Queen’s butcher to supply Sunrise
Caring Times, May 2014
Care provider Sunrise Senior Living has appointed Royal Warrant holder Donald Russell as its butcher.
Following the success of the recent Taste of Sunrise campaign, which highlighted the importance of nutritious eating for older people, the partnership will see Sunrise residents dining like Royalty as they enjoy meat sourced from the same supplier as the Queen.
Sunrise says high quality food is a very important feature of life at its homes, with residents having three meals every day, freshly prepared in the communities’ kitchens by Sunrise’s talented chefs. The company says Donald Russell’s exceptional meat will provide another fine ingredient to complement the succulent dishes.
Before the appointment, the dining team at Sunrise carried out in-depth trials of both Donald Russell’s product and service as well as inspecting their facilities in Aberdeen, Scotland – the heartland of quality British meat.
Christopher Dean, Head of Dining Services at Sunrise, said: “Food is extremely important to us at Sunrise, and we are hugely proud to serve our residents only the highest quality ingredients. We travelled the length and breadth of the UK to source the best meat and are delighted to have appointed Donald Russell as our butcher.”
Donald Russell said: “We are delighted to be working with Sunrise senior living. To work with an organisation that shares our ethos and passion; providing an exceptional quality offering to our customers makes this partnership very exciting for us. We look forward to developing a long term partnership and working together.”
