I don’t know if you have had the opportunity to eat food served in a New Zealand hospital recently. It’s bad but there is some choice and it only takes about two weeks to get your intestinal tract back to some form of functioning. To give the responsibility and quality control to an international corporation is just asking for GMO laden crap to be given to people who are already vulnerable and weak!
The Government plans to close all hospital kitchens across New Zealand and outsource the making of hospital meals, which will cost 1300 jobs nationwide.
Up to 50 hospital kitchens will be closed.
Currently a third of hospitals make their own meals and deliver them to the wards onsite under their District Health Board.
The rest are run by Spotless Services and Compass, two private contractors – they operate within hospital kitchens.
