We are delighted to announce our collaboration with Oakhouse Foods, renowned for supplying top-quality frozen meals. Together, they have launched a revolutionary 24/7 hot food vending machine.

Hospitals play a crucial role in patient well-being, and having access to nourishing meals around the clock is essential. In line with the government’s call for each hospital trust to offer a 24/7 hot food solution, Refreshment Systems and Oakhouse Foods have launched the 24/7 hot food vending machine.

With the NHS serving over 140 million meals to patients annually and a workforce of 1.25 million dedicated staff members in need of nourishing food, this solution is a much-needed innovation in the healthcare sector.

“Refreshment Systems is excited to collaborate with Oakhouse Foods to bring unmatched food solutions to hospitals nationally. We are dedicated to enhancing the dining experience for patients and staff, and this collaboration marks a significant step toward achieving that goal.”

This collaboration enables hospitals to provide a broad selection of high-quality frozen meals, accommodating a wide range of dietary preferences. This ensures that both patients, visitors and staff can enjoy tasty, nourishing meal options at any hour of the day, seven days a week. These user-friendly self-service food stations will be integrated into hospital facilities for convenient and hassle-free access.

Mark Pizey, Head of Marketing at Oakhouse Foods, shared his excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are thrilled to team up with Refreshment Systems to make our nutritious, delicious frozen meals easily accessible to hospital communities. Together, we are committed to enhancing the well-being of individuals during their hospital stay with meals available at any time of the day.”

I think the most important advantage RSL had over other potential suppliers was the use of the mobile drinks van. We knew we were getting quality before we switched suppliers!
