No one can deny that ethnic diversity is here and it’s growing. More than ever, foodservice leaders in long term care and hospitals are seeking creative solutions to meet these continuously evolving needs of their clients. Sourcing, preparing and serving authentic tasting ethnic dishes can be both nutritionally and operationally challenging. There is an imminent need to address this issue and have suitable products available on the market. In this webinar, you will get a better understanding of the ethnic food market, hear what other organizations are saying about the ethnic food challenge, and learn how to implement solutions for ethnic foods in your own foodservice operation.
