temp-rite – your specialist for meal-distribution systems
temp-rite International is one of Europe’s market leaders in the provision of meal-distribution and food-service systems. Its earliest goal was to adapt the principle of the vacuum flask to create insulated trays that could carry entire meals. temp-rite’s first target customer group was airline companies. But nowhere is it more important that hot stays hot and cold stays cold than in hospitals and old people’s homes, which is where temp-rite’s tray systems have become best-sellers.
Today, meals eaten in hospitals, clinics, old people’s homes, rehab centres, schools, kindergartens and correctional establishments are served with the aid of temp-rite meal-distributions systems. And besides institutions such as these, catering companies also number among the satisfied users of our systems.
The classic temp-rite meal-distribution systems are our insulated trays. They accommodate a complete meal (breakfast, lunch or an evening meal) including side dishes, drinks, a starter soup, snacks, cutlery, a napkin, and a patient identifier card. Insulated compact trays have separate compartments for the individual meal components, and work on the principle of thermal zones. The compartments are kept separate from each other by their raised surrounding edges, which also serve to keep the inserted dishware items in place, and thus to prevent spillage. This makes it easier for the elderly and people with physical disabilities to eat unaided. And of course the thermal zones keep hot meal components hot and cold ones cold, even when they are right beside each other on the tray. With this meal-distribution system, each meal is contained in a server-and-cover combination shaped so as to allow dovetailed stacking of meals, which can thus be transported on open (and therefore cost-efficient) trolleys.
From its very earliest days, temp-rite International has concentrated on delivering fully rounded meal-distribution solutions. We have a comprehensive range of cutting-edge systems capable of maintaining food at the desired temperature on its way from the kitchen to the diner or patient, regardless of whether you are operating a buffet system or serving individualized meals.
