The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution Care Company has signed a five-year agreement with caterer White Oaks, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, to offer residents dining services in 12 of its care homes across the UK.

 

The new service will include “nutritionally analysed, balanced menus with seasonal produce”.

 

There will be improved supper choices with more variety, pictorial menus, home comforts and finger food available 24 hours a day. This enhanced service also benefits from new crockery, cutlery, glassware and table linen.

 

Catering staff will undergo training from both RMBI Care Co.’s learning and development team “to ensure they are meeting the charity’s customer service standards and White Oaks, to provide an understanding of texture modified diets to support residents’ individual needs”. 

 

RMBI Care Co., care for older Freemasons and their families as well as some people in the community. 

 

Russell Blake, business director of healthcare at Compass Group UK & Ireland said: “We design our menus with chefs and our expert nutritionists to specifically cater for people living in care homes and meet their needs.”

 

White Oaks’ focus is on providing “exceptional nutrition to create better living for those in care homes”.
