Make Office Catering Safe in the Age of COVID-19

As companies design their return to office plan for a social distancing environment, extra consideration is needed for office catering. To strengthen food hygiene and safety protocols,  return to office committees are asking:  

  • Can we provide a safe office meal program? 
  • Do we close off the shared common areas for eating? 
  • How do we reduce risk of COVID-19 transmission from elevator traffic?

We are here to help you navigate through these challenges of organizing your office lunches. Across North America, we are seeing that companies are choosing individually packaged meals as their return to work solution.

Here are five reasons why ordering individually packaged meals is the safest option for your team – 

1. Avoid buffet style queues: Eliminate long queues of hungry employees and the need to set 6 feet distancing markers for line-ups. Individual meals allow your team to grab & go. 

2. Reduce communal cross contamination: Remove the use of sharing style utensils and plates, along with the set-up and clean-up of these meals.

3. Minimize traffic in and out of the office: Keep employees in the office and out of crowded spaces, like elevators. 

4. Avoid busy food courts: Reduce exposure to highly congested areas where physical distancing may be challenging. 

5. Help eliminate food waste: Order only for those in the office and reduce your environmental footprint, as food supply chains are under enormous pressure during COVID-19.
