Back to the office: rediscover the pleasure of a gourmet break in the canteen!

Nouveautés B&I
After months teleworking from home, some employees are now being allowed to return to the office. Elior’s catering teams are at the ready and eager to welcome their guests back to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the staff canteen. On the program, summer recipes and restaurants pulsating to the rhythm of sporting and musical events!

Tasty, seasonal meals

In the kitchen, Elior’s catering teams are busy developing summer recipes: bowls, salads, mozzarella-pesto burgers, etc. After months working from home, employees can at last meet up with their colleagues for lunch in the self-service, or buy take-out lunches to eat either outside or in their office. For example, the Chefs & Go solution designed especially for employees “on-the-go”, enables guests to order and/or take out tasty, seasonal dishes that they can enjoy wherever and whenever they want.

Focus will also be on summer flagship products such as melon, tomato, apricot and peaches. This summer, apples, peaches, nectarines and apricots will be sourced from eco-responsible orchards; an approach aimed to ensure production methods that respect the environment so as to offer quality and healthy fruit that is rich in flavor! Committing to these certified products means promoting best agricultural practices, participating in the development of the local economic structure and placing Elior at the heart of sustainable French sectors.
