They should be able to deliver customized food packages such as those that are heat-and-served and cook-chill meal options. The manufacturer can also provide multi-portion food options to provide food services to patients or guests with different needs in food amount. Aside from that, the food manufacturer should be able to offer a service that would allow their customers to label the food products under their company or brand name.
