Fremantle Hospital

The Fremantle Hospital made changes com-mencing 1 January 2008 using the Traffic Light System. They set out to meet the Department of Health standards and provide a minimum of 60% green food and drinks,
30% amber food and drinks and a maximum of 10% red foods and drinks.

The kiosk started with small changes by switching from full cream milk to reduced fat milk, from regular cheese to reduced fat cheese, introducing reduced fat meats, high fibre bread and light margarine.

Several new products were then introduced, including sushi which has achieved spectacular sales over $2000 per week. Pies and hamburgers are still available, but these have been chosen exclusively from Star ChoiceTM Buyer’s Guide. All the pies and sausage rolls are sold at the same price to make serving more efficient. The end result has been a higher turnover, meaning more funds available to the hospital.

“Initially we had many complaints from our customers and January and February sales were slow, thereafter new monthly sales records were set nearly every month and over the full calendar year sales increased by a healthy 12.3%”, said Tony Nella, Coordin-ator, Fremantle Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.

Everyone has been a winner with the new canteen. Let’s have a look at the healthy options on their menu.
