The Danish food company, Meyers, today operates canteens and delivers lunch solutions to big parts of Denmark and wanted to optimize the time for their chefs and staff out in the many kitchens. At the same time, the dishes had to be presented more visually to the guest in the canteens.
- We have had a test period in four of our largest canteens, where the buffet signs are a positive step in our digital journey. Our ambition is that the rest of our canteens should have the same solution, so that we can maintain the common thread, while still facilitating the chefs' daily routine, says Johanna Leonard, who is Head of Digital at Meyers.
Not only has Delfi’s dynamic solution with electronic shelf labels replaced the paper and time consumption of the canteens, but the signs are also equipped with the latest EPD display technology, which ensures that the menu is always visible on buffet tables without any glare. It creates a nice and easy visual overview for the visitors in the canteens.
There are many ways to build the sign, but right now Meyers and Delfi have created a simple design, where their own logo, own style and not least the allergens appear.
- I'm already playing around with the idea of making different messages visible through the signs. It's just the creativity that’s going to take place, but you could, among other things, also communicate that the food is organic and/or inform about the climate impact and CO2-imprint of the dishes, says Johanna.
