Wellness Catering: A Win-Win Workplace Strategy

"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art."
— La Rochefoucald

Almost 2,500 years ago, the great physician, Hippocrates asserted that good food is medicine and bad food could cause harm. He emphasized the power of a healthy diet and regular exercise in achieving optimal wellness. It's no secret that mass-produced convenience foods, toxic additives and a preference for unhealthy fats, sugar and salt have taken their toll on our health for decades. A spate of recent documentaries, podcasts and books has spotlighted the culprits in our food system and shone a light on recent advancements and promising new holistic paradigms in nutrition.

A growing body of evidence directly correlates our food choices to key productivity values in the workplace.

According to Wellright, (Wellness & Nutrition March 1st, 2023):

"Employees who opt for predominantly unhealthy food choices are 66% more likely to be less productive than those who actively make healthy choices. Proper nutrition enables employees to enjoy":

  • Increased cognitive function
  • Better concentration
  • More energy and motivation
  • Decreased depression and anxiety
  • Heightened self-esteem
  • Lower absenteeism

A Clean Bill of Fare

From its inception, Caroline's Fine Food has made every effort to design consciously ethical, nutritious and clean options for our region's burgeoning corporate community. Caroline's core drivers are:

Aesthetics: Surprising and delighting our clients with a consistently high creative and culinary standard. The Caroline's brand is an inspired blend of deliciously nuanced fusion cuisine and well-loved classics. The menus emphasize elegance, simplicity and gorgeous flavors.

Health: Menus that highlight seasonal foods that are locally sourced wherever possible. The vast majority of our offerings are made from scratch from unprocessed or minimally processed ingredients. Our dishes incorporate healthy grains, vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, seafood, healthy fats, herbs and spices and delicious homemade sauces. We are delighted to source organics, pasture-raised, grass-fed options upon request! We also work closely clients to create menus that include vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, lactose, gluten, nut and shellfish-free options.

Professionalism: Emphasizing personalized, stress-free event planning, excellent service and multiple convenient, time-saving options to meet your company's needs.

Sustainability: Offering zero waste event options, fully compostable plate, cutlery, glassware and packaging. We work with a network of trusted partners who provide linen, glassware, china and cutlery rentals. We use an attractive selection of wooden trays, boards, ceramic platters and vessels and reusable serving utensils at our events.

Caroline's has worked with many local companies and schools interested in boosting the health, happiness and productivity of their valuable employees and students.
