Grazing Catering has launched ‘Desk Dine’ – a new catering service designed specifically to meet post-lockdown social distancing guidelines.
The service, which will sit alongside the caterer’s existing business operations, will help to keep London-based office staff safely in their workplace ‘bubbles’ by offering a minimal-risk catering delivery service.
Companies will be able to place food orders for their workforce on an ad-hoc or daily basis, all cooked off-site inline with guidance from health and safety experts, and delivered in safe and single drops – reducing multiple courier visits and the need for staff to leave the building during the working day.
With employers keen to minimise risk of illness and infection, the service will provide a practical solution for multi-tenanted buildings, reducing lift traffic created by staff all heading out to buy individual lunches and reducing contact with building security, loading bay, post-room and reception staff – all of whom have direct contact with external guests to buildings.
To provide maximum flexibility, customers can place orders through a new online proprietary platform, desktop or mobile site developed by the Grazing team and third-party ordering apps.
Sam Hurst, Chief Executive, Grazing, said: “Employers will want to do all they can to keep their staff safe and minimise any potential risk to their wellbeing. This idea that they will need to create Covid secure workplaces, or safe ‘work bubbles’, is going to be a major step in helping us all to transition back to as close to the normality that we once knew.
“We understand that these are testing times for so many businesses and offices across London. That’s why we’ve developed a flexible service for companies to be able to utilise during the initial post-lockdown period.
“Through our ‘Desk Dine’ service, they can provide individual meals for people to enjoy safely at their desks, whilst joining others in the office for a Zoom or Teams catch-up.”
The service is being made available for small groups and teams, to whole offices. Initially, it will be available for breakfast and lunch, with plans to launch a dinner option in due course.
