The National Association of Care Catering (NACC) is hosting a series of virtual seminars to support care caterers to continue to deliver excellence in nutrition and hydration and positive dining experiences, whilst coping with the pressures of the pandemic.
The virtual seminars will include advice from expert speakers, presentations, demonstrations and conversations.
Topics range from nutrition and hydration expertise and catering for dietary requirements, to important practical support, such as facilitating supplier connections to keep care caterers up to date with the latest innovations, products, services and solutions when Covid-19 restrictions make this more difficult.
