Foodservice contractor BonCulina has announced plans to expand its UK operations with the intention of increasing its market share in the £10 billion UK foodservice contractor market.
BonCulina’s operations currently span large parts of the public sector, including care homes, hospitals, schools and the Armed Forces.
The contractor offers a “simply different” approach to foodservice which is targeted toward zero waste, and operates restaurants and canteens without having kitchens and chefs on site through the use of its patented Torus Pak technology. Torus Pak reduces the food waste of each meal by up to 90 per cent.
A portion of the company's profits are invested into the ‘Meal for a Meal’ CSR programme, targeting toward tackling world hunger.
BonCulina’s UK sales and operations director, Chris O’Neill, said: “We aspire to be different in foodservice by delivering cost efficiency and simplicity through our vast central recipe database.
“From the very best ready meal manufacturers and vegan to free from, to create a truly global larder of high-quality delicious dishes. This, in combination with optional operating methods offers flexibility and consistency beyond most clients’ needs and requirements.
“We have seen unprecedented demand for flexible foodservice solutions in an environment of rapid change during the pandemic. Our decision to increase capacity and expand operations in the UK, reflects the strength of the market.
“Our meals are frozen and packaged individually, helping us to manage fluctuating numbers and safety issues in the new Covid landscape. This also brings added benefits such as longer shelf life and easy storage.”
