2014 Revenues: $39,000,000
Culinary & Nutrition Solutions (CNS) is a unit of HHS (Hospital Housekeeping Systems), a hospital services management company traditionally focused on housekeeping, transport and related services that expanded into foodservice in 2011.
Success with its BRG-Fit line of anti-inflammatory products in Baton Rouge in 2013 inspired CNS to continue in the same vein and expand the program into multiple locations, producing increased retail sales.
The Chef’s Table culinary exhibition program also remains a key focus, with continued expansion and development. CNS expanded its internal recipe development and highlighted an Intranet system that ensures company wide consistency, better compliance to standards, and better utilization of the purchasing program.
It also continued to refine its menus after receiving positive feedback from patients and staff last year by using fresh ingredients and offering anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory diets.
Other initiatives in 2014 included an enhanced hourly training program, the development of an internal auditing tool to ensure standards are met and directors are all following established policies and procedures, and the continued development of the recipe database, including adding recipes appropriate for a wide variety of diets.
