IT DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN PIPING HOT SOUP ON A COLD DAY. OR AN ICE-COOL THIRST-QUENCHING DRINK ON A HOT ONE.
And if you like hearty stews then you can’t go wrong with a nice Lancashire hot pot. But that depends on what you’ve been doing, and whether or not you eat lamb — or even meat.
Everybody has an idea about the food they want, and what they fancy will change according to what they’ve been doing and where they’ve been doing it.
If you’ve been working outside on a cold, wet day, for example, then you’re more likely to want something hot and hearty, while if you’re sweating in the sun (don’t we wish), then maybe a salad is more appropriate.
Then for all the office workers out there — and there are lots of them — who are inside and often quite sedentary throughout the day, there will be a big demand for healthy, delicious foods that help to keep the energy up, while keeping the waist size down.
It’s all about making sure people have the right food to suit their tastes and their nutritional requirements.
For example, did you know that a fire fighter can burn up to 748 calories an hour by just doing their job, while a desk-bound office worker could be burning as few as 34? Similarly a tree surgeon could be using up to 1,088 calories an hour, while a traffic officer might burn less than 10 per cent of that (CalorieLab, 2013).
Clearly there’s a big difference in the nutritional requirements of each job. But at Eurest different requirements mean exciting potential to offer variety depending on the needs of your workforce, and we relish that as an opportunity to deliver creative solutions to the needs of our customers.
We’re all about helping you get the right food to nourish your workforce, whatever the weather, wherever the job — whoever they are.
So whatever you need, wherever you need it, and whatever special requirements you have, we can deliver the service you want in a way that suits you.
So get in touch for a chat. We’d be delighted to talk to you about delivering a food service solution to suit your needs in a way that works for you.
