After two years in a pandemic, with supply chain shortages and new variants impacting our everyday choices and lifestyle, there’s a lot of uncertainty about what will happen next.
We are all used now, to postponing the return to normality, however we want to translate our desire for change and new values into the currently truly modifiable aspects of our lives.
Working from home is slowly becoming a hybrid model that represents the future of the world of work. Many restaurants are making their dining room spaces available for people tired of home kitchen tables forced to turn into home offices.
And while society and restaurants reconfigures the use of urban spaces, with Delita you have an opportunity of transforming and integrating your office space in a precious way to experience food, quality and freshness.
Here some of the directions our Brand is keeping heading to, from 2022 onwards.
According to the World Food Market, food trends on a global scale, are useful tool for reading the factors that guide consumer choices. Sonya Gafsi Oblisk, Head of Marketing at Whole Foods, presented the report, commented: “As the food industry adjusts relatively slowly to this change in search of a new normal, we expect consumers to give priority to products and drinks that can offer added values, and products that support one’s sense of well-being, such as those coming from urban gardens or cultivated through agricultural processes that help safeguard the health of the soil “.
We at Delita have decided to bring the selection of the raw materials going in our dishes at the core of our Brand purpose. Starting from the choice of fresh and quality ingredients, we realise healthy meals that we are loving to eat.
Danilo Ange’, Delita’s Master chef, makes the selection of our primary ingredients with accuracy and passion. Every Delita’s recipes is a mix between extreme attention in the selection and preparation of the dish, Italian authenticity and a twist of modernity.
Our meals are freshly prepared and preserved through our innovative production process and packaging, to guarantee that any use of preservative of additive is banned. Our meals are fresh as they have been just cooked by Danilo himself.
While it’s without question the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted food and nutrition trends in the last two years, nutritionists agree the trends that have emerged from this moment in history are likely here to stay, such as online shopping and the desire for more immune-enhancing foods.
Delita has been created with a strong focus on healthy nutrition: with originality and taste we have created a full Menu that differentiates completely from the range of ready meals currently in the market. From antipasti to the full meals, our wide selection of ingredients like aubergine, vegetables, spinach, pumpkin, provides the uniqueness of the authentic Italian cuisine, coupled with wonderful complex flavours.
This it’s a healthy way of cooking and eating that requires only a few ingredients and your “last touch”, if you desire it.
Furthermore our meals do not contain any artificial preservatives or additives and this make our dishes 100% healthy.
After The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP26, and the various environmental disasters of 2021, climate change is considered a more serious problem than public opinion (78%).
The world needs to remedy it with the utmost urgency (82%). In the meantime, 97% say they are willing to change at least some of their habits.
Our common future is made up of “life cycle thinking” or otherwise known as relationship between food, environment and consumer.
The Norwegian First Prime Minister Gro Harlem Bruntland in a report of few years ago wrote about the critical global environment and described the definition of sustainability as follow:
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
According to the latest studies, the younger generations (Millennials born in 1982-1995 1995, Gen Z born in 1996 – 2009 and Gen Alpha born 2010 to present day) are especially environmentally conscious.
Young people seem to be very conscientious and sensitive to the environment around them.
Delita wants to give its contribution, providing eco-friendly packaging solutions that meet our customers’ aesthetic, environmental and performance goals.
Every day we strive to understand how the environmental impact of the connection between packaging and food works, looking for the best compromise between the quality of our product and the environmental impact.
Every day in the UK we waste 20m slices of bread, 280 tonnes of poultry, 4.4m potatoes and much more.
Households squander about 70% of the UK’s 9.5m tonnes of waste food every year. About a third of all the world’s food goes to waste, and producing, transporting and letting that food rot releases 8-10% of global greenhouse gases. If food waste were a country, it would have the third-biggest carbon footprint after the US and China, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation.
Food waste fell sharply last year during lockdown as people stuck at home began to use leftovers, plan meals and freeze food rather than throw it away. Once lockdown ended, however, food waste rose again.
Growing, processing, packaging and transporting food all contribute to climate change.
Delita has thought also about this. We have chosen the perfect size for our boxes to avoid wasting and buy unnecessary food that easily expire and go to bin right away. And you can preserve our meals in the fridge for long time, without loosing their taste and quality.
As a natural consequence of the ‘no food wasting’, Delita becomes an option for a more regular, healthy lifestyle. You can plan your daily diet exactly by choosing between ready meal, suited to your personal good taste.
This way will save you not only on food, but you also time, effort and money.
And once you save time, you are free to use the rest of your day in other and even working from home can be transformed in a restaurant tasting food place.
Cook less, eat healthy and delicious and save time.
Restaurants and supermarkets have been hit hard over the past two years.
First with shutdowns and lower in-person dining, and now with lingering supply chain issues, higher food costs, and a strained labor force. These challenging conditions are pushing forward initiatives like robotic kitchens, ghost kitchens, smaller menus, more focused menus, outdoor seating, and even unmanned vending machines.
Ordering food at home is a gesture that the pandemic has made us more and more familiar with. But it is not surprising if in the receipt we will notice a slight increase in prices. The restaurateurs who have embarked on the adventure of delivery relying only on their own strength are looking for a strategy to re-enter the expenses, already tested extensively by the second wave of Covid.
The restaurants make themselves available to the community, as well as Delita.
In order to expand and increase sales, we have made available the preparation and delivery of gourmet foods at home.
Basically, we try to give a good boost to our Restaurant partners and meet the changing needs of the people we care about.
This year we want to grow and give value to our products, while maintaining the tradition, authenticity and respecting the environment that surround us.
