Fresh and Sustainable: Catering for Corporate Meetings

During a busy workday, it’s often difficult to navigate the wide choice of foods to eat, let alone catering for a large group of employees during an office meeting. 


In the following article, we outline the importance of choosing sustainable corporate catering and healthier choices for your employees and how this can benefit them and the environment at the same time. 


Struggles of sustainability in business


When it comes to grabbing a quick bite to eat during the workday, employees would rather settle for convenience over quality. This usually includes non-sustainable foods such as fast food, which don’t keep them full for long.


However, the sad fact is that healthier foods and better choices often come with a hefty price tag and deter people from purchasing these goods. Specifically with the cost of living, people would rather buy something they can afford when they are hungry rather than take the time to think about what will sustain them for the rest of the day.


The struggles of getting fresh and healthy food into working hours

When thinking about  food delivery services, such as Deliveroo and Just Eat, many of them deliver quick and convenient meals, largely from fast food chains.  However, many restaurants and providers in your local area would make healthy meals for you but, sadly, lack  the funds to deliver.

Without the convenience of these delivery services, nearby employees and employers will seek the closest food establishments and invest in these services. 

During a busy work day, employees will usually need grab-and-go meals that can be eaten as they work or between meetings and conferences. Though convenient in the short term, employees will be left searching for more sustainable foods such as snacks and pre-dinner meals to fill the hole where a sustainable lunch should have sat, as well as suffering from sugar crashes. 

How Eating Healthy Increases Productivity

By choosing healthier choices when it comes to lunch, you can ensure that your energy is stored most efficiently and can be released over a suitable amount of time to achieve optimal energy levels. 


Not only does consuming healthy food help with energy level, but it also boosts brain power to help you perform better at your job. Studies show that those who eat fruit and vegetables every day show a 25 per cent higher job performance than those who don’t. All the more reason to pack in the fruit and veg where you can!


Utilising sustainable products


We as a nation, and a planet for that matter, are becoming far more aware of our individual contribution to global warming, and it is becoming easier than ever to make smarter choices when it comes to sourcing sustainable products. 


By investing in sustainable products, you are able to save money in the long run by negating the need for constant replacements and will also reduce the amount of food and materials that go to waste.


By opting for sustainable practices over convenient choices, you can make a real difference to the attitudes towards sustainability within the workplace by encouraging employees to indulge in affordable and sustainable catering.


The best way to promote happiness, well-being, and sustainability is to consider each factor of your corporate meeting, which may even include investing in a professional corporate catering service, such as the services of Green Bike Food. This will inspire more sustainable ways of thinking among peers too.
