Care Showcase

Care sector publication launched by Brakes

A new 88-page publication has been published by Brakes to help customers with catering in the care sector.

The foodservice wholesaler has gathered all its expertise and product knowledge to create Care Showcase, which is available in print and online.

The magazine is a guide to Brakes’ range of products and services that deliver nutritious, enjoyable foods to meet the differing needs of care residents, enhancing their quality of life and wellbeing – collating nutritional advice, menu support and product information.

All of this is backed up with advice from the Brakes care team, made up of specialist development chefs, nutritionists and researchers.

Video guides appear throughout the online version of the magazine, adding a further dimension to the Showcase. There is even a guide to the Brakes Virtual Chef, an online nutritional analysis tool that can calculate nutrition, calories and allergens in every dish in an instant.

“Mealtimes are often the highlight of the day in care homes and are central to the physical wellbeing of residents,” says Brakes’ Head of Customer Marketing, Cathy Amos.

“Our Care Showcase publication brings together all the specialist knowledge and advice required to cater for residents, whether they be simply elderly, more complex dementia patients, or those who have physical difficulties eating. Coupled with a guide to our extensive product range, the initiative delivers a handbook to everything you need to cater for care homes, all from a single, safe, reliable source.”
