Texture Concept Foods opens commercial kitchen
Australian food manufacturer Textured Concept Foods has opened a new and improved commercial kitchen in Campbellfield, Victoria today.
Textured Concept Food produces shaped, natural and texture modified meals for aged care residents, hospital patients and private customers.
The meals are pre-prepared in the commercial kitchen, and service providers only need thaw, heat and plate the meals.
TCF managing director Darren Benfell said TCF aimed to improve the dining experience of people on texture modified diets.
“Our goal is to ensure all people can truly dine with dignity,” Mr Benfell said.
TCF’s move to larger premises is a result of continued growth in demand for its products, it said.
Melbourne facility caters to Chinese ageing population
Approval for the development of an aged care facility in Springvale South in Melbourne has been given the green light to develop a facility that caters to Victoria’s ageing Chinese population.
The new facility will offer approximately 90 places and prioritise the cultural, dietary and linguistic needs of its residents.
The new facility will be delivered by Chinese advocacy peak body Chinese Community Council of Australia, Victorian Chapter and supported by not-for-profit aged care provider Doutta Galla Aged Services.
The facility is expected to be complete in 2022.
