Our state-of-the-art, fully-automated 24-hour hot food solution has just launched in the UK. Ooft Kitchen! combines state-of-the-art-technology, healthy ingredients and speed, to heat wholesome, all-natural, ready-to-eat meals in a matter of minutes. Before ordering a meal, users simply browse the onscreen menu which displays each meal’s ingredients, allergens and nutritional information, giving the consumer an opportunity to make a decision before ordering and paying for their meal. Once a meal is chosen, users can pay using cash, a credit or debit card, or Apple Pay, and then two minutes later a hot, ready-to-eat meal is delivered directly to the customer.
Ooft Kitchen! allows employers and facilities providers to retail the Ooft Kitchen! range of 10 hot meals, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’ve also done our best to ensure that the Ooft Kitchen! range caters for all dietary requirements: the entire menu is naturally gluten free (and suitable for coeliacs) with high protein, vegetarian and vegan options also available. The ingredients and allergens are all clearly outlined on-screen, along with the calories and key attributes for each recipe. Each meal is prepared by hand in its BRC Grade A+ commercial kitchen using all-natural ingredients. Again, by investing in state-of-the-art technology, the meals can be stored without refrigeration which by default eliminates wastage and dispenses with the use of artificial preservatives or additives in our meals.
Crucially, Ooft Kitchen! has provided NHS Hospitals with a solution to meet their CQUIN Indicator 1b criteria (introduced in March 2017) to ensure that hot and healthy options are available to staff, patients and visitors 24 hours a day. The range of meals are also below the 400kcal guideline for pre-prepared sandwiches and meals, and meet guidelines for both salt and sugar.
Ooft Kitchen! is locating its kitchens within universities, student halls, the workplace, 24/7 distribution centres, ferries and both NHS and private hospitals, and has appointed leading UK wholesaler Bidfood to deliver its ready meals to its kitchens nationally ensuring consistent supply and availability. Ooft Kitchen! has commenced its roll out to hospitals throughout the UK with 100 to be located during 2018.
