Top marks for the Werner & Mertz staff canteen

20 Mar 2014 - Mainz - Company-News

The meals available in the Werner & Mertz staff canteen are balanced, appetising and varied. This is why WISAG Catering, the responsible canteen service provider, received top marks for the JOB&FIT certificate awarded by the German Nutrition Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung, DGE). The wholesome dishes prepared for the Werner & Mertz employees in the staff canteen according to the latest scientific findings were awarded top marks and hence the JOB&FIT seal of quality.

The excellent result was among other things due to the daily vegetarian menu, the quality of the food and the variety of dishes. The certification requirements still include a daily choice of fruit, vegetables, wholemeal products and low-fat dairy products, as well as a daily healthy JOB & FIT dish. The communication with the diners is also assessed. For example, this includes a menu that provides comprehensible and transparent information about the dishes and their ingredients.

The “DGE quality standard for the company catering” is intended to contribute to a more balanced and healthier diet at the workplace. This is a matter of course for Werner & Mertz, which does not see sustainability and employee orientation as mere fads, but as embodied in company tradition. Thus, not only are employees offered a healthy breakfast and lunch, but also an in-house health programme.
