Quality assurance
Quality is the key

Before the finished meal lands on your plate, it goes through many process steps that are standardized and carefully checked. From the procurement of raw materials to production and friendly serving, we constantly put ourselves to the test both internally and externally - so that we can offer you the best possible quality every day.

Our hygiene standards
For your safety

With 20,000 meals served daily, we are one of the major caterers in Hamburg. Here, the responsibility is great.

That is why strict hygiene standards are a matter of course for us and are our top priority. Our hygiene management system covers all steps from the delivery of goods to serving. All relevant steps are documented and samples of the food are taken daily. Thus our procedure is transparent and comprehensible. Our employees receive regular training. In addition to the legally required inspections, we are regularly inspected by an external hygiene institute.

Our quality standards
You can rely on it

All goods are sourced by us from selected certified suppliers with whom we have been working reliably for decades in some cases. If possible, we prefer to source the goods regionally, and regular, almost daily deliveries guarantee the greatest possible freshness. The foodstuffs we use are subjected to strict quality guidelines. We pay particular attention to the relevant aspects of sustainability. We use only GMO-free products, free-range or barn-raised eggs, and organic and Fairtrade-quality coffee and tea. We also aim to avoid declarable ingredients and lots of packaging as much as possible.

We are really creative - our chefs keep an eye on you and the current trends to get new inspiration for the menu. The menu is regularly revised according to the season, among other things. We are especially pleased that the vegetarian and vegan dishes that we develop are so well received by you.

The production of the dishes and the offer is based on fixed recipes to ensure that it always tastes the same, the portions are the same size everywhere and there is the same price everywhere. In order to guarantee great quality and to produce little surplus, we cook for you as promptly as possible and always fresh. Preparation that preserves vitamins and nutrients is especially important to us. All this is regularly checked by our operations managers in internal audits.

A kind word for you and an open friendly atmosphere for your rest is important to us. That's why we ensure a good atmosphere in our on-site teams and also regularly train our employees. And if you don't like it - your feedback is gold for us. Just contact the staff on site or send us an e-mail.

Our symbols and marks

We want to be as transparent as possible. For your information, we use various symbols and labels on our food publications.
