ijuhbhbghdWhether in school nutrition, corporate dining, prepared meals, or even retail food service environments, Whitsons is devoted to enhancing life one meal at a time.  Our talented team of food service professionals, registered dietitians and registered dietetic technicians are continuously going above and beyond to offer the most wholesome and nutritious meals possible while balancing nutrition guidelines, menu requirements, and customer preferences.

 

School Nutrition: Our culinarians are always finding new ways to embrace current food trends and develop well balanced meals that provide big flavor. In our school nutrition accounts, getting creative in introducing new foods to younger palettes is our specialty.  School nutrition in particular has experienced a major transformation over the past decade, with more emphasis on whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and an effort to decrease the amount of calories, fat, and sodium in school meals.  Whitsons has welcomed these changes as stronger support for the development of higher quality ingredients from manufacturers, allowing us in turn to create meals that properly fuel growing minds and bodies.

 

Corporate Dining: Our corporate dining accounts enjoy a variety of meals that include comfort food, ethnic themes, current food trend inspirations, and also our Smart Choice recipes that meet Whitsons’ specific nutrition standards. Whitsons manages corporate cafes, executive dining rooms, kiosks, company stores and even vending programs.

 

Prepared Meals: The meals prepared in our USDA facility are very diverse, meeting nutrient and ingredient guidelines for emergency services, seniors, and many other populations at the state and federal levels.  After over three decades in the food service industry, Whitsons continues to innovate and thrive amid nonstop change.  To learn more about our services and Nutrition Programs, visit our website at www.whitsons.com.
