Guarantee food safety and allergen control

Controlling allergens is a challenge for any care home, but we can help. Our strict health and safety procedures mean apetito is one of the safest catering options available for care homes.

We can trace our ingredients across the supply chain thanks to our clear, detailed labelling on each meal.

Offer choice and variety with tailored menus

We'll help you plan menus that address the specific nutritional needs of older adults. With over 200 dishes, our delicious, nutritional care home meals are the perfect antidote to menu fatigue.

Each meal’s suitability is clearly labelled in our product list, with ingredients and nutritional values listed on the label and in our online nutritional database.

Look after resident health and happiness

Serving tasty, nutritious meals helps to protect residents from becoming malnourished or unwell, with less chance that they'll skip mealtimes. Our chefs work with qualified dietitians to ensure our meals not only taste great but are packed with goodness.

However, we don't just rely on our chefs to ensure our meals are appetising. We regularly provide tasting sessions for you and your residents to give feedback, ensuring resident satisfaction.

Creating a true dining experience

Creating a supportive dining experience can make all the difference to your residents — especially if they’re living with dementia.


We use our expertise and experience to help staff create an environment that supports and encourages those living with dementia to eat a nutritionally balanced meal.
