The German Nutrition Society (DGE) has awarded JOB&FIT certificates to MAN Catering at both the MAN SE and MAN Truck & Bus locations in Munich and Parkstadt Schwabing. Together with Professor Günther Wolfram from the DGE, Martin Neumeyer, Permanent Secretary at the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry, handed over the official JOB&FIT certificates to Jochen Schumm, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Board member responsible for employee relations at MAN SE and MAN Truck & Bus, as well as to representatives of MAN Catering.
Balanced meals are an essential requirement for fit and healthy employees. From now on, these can be guaranteed as all employees at the Munich sites can enjoy varied and tasty dishes based on the "DGE Quality Standards for Company Catering". An added advantage is that preferential use is made of fresh regional products, around 25 percent being of organic origin. As far as possible, no use is made of products containing additives subject to labeling requirements.
In the course of a complex certification process, the DGE considered the following criteria:
Food: midday meals (optimal selection of food and menu requirements), as well as criteria for snacks
Meal planning & preparation: planning and preparation of dishes for midday meals, menu structuring
Environment: general conditions in canteens, information for the guests, as well as legal provisions and employee qualifications
At the Munich sites, MAN Catering (man.eu) provides meals for an average number of 3,500 employees per day in the canteens, as well as 5,100 employees in its self-service shops offering snacks.
