Athena Catering Solution provided by Le Bureau Limited.

In industrial environment such as hospital and prisons, prisoners and patients need to be provided with nutritional meals. Prisoners need to be provided with five main options and sides and sweet options. Patients also need to be offered nutritional meal options.

Prior to presenting menu options to prisoners and patients, Athena our catering solution provides dietitians and catering staff with the ability to build model recipes and menus. Model recipes are defined in terms of their caloric, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, allergens, consumer acceptance, etc.  There are some forty elements that need to be considered in the analysis, including special menus to meet dietary conditions, vegetarians, vegans, allergen free, etc. 

Athena uniquely provides the facility to measure recipes and menus at the planning, preparation and serving stages.  

The issue that Athena addresses is that as ingredient suppliers and ingredients change, cooking methods change in recipes, athena provides an accurate measure as to how production recipes and menus meet model recipes. Hence alerting staff if the recipe and menus do not meet standards.

Athena can also determine at production level which recipe from a range of recipes meets the model recipes.  

Menus are presented to patients and prisoners with complete nutritional and allergen details so informed decisions can be met.

Meals in prisons are normally selected by prisoners two weeks in advance providing time for ordering and preparation. In a hospital same day selection, preparation and service occurs.

Athena uniquely provides several options for obtaining meal selections from prisoners and patients: paper and scan menus, tablet computers, smart phones (Bring Your Own Device), computers on wards.

Once the menu numbers have been collated:  meals are prepared, purchasing takes place, inventory pick and pack lists prepared, meal severed, receipting good in, etc. 

Athena provides a consolidated system that meets the needs of the whole catering process. From inventory control, recipe maintenance, menu planning, meals selection, meal preparation, serving meals, health and safety, cost control and purchasing. Athena provides a ful range of management reports and financial operational reports to monitor the catering operation.

The real beauty of the system is that it can be implemented in Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Care Homes, Prisons, etc. it is a system which is highly functional, but can be adapted to any environment. The system architecture has been designed to meet individual client’s needs.  

The solution provided by Athena can also be extended to schools and colleges, home cares and chains of restaurants. Visit our lending application here:

Why Factoring is the Abdication of Credit Control…

Let’s face it, nobody likes chasing a client for payment. There’s nothing quite like upsetting a supplier you’ve worked hard to please. However, it’s an important, necessary part of every business.

It’s really easy to forget to forward an invoice to the finance department and with so many companies requesting longer payment terms has never been so difficult to get right.

Banks will sell factoring as a way of mitigating the challenges of credit control, but it comes at a cost and could be avoided with good business practice.

Unsecured Business Loans

If you are looking for a quick and affordable loan for your business, then an unsecured business loan through rebuildingsociety.com could be the right choice for you.

We understand that businesses don’t want to wait to initiate growth plans; markets change and you need to be able to respond and take opportunities.

rebuildingsociety.com facilitates unsecured business loans of up to £50,000 through our database of individual lenders with an appetite to lend to creditworthy UK businesses, in a time-scale of between two and four weeks: much quicker than applying for an unsecured loan through a bank.

You’re also borrowing money from individuals with a vested interest in the success of your business. They will promote your services, buy your products or connect you with potential customers – you don’t get that sort of value from a bank either.

rebuildingsociety.com also doesn’t charge for early repayment of your unsecured business loan, giving you flexibility, without penalising you for a successful period of trading. You also have the option of choosing a Private Peer Loan, which isn’t published publicly on our platform, but is instead accessible by private invitation that you send to chosen recipients.

All that is required from you is a personal guarantee, and you can begin expanding your business right away.
