– My role is to create new dishes and to stay attuned to the needs and expectations of our Customers, which is especially important in diet catering. The team needs to be briefed about new dishes, they also have to be trained, because we are preparing hundreds of boxes a day which translates to thousands of meals. Of course, every dish in diet catering has to be approved by our dietitians to ensure that the calorie count is correct, that it contains all the required nutrients, and doesn’t contain anything deemed undesirable – only then does a dish make it to the LightBox menu.
