Hakuna Matata Frittata – it means no worries for hospitals
Flinders Private Hospital Adelaide and Healthscope Campbelltown Private Hospital are among a host of Australian hospitals enjoying cracking success in the kitchen with reduced contamination risks, as well as reduced overhead costs in preparation and cooking time.
The secret to their success is in the pre-prepared egg meals from Sunny Queen Meal Solutions – which offer increased efficiency in the kitchen and faster, nutritious meals for patients, with food solutions such as poached eggs, smashed egg, fritters, omelettes and more.
In response to industry demand, the range has just expanded to include Frittatas, with the hearty Vegetable and unique Asian Chicken and Corn varieties which make for a delicious lunch or a meal for any time of day.
Sunny Queen Meal Solutions’ Frittatas are a powerhouse of nutritious vegetables and real eggs, and their texture is suitable for many patients. With a vegetarian option and another with chicken to satisfy all palates, hospital kitchens can serve up tasty meals with chunky ingredients in a delicate egg base that will ensure patients remain nourished during their hospital visit.
Mark Shevlin of Flinders Private Hospital Adelaide, first considered Sunny Queen Meal Solutions as a way of reducing contamination risks in the kitchen.
“In a hospital environment we are dealing with a vulnerable population, so having a safer product like Sunny Queen Meal Solutions is really valuable as it reduces the risk of infection and illness associated with using raw egg,” he said.
“When you’re responsible for ordering food for thousands of sick and injured people, you need to ensure you’re considering taste, food safety, texture, how it’s prepared and so much more,”
John O’Hara, Managing Director of Sunny Queen Meal Solutions, said Sunny Queen Meal Solutions understands the balance between chefs wanting the best eggs and kitchen managers needing to streamline expenses.
“We know that Australian hospitals serve around 33 million meals each year - that’s a lot of preparation and cooking going on, and a lot of mouths to feed,” he said.
“Under the food safety plan, raw egg is a hazardous product and a lot of effort goes into the storage and handling of eggs in a commercial kitchen to reduce any risk of contamination. Pre-prepared frozen egg meals remove the need for powdered or raw eggs, so real eggs can be served with confidence,” he said.
Sunny Queen Meal Solutions products are cooked fresh and snap frozen, and are ideal for heating in microwaves and combi or conventional ovens. With no added artificial colours or flavours and HACCP certified, it’s the smart decision for cooking in large quantities.
