Top Chef calls for overhaul of hospital catering procurement in Ireland

A top Irish Chef has pointed to hospital catering as an area ripe for an overhaul at a recent food festival debate. Speaking at the Grow Food Festival in Waterford (Ireland), Darina Allen suggested that a more flexible approach could help improve the quality and sustainability of meals.

“There are many, many challenges, particularly in the huge hospitals, to get out a vast quantity of food for all ages and all situations and so on,” Ms Allen said. “One of the areas that I think has been looked at in other countries and changed and possibly urgently needs to be looked at in this country is the procurement system.”
