1 January, 2013
Submitted: 21 April, 2015
Please decribe how you and your caterers have encouraged healthier restaurants/vending outlet/buffets (as applicable) for your staff over the last year. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section.
Launched in 2013; You & Life replaces the previous health and nutrition programme 'Balance' and underpins Elior's philosophy on health and nutrition and lays out our approach to the responsible and sustainable delivery of healthy, safe and great tasting food. You & Life is designed for both our own internal programme on health and wellbeing as well as being our external, customer facing approach to health and nutrition in order to deliver maximum benefit to our staff and customers. Developed in conjunction with our dietitians, You & Life is backed by a comprehensive resource manual, training videos, along with a dedicated website and training resources. Through You & Life we are not only aiming to improve health and wellbeing at the individual level, but also deliver broader workplace benefits for all those critical to the Elior business- our clients, our customers and our own staff.
A range of healthier drinks are available at all sites, and water is freely available to all staff. Ongoing recipe modification and reformulation helps to ensure the nutritional balance of Elior's food remains optimal, for example by reducing the fat, salt and energy content. We have worked with our suppliers to identify products containing artificial trans fats and sourced artificial trans fat free alternatives. A wide variety of fruit, vegetables and salads are available at most sites, and some sites have RI labeling on a wide range of foods, not only pre-packaged items such as sandwiches, but also for our own freshly prepared hot dishes.
We have a full staff restaurant at our main site and also have some light meals and snacks available at our Head Office. We are already providing healthier beverages, including water which is freely available, sugar free drinks and fruit juices. Fresh fruit is freely available at our Head Office as a snack for all staff. The sandwiches and salads have nutrition information on pack and a number of healthier options are available.
