Vulnerable people like Bob

Bob is 79 years old and lives at home on his own.  He has difficulty swallowing and as a result has been eating less as it is getting more difficult for him.  This has meant he is now losing weight, fatigues easily and his family are concerned.

After weight-loss surgery 

Judy is 46 years old and has recently had bariatric surgery – gastric sleeve surgery for weight loss.  To aid her recovery post the operation she needs high protein pureed food that is a safe texture and tastes great.

Customer Testimonials

“One of our more difficult residents (a fussy eater) who is on a texture modified diet stood up at the residents meeting and thanked the kitchen for the new puree food. She said she had been surviving on custard for a while, and so is very grateful. She loves the braised cabbage in particular. – Chef, Cantabria Lifecare

“I just love how they have approached their business. You can really tell it comes from a place of authenticity and connecting with the idea. Particularly when you hear Sam’s story and how the idea came about. Adds an emotional connection to the product and brand. The fact that the reps are qualified dietitians is also fantastic – reinforces that credibility.” – Nurse manager

“Chicken Veloute smells good, really tempting, getting lots of positive comments from residents and staff” – Ryman Jean Sandel
