The FoodCare Hub

FREE resources for aged care professionals.

The FoodCare Hub is an initiative launched by The Pure Food Co in 2019. The goal of the FoodCare Hub is to review the latest science, research and best-practices and digest the insights into a format that is easy to access for a wide audience of aged care professionals.

The Pure Food Co engages different topic experts who take ownership of reviewing and summarising the latest research and insights for their respective topic. Together, we then produce content such as guides, reports, online training, videos and more and make them available for free on this website.
