Harvest Fine Foods Expertise In Healthcare

Harvest Fine Foods works with small, independent and large healthcare organisations, hospitals care homes and retirement villages across the south coast, one of our largest clients is the Hampshire Care Association.

Through working with chefs and buyers within the care sector, we have gained an understanding of the day-to-day challenges care chefs face, such as managing small budgets while aiming to keep the standards of food high, as well as how to cater for people that have a range of new and emerging dietary needs.

We are also empathetic to the challenges care chefs face, when catering for people living with dysphagia, dementia and diabetes and  provide care chefs with a range of solutions, to help them meet the wants and needs of their residents with different dietary requirements. These solutions are shared when we sponsor or host care cook workshops, alongside the Hampshire Care Home Association and our suppliers. At these workshops we give care chefs inspiration to create interesting and nutritious meal ideas, suitable for all their residents.

A  Customer Testimonial from healthcare Colten Care

“Harvest Fine Foods is good value for money, deliveries come on time and are correct. If there is a problem they are quick to react. I have also saved money when products have been on offer. It is clear Harvest Fine Foods are trying to understand the care sector. Although different care homes have different needs, when I speak to Harvest’s telesales team, they can recommend new products to me that other homes are purchasing regularly, which may also be of interest to me.” Aidan, Head Chef at St Catherine’s View Care Home (Colten Care)
