The company said it offers a “simply different food service” approach striving towards a ”zero-food waste vision” while investing part of its profits into the ‘A Meal for a Meal’ corporate social responsibility programme.
Using the patented Torus Pak plating technology allows BonCulina to operate restaurants and canteens to high standards without a kitchen or even a chef on site.
BonCulina states that its disruptive business model, already operating in several other countries, brings together hundreds of meal varieties and the best international manufacturers in just one place. The company operates smart logistics to enable customers to choose meals without being tied into exclusive contracts and multiple delivery contracts and offers a multi-sector approach across business and industry, social care, education, healthcare, and defence, and is partnered with equipment manufacturers to deliver a high-end, hot vending service for the business and industry sector.
By reducing the number of operating elements, particularly labour, the company said it could reduce both operational and capital costs.
Chris O’Neill, BonCulina UK‘s sales and operations director, said: “We aspire to be different in food service 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 food service 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.”
