown Advantage which won the Best New Main Course category in 2015 for its lasagne at the BFFF (British Frozen Food Federation) awards was also the same range nominated for the Cost Sector Catering Innovation Award. The range consists of 39 main frozen meal choices that have been designed to meet the nutritional and preference requirements of varying patient groups. The exact portion size and control helps to reduce wastage of food within the healthcare sector.
