What’s more, additional categories such as janitorial and medical supplies recently showed savings of over 15%.
The support goes further than that. allmanhall provide advice on how to maximise catering budgets. It’s so important for care caterers to have information regarding which products are stable and which are volatile when it comes to price movement. allmanhall do exactly this. For example, having a greater proportion of stable products making up your residents’ menus will make it easier to manage the impact of rising prices.
“The mobilisation of the new catering suppliers, and the transfer of existing ones to allmanhall was smoothly managed and supported expertly… allmanhall’s approach provides my team with reassurance and peace of mind.”

There’s currently a harsh spotlight on homes without strong procurement practices. Despite chefs working tirelessly to cost recipes, source the best value ingredients, manage portion control and waste, some will continue to struggle to produce food at a low cost without the experience of a procurement team to manage and negotiate price increases for them.
allmanhall also reduce the pressure on finance resources by consolidating billing and providing admin efficiencies and further savings.
