Better inform our guests
Promote best nutritional habits with guests will be achieved by providing better information. To raise the awareness of, and empower our guests in making their daily menu choices, all Elior Group entities have implemented programs adapted to their different categories of guests (children, adults and seniors). These programs are notably designed to improve diners’ knowledge of the ingredients and their properties and where the consumed products come from, and to provide traceability across the entire food chain.
The Group is particularly focused on providing exemplary transparency related to the nutritional criteria of its dishes and menus.
Our best practices
