As winter approaches, could your care home catering team do with some extra support?

Published: 6th September 2023

It’s been tough recently. Food inflation, product availability, delivery challenges and labour shortages. And winter is on its way.

You may have an in-house procurement team who could do with some support, someone to take the strain and drive further savings and supply improvements. Or you may be looking to free up your catering team to continue providing exceptional food, and leave the day to day supplier challenges and price negotiations to someone else.

This is where food procurement experts and NACC premier partners, allmanhall will listen & help!

Join the care groups already benefitting from allmanhall’s award winning food procurement support and savings…

Affordable Housing and Healthcare Group (AHH)’s procurement lead engaged allmanhall to provide a solution for their food procurement and identify deliverable cost savings without compromising on quality, improve the service of suppliers and eliminate the burden of administrative tasks through a central billing solution.

“allmanhall have greatly minimised the time we spend on admin, and we now have complete transparency and visibility of our food spend, enabling us to confidently demonstrate efficient cost-effective practices to our residents. We really appreciate how uncomplicated the administration has become, the catering software and tablets really help to streamline our processes, removing previous challenges. The proactive approach with wine sampling for our residents, along with nutritional talks from their dietitian, enabled our communities to be part of our menu creation. Having a local client relationship team who are always happy to support has been really valuable”.
- Amy Nemeth, AHH, Head of Hospitality and Procurement


Taylor and Taylor’s Group Executive Chef, Chris Rees initially met allmanhall at last year’s NACC TDF and says:

“From day 1, the care and attention provided by allmanhall has been exceptional. The team truly listen to us, to what our challenges are and are always willing to help in any way they can. Their approach is thorough and responsive, meaning we feel fully supported… I’ve been impressed by the savings we’ve already seen, the flexibility regarding suppliers and by the excellent quality. The consolidation of invoices into 1 per month is a huge win. I would wholeheartedly recommend allmanhall’s services to others in the care sector.”
