OUR CHEFS COOK YOUR FOOD EVERYDAY. THAT IS WHY WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO VISIT SUPPLIERS, TO EAT IN LOCAL RESTAURANTS, TAKE THEM ON FORAGING EXPEDITIONS AND ABOVE ALL, NURTURE THEIR LOVE OF HOSPITALITY.
That’s our recipe for great food. Albacore has always believed in using local producers and eating food in season, when it is at its best. We know that Scottish farmers and growers offer some incredible produce; whether that is top quality, high welfare meat, sustainably caught fish or sparklingly fresh fruit and vegetables, so why look elsewhere?
Making a difference in the workplace
We put the health and wellbeing of our customers at the top of the agenda. Our healthy eating policy is based around the idea of choice – we don’t dictate to our customers, however we do offer information that promotes healthy choices. Many of our clients are committed to the Healthy Working Lifestyle Award and we are hard at work to support them.
Healthy cooking and planning
All our cooking is carried out with healthy eating in mind. We recognise the links between diet, nutrition and preventable disease and pay close attention to the guidelines on the healthscotland.com website. Our nutritional therapist is involved in menu planning to ensure a good nutritional balance for every menu. We actively reduce levels of fat, salt and sugar in the foods we prepare, increased the use of fruit, vegetables, rice, pastas, cereals and bread, and reward customers by offering a variety of vegetables or salad which can be included within the price of a meal.
